Foch Lagoon - May 2018
Part of a historical First Nations travel route
between the Douglas and the Skeena, this area is abundant with visual pleasures of both flora and fauna.
May in Foch is the optimal time to view the rushing waterfalls fed by the spring melt and the abundant wildlife particularly the seal pups!
Gilttoyees Inlet and Miskatla Inlet - June 2018
As part of the Foch-Gilttoyees BC Parks
Conservancy, this inlet provides kayakers of all skill levels a variety of
opportunities. Highly valued for its well-developed inter-tidal flats,
salt-water marshes and meadow communities, the Gilttoyees and neighboring
Miskatla Inlet provide ample opportunity for wildlife viewing both in the water
and on the shore.
This destination is available every Saturday and Sunday in June or on weekdays by special request.
Sue and Loretta Channel Area - July 2018
With so much area to explore you will want to go more than once!
For the beginner… this protected area makes for great paddling while you are still honing your skills. For the more advanced the islands Loretta and Maitland await! Or give yourself a workout and cross Devastation Channel for a dip in the hotsprings at Weewanie!
This destination is available every Saturday and Sunday and any weekday provided 6 or more bookings have been confirmed.
Weewanie Hot Springs Provincial Park - August
Located on Devastation Channel, kayaking along the shoreline is rewarding for all levels of kayakers. Access to many shoreline spots to get out and explore or to just stretch your legs is available along this stretch of the channel. And after a day of paddling, there is no better treat than a swim in the bay and a dip in the hot springs. Within the park there is room to pitch tents to enjoy a campfire in the fire ring provided -- an amazing way to spend an evening!
