Family Kayaking Vacations for All Ages - Vancouver Island Adventures

There's not a better or more flexible wilderness setting for families than our Base Camp on Spring Island! We have frequently hosted multi-generation family kayaking experiences where daily kayak outings, shore-based activities, and general play have exceeded everyone's expectations.

Thanks for an amazing visit. This is a great place to come with a young family... and all the older relatives and friends.

Choose 4-day or 5-day Sea Otter Kayak Tour base camp packages if newer to kayaking or camping with your kids, or not sure how it will suit everyone. From our Wilderness Retreat base camp, it's easy to design each day with just the right mix of varied activities.  Some may choose a relaxing day in camp while others are out kayaking or hiking - playing and exploring the wonders of "Nature's Disneyland".

Our longer 6-day Sea Otter Kayak Tour is also a hit with those already confident that our location and programs are a great fit.

...a special thank-you for being so thoughtful, patient and caring with our daughters. They learned so much this week about tidal life and our oceans, and we discovered a new sport we can continue to enjoy as a family!

Remember, we're about much more than just sea kayaking - there are other activities, distractions, and relaxation options for those less interested or able to paddle. And paddling doesn't have to be an all day event!  We keep the daily plan flexible - it's YOUR family kayaking vacation.

How many sea kayaking adventures come complete with a meadow for croquet, ladder golf, a "window" kayak for viewing life below, a stand up paddleboard, a hands-on natural history display, a tree to climb into, and a cozy wood stove in an all-weather shelter?
