The Great Bear Rainforest Mothership Kayak Trip encompasses all that is wild, remote, and beautiful about British Columbia. Those wanting to experience the true wilderness of B.C. need not look any further. The Great Bear Rainforest encompasses more than 2.1 million acres of rugged coast. Enjoy the adventures of sea kayaking during the day. And partaking in the luxury of our mother ship each evening.
Paddle past 1200 year-old cedar trees and underneath hundred foot waterfalls. Towering snow capped mountains look down on you as you cruise through the glacier-carved Fjords. Bask in hot springs and eat fish, crab and prawns from the ocean. Experience how nature not only provides the staples, but also provides luxurious living! This incredible scenery and fabulous experience invokes a sense of grandeur. It leaves you feeling awe-inspired and privileged to have been part of such an amazing place.
This area is home to most species of wildlife found in British Columbia. Humpback and grey whales, porpoises, dolphins, seals, sea lions, sea otter, Orca and salmon are abundant. Many species of coastal birds and song-birds exist along this coastline. While on land sitka deer, black bear, grizzly bears, cougars, wolves, and the elusive spirit bear all exist in a delicate balance. The silence of the kayak allows us to experience wildlife in their natural state, allowing guests plenty of opportunity for photography and to revel in the awesome nature of these animals.
Partake in the adventure of sea kayaking during the day while viewing wildlife and pristine coastline. Then return to our mother ship each evening for gourmet meals and the luxury of a comfortable bed. You will be accompanied on this trip by a knowledgable sea kayak guide Matt Edwards.
