TRIP IS FULL. To be added to a wait list, contact Bill Porter
This is a six-day adventure to the beautiful islands located off the northeast corner of Vancouver Island, BC. We might see whales and orcas, and maybe some bears and wolves on this journey. We will use our campsite on Balaklava Island as a home base and do day paddles to the neighboring islands. We will visit a staffed light house, but that should be the only interaction with other humans on this trip. Nolan Point typically has few visitors due to its isolated location and therefore makes an excellent destination for kayaking and wilderness camping.
Trip leader Bill Porter has paddled this area several times and will choose daily destinations and routes based on conditions, but there are many options for both protected and exposed paddling. Hiking is also possible as there are CMT's (culturally modified trees) close to the campsite. Fishing and snorkeling are options too!
Paddlers must have rescue skills and be able to assist in rescues if necessary, and must have kayak camping experience and the endurance to paddle exposed 2-mile-plus crossings.
Contact Bill Porter if you are interested.
Limit: 5 paddlers
