Gods Pocket Guided Sea Kayaking Journey- Vancouver Island, BC, Aug 21 - 26

Gods Pocket Guided Sea Kayaking Journey- Vancouver Island, BC, Aug 21 - 26

star-5
1
Gods Pocket is an exceptional area to explore and to seek out wildlife viewing opportunities. The deep upwelling of cold water and currents offer plenty of food to our larger marine mammals including the Northern Resident Orcas, Humpback whales and Stellar Sea Lions. Knowing the times of the currents and having local knowledge is incredibly valuable to maximize our flow with these currents and to position ourselves to view wildlife without interfering in their behaviours. Highlights in the area are most definitely the high probability of whale sighting and exploring parts of the Marine Park.
