Kingfisher Wilderness Adventures has been running fully outfitted guided kayak tours on the coast of British Columbia since 1999. Kingfisher’s Kayak With Whales – Orca Waters Base Camp tour is recognized as a “Canadian Signature Experience” by Destination Canada. The Canadian Signature Experiences collection offers the best Canada has to offer. As ambassadors of Canada’s tourism brand, “Canada. Keep Exploring”, these memorable Signature Experiences meet rigorous criteria to ensure they stand out in a crowded and competitive marketplace.

At Kingfisher. we pride ourselves on small group sizes, allowing close personal attention and minimal impact on the environment and the wildlife we view from our kayaks. Our maximum group size is eight guests with two guides, which is a lower ratio than most of the industry.

Kingfisher’s kayak guides are passionate about kayaking and the wilderness and will eagerly share their knowledge with you, ensuring a trip full of memories you will never forget. Most of our guides have been with Kingfisher for a number of seasons and they are one of the reasons that we have many guests returning year after year. All of our kayak guides are certified by the Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of British Columbia.

In addition to the Kayak With Whales – Orca Waters Base Camp tour, Kingfisher offers other kayak tours from four to fifteen days long of Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Archipelago off northern Vancouver Island,  Nuchatlitz and Nootka Island on Vancouver Island’s west coast, Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve, and Haida Heritage Site on Haida Gwaii, and the Great Bear Rainforest on British Columbia’s central coast.
