The Gear you need to explore Gwaii Haanas


With more than two decades of experience in Gwaii Haanas, we've gotten to know exactly what kind of gear works - and doesn't - when paddling or boating in the area. At our office, we have a small store where we stock some of the essentials, including selections from the following brands:

  • Icebreaker merino wool clothing and socks
  • Kokatat PFDs
  • Helly Hansen raingear
  • MSR camp stoves and fuel
  • Thermarest sleeping mats
  • Sealine drybags
  • Assorted kayak safety gear and accessories.

If you need something specific for your trip, please call in advance to be sure we have it in stock. We are happy to hold items to be sure that you don't miss out.

We are also a retailer for Seaward Kayaks. With a wide variety of kayaks from clear bottomed day boats to giant expedition doubles, Seaward has something for everyone. Seaward kayaks are all hand crafted in B.C. out of high quality materials and components. We use these boats in our rental fleet and usually have some used kayaks in stock. We can also order in anything on the Seaward website. Kayaks built to order do take some time to make, so be sure to order new boats several months in advance of a planned trip!
