We've got the Services & gear you need to explore Gwaii Haanas by Kayak
We offer all the services and equipment that you need to organize an independent kayaking trip into Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. Gwaii Haanas encompasses the southern portion of the islands of Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands). This remote wilderness area is an ideal kayaking destination: a place where you can go days without seeing another person, explore untouched shorelines each day and take your pick of pristine beaches to camp on at night. Gwaii Haanas also offers the chance to learn about the Haida First Nations culture and see awe-inspiring totem poles standing in ancient village sites. Keep in mind, however, that the area is considered an advanced paddling destination, and if you do not have previous experience you should consider taking a guided tour, offered by several excellent kayak tour companies.
Services offered for Kayakers
Because of the vast size of the Gwaii Haanas area, most kayakers choose to get dropped off and/or picked up by our high-speed Zodiacs allowing you to maximize your paddling time!
We rent high quality single and double fiberglass sea kayaks. We also rent and sell essential paddling and outdoor equipment. The minimum rental time is one week.
