British Columbia, in all its splendour, is such a thrill to explore. There’s not much that can make me appreciate this province more than a mossy forest walk through towering Douglas Firs or a paddle around a cove, rolling over waves and water so clear I can spot the sea kelp stretching to reach surface sunbeams. We constantly find new ways to experience BC’s natural beauty and that’s where tours like those offered from Wildcoast Adventures come in.
Wildcoast Adventures offers a variety of kayaking options including tours around Discovery Islands and Desolation Sound. Last year I gave away an amazing kayak trip with Wildcoast and I’m excited to announced that we’ve partnered again to give away a bucket-list experience to one of my very lucky readers.
Wildcoast Adventures Kayak Getaway
My contest is for their signature Orca Camp, where you’ll stay near the Michael Biggs Robson Bight Ecological Reserve:
This vacation begins with pre-trip accommodation at the beautiful Gowlland Harbour Boutique Resort on Quadra Island and includes a 4 day & 3 night remote camping and kayaking experience to see Killer Whales in Johnstone Strait. You will begin your vacation on peaceful Quadra Island where the spectacular beauty of the resort’s waterfront location encourages visitors to reconnect with nature.
After enjoying your first day and a peaceful night’s sleep at the resort, you will take a water taxi to Wildcoast’s remote Orca Camp where you will kayak each day on the lookout for Orcas! This is a great location to find killer whales as they often feed in the kelp beds just off the Orca Camp beach. This glamping experience includes beachcombing, hikes, fishing, awesome food, a native sauna, evening campfires, sleeping in safari tents, and star filled nights!
Heading back home after this trip you will be relaxed and inspired by the experience you’ve had disconnecting from your busy life and reconnecting with nature.

Wildcoast was born out of the longstanding kayak company Coastal Spirits, which provided wilderness kayak camping tours, including the Orca Basecamp in Johnstone Strait for over 15 years. With its owners looking to retire, Expedition Manager, Damon Stapinsky saw the opportunity to take the company to the next level. Having spent entire summers working the front-lines on tours with guests from around the world, he had a keen awareness of what made a great experience and what was now needed to ensure great kayaking tours in Canada could be had by the new generations of adventure travelers. By going above and beyond for guests and sharing knowledge of the area and passion for the outdoors, the newly reborn Wildcoast is providing kayak tours that provide new equipment, fresh menus designed by a gourmet chef and packaged as well as custom kayak trip offerings in order to cater to the unique dynamic of each group of guests.
