Into the Night Kayak Journey

Into the Night Kayak Journey

$114 per person

The “Into the Night” Journey presents an opportunity to sea kayak at night. It is a surreal experience to open our senses as we discover the nocturnal world.. Living organisms emit light, causing the water to glow and sparkle magically. Any motion in the ocean accents this offering, a dance of light as we paddle in darkness. The night sky is magnificent and the tour offers time for solo reflection in a safe and silent environment.

Experience the ocean in a unique way that few have had the opportunity to enjoy!  Witness the waters and marine life of the Sechelt Inlet awaken with a bioluminescent glow. Your kayak glides as if flying, opening your senses in the silence, inviting you to connect deeply with the mysteries and wonders of nature.

Moon Notice: Moonlight effects this tour and how brightly you will see bioluminescence.  The less moonlight, the brighter the bioluminescent sea creatures appear.

Into the Night Kayak Tour includes: Sea kayak, paddle, safety gear, and dry land instruction

Schedule: Tour departs nightly (May 20th – September 30th). The evening tour starts at the “in between time “which represents the transition of day and night – exact time will be confirmed based on your booking date.

TESTIMONIAL

Airlea – July 2021

Bioluminescence Kayak Tour was Mindblowing!

Greg was an amazing host. You get a lesson before you head out onto the water. I had never been kayaking before and I felt completely comfortable with what we learned as well as getting out onto the water. What was to follow was simply mind blowing.

We kayaked into the sunset while listening to Greg speak about the local history as well as the local bio-system. We had a clear night and the stars were out in abundance. He was always checking to make sure he had all of us in our group.

I’ve never experienced bioluminescence before and it’s hard to put into words. We kayaked to spots where you’d stick your hand in the water and trailing glitter would follow in its wake. Seeing the paddle in the water was hypnotizing. The best was seeing the fish deep down. During this, Greg was providing his knowledge. We went to try to get to see the seals to come under us but I didn’t get to see one go under the kayak–apparently they look like ghosts.

At one point he told us to just sit and take it all in. We sat in darkness, blanketed by stars and the calm of the water. I really felt connected to nature and everything he had been saying. We all got to see a shooting star that exploded and made a boom upon impact in the atmosphere. It was simply magical.

I would go every night if I could. It was the best way to kick off our get-away!

Greg, thank you for your kindness, knowledge and making us feel welcomed–not only with you, but with the area we were in. I really felt connected to everything.

Reviews from Airbnb Experiences

"We both highly recommend this experience!"
My boyfriend and I chose this adventure to celebrate our anniversary and it couldn’t have been more perfect. Greg was so great and had a lot of in depth knowledge about the area and the ocean. There was a wonderfully unexpected spiritual component to the tour where we were able to really connect with nature and each other. We both highly recommend this experience!

 "I cannot recommend this experience highly enough."
To all reading this: Our Bioluminescent tour with Greg was an absolute once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is NOT TO BE MISSED and words simply cannot do it justice. When my girlfriend Kristina and I met up with Greg on the first night of our vacation (after a very long day of travel), we were not even close to prepared for what Greg had in store for us. The next two hours were filled with child-like wonder and giddiness. You will hardly believe your eyes! Nature is truly incredible! Greg was a wonderful guide. He was so knowledgeable about the science behind the bioluminescence and had a really wonderful perspective on the power of nature and how its life force runs through us all, connecting everything. His company name - Metta Eco-Experiences - is very appropriate for the vibe. We absolutely loved it. I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. Again, this is a once in a lifetime experience (like seeing the Northern Lights or skydiving!). Trust me, JUST DO IT.

"We loved it & didn’t want to come back into shore."
Greg made us feel very safe & comfortable kayaking in the late night. He was extremely knowledgeable about nature & it’s involvement in the eco system. It was very magical & educational as well. One of a kind experience. Will be telling others to experience it. We loved it & didn’t want to come back into shore. It is a must do for anyone visiting Egmont! Thanks so much Greg!!

"Magical experience. Would definitely recommend for anybody in the area! Stars above and below!"

"This kayaking tour with Greg was absolutely amazing!"
From the get-go, Greg was incredibly friendly and shared a wealth of knowledge with us (whether it was regarding kayaking, the location, nature or wildlife itself). He made us feel incredibly comfortable on the water and we got to see some great bioluminescence. Magical was the only word we could use to describe the experience. There was also a full moon the night we went and paddling in the moonlight was beautiful. Greg was an expert in bringing us to spots with less light to see the bioluminescence.

The tour was a very special experience not only for the beauty of the area but also Greg and his partner were amazing hosts that made the trip once in a lifetime.

Magical experience! It was a beautiful night. The rain actually helped and we saw the ocean floor sparkling. Very thankful I was able to Experience it. A huge thanks to Greg and his team for making it happen!
~Jasmine, Airbnb Experiences
We couldn't have imagined what an amazing experience this kayak tour would be. From the kind and gracious hosts, to great equipment, easy to understand lessons on using the kayak and then the actual bioluminescence absolutely blowing our minds. We would 100% recommend this tour as a truly once in a lifetime experience, Greg has knowledge of a huge amount related to nature, animals and our connection to them. We felt safe and knew we were in great hands the entire journey. Cannot wait to come again
~Jocelyn, Airbnb Experiences
Magical evening after dinner in Egmont! You don't get to do this every where. Greg made us feel comfortable and confident about our skills in the kayak. Was very knowledgeable about the history of the land and everything around him. Made us connect with nature on a different level which you don't get from any other tours. Was able to see magic happen in the waters. Must do activity when visiting sunshine coast and worth the drive up to Egmont
~Jonathan, Airbnb Experiences
A wonderful experience. Kayaking at night is already pretty magical, but with the bioluminescent waters, it’s absolutely dreamy! Greg gives a good kayaking base for beginners so it’s really an activity you can do without any prior experience.
~Claire, Airbnb Experiences
Beautiful tour, weather was perfect and full moon sky was special. Great safe, fun activity. The bioluminescence was really magical.
