Into the Night Kayak Journey
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 life source of our planet and the gifts of the unseen world of our nature.
Moon Notice: Moonlight effects this tour and how brightly you will see bioluminescence. The less moonlight, the brighter the bioluminescence. (On full moon nights we can travel to bays were the moonlight is less intense}
Into the Night Kayak Tour includes: Double Sea kayak, paddle, safety gear, and dry land instruction
Schedule: Tour departs nightly (May 5 – 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.

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.
