Where are we going today?

There are SO many amazing experiences to be had in British Columbia, but one of those is getting out onto the water and seeing the province from a whole other angle! That's where Jim's Kayaking comes in!

Jim's Kayaking offer tours and excursions, which depart from Gabriola Island, and take you on single or multi-day trips around the Gulf Islands of BC.

And the best part? You don't need any experience! You can enjoy a guided day trip, or perhaps a pretty sunset paddle.

Are you exited to hear all of the tours that you can enjoy with Jim's Kayaking? How about the Wildflower Tour, where during springtime you can check out the birds, and wildflowers, all on Gabriola Island.

If you're lucky you might spot some amazing wildlife too - from seals, sea lions, and even Orca!

Then there's the Sunset Paddle, where the warm evenings will give families an experience to rememeber as the sun dips down and the stars come out! 

How about a trip about Gabriola's Flat Top Islands, where you can explore protected coves, and sandy beaches, and even some pretty amazing sandstone formations.

Don't forget your camera because there is wildlife waiting to be spotted here too! Make sure you look up as eagles might make an appearance!

With custom tours too, there's no reason to not check out Jim's Kayaking if you want an adventure to be remembered!

    Beautiful atmosphere. Very clean beds and bathrooms and has a nice firepit. Great for flyfishing because you walk right out the front door and there is the AuSable river. Only about 20 minutes from town. I would stay there again.
