ECO-TOURS: Discover our coast!


Travel in comfort aboard our safe, fast Transport Canada approved 32 foot Daigle tour boat. Imagine a gourmet lunch in the magic of Desolation Sound, Discovery Islands and Johnstone Strait. You have the opportunity to catch the spirit of the whale (orcas, minkes and grays), listen to the sea lions, frolic with the Pacific white-sided dolphins or see bears on the shore lines. Eagles and other water fowl are plentiful along these coast lines. You may also have the opportunity to see pictographs or petroglyphs, rock paintings and carvings, the physical records left by the aboriginal peoples of the west coast.



We will get you kayaking even if you never have before with our own local guide. The day trips include lessons in paddling skills and safety. For the more experienced kayaker it's the opportunity to see so many of the coast lines treasures up close and personal. The possibilities of seeing seals, dolphins, otters, eagles and other water fowl await you. At the right time of year, Orcas have also been seen, an exhilarating experience! We can arrange to have you rent your kayak without a guide but a good knowledge of the area water and the local tides is essential and recommended.




"Second only to the Red Sea." is how Jacques Cousteau described this area. Steep Island's uniqueness and location make it one of the most spectacular dive sites on the entire coast. Licensed and insured dive masters can provide everything for an exciting and safe dive in Coast Guard approved boats. All the necessary dive equipment can be rented at one of several local dive shops. A valid diver's certification card and prior notice are required.




There are two challenging golf courses within a half hour of Steep Island in Campbell River, a new golf course on Quadra Island and several more south of town. They range from "executive style" to a championship designed par 72 course which is literally carved out of the rain forest and is rated as one of the best in B. C. We will arrange transportation, tee times, car and club rentals, no need to pack your clubs! We can also set up tournaments for a group or company. Where else can you catch salmon in the morning and finish the day with a great round of golf!


The list of "things to see and do " can go on and on, from aerial tours by helicopter or plane, to visiting salmon enhancement sites, Native Museums, and other local places of interest. In the fall a popular event is to snorkel down the Campbell River, as the Salmon are heading up river.

It is an amazing ride!

Don't forget your cameras,

Discovery Passage and

surrounding areas are truly

a photographers dream.
