What to Expect
You’ll find yourself racing past forest and Arbutus Trees, exploring inlets and waterfalls, and viewing seals at play, and perhaps dolphins and Orcas if they happen to be visiting. Points of interest are Kunichin Point and Halfway Island, a harbour seal haulout, normally complemented by majestic bald eagles soaring overhead. We’ll cruise down Salmon Inlet to see waterfalls. The Zodiac is fast but safe. The fiberglass hull designs with inflatable tubes makes it comfortable in both calm and rough waters. The vessel is equipped with a VHF radio, navigation system, cell phone and Coast Guard approved PFD;s. Just relax and enjoy the ride!

We’ve just returned from a zodiac tour to Tzoonie River…Amazing! Water so clear and green with 100 Meter mountains all around. Then finished the paddle cooking smookies over the campfire. Check our facebook page for more photos.
