8:10am: Pick-up and departure for Oak Bay from our Downtown location.
8:45am: Arrive at Oak Bay Beach Hotel, meet the guides, and board our Discovery Shuttle (with our kayaks on-board).
Stopping at locations along the way, we'll watch for activity in the seabird 'feeding frenzies' in the ecological reserve waters.
After unloading the kayaks and equipment from the shuttle, the guides will assist everyone in properly fitting their kayaks. The scenic vistas of the Olympic Mountains are our backdrop, as we explore the rugged and wild island from our kayaks. Watch for seals, sea lions, eagles and other wildlife; this intertidal area is home to many Northwest Pacific creatures. Navigating the tranquil waters and approaching Chatham Islands, the pace is easy and relaxed. The perfect gateway to nature.
After deciding upon the best beach for lunch (determined by the conditions that day), we will enjoy a delicious shore lunch.
After lunch, we will secure the kayaks and turn inland to explore the island on foot. Discovery Island's inviting forest, with tall west coast trees swaying overhead, surrounds us as we follow the trail to the historic lighthouse. Majestic views of the strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands present excellent photo opportunities.
Upon returning from our hike, we will be met by the Discovery Shuttle for the crossing back to Oak Bay. We continue our shallow water explorations through the Chain Islands on the return voyage.
3:30pm: End of tour and arrival back at Oak Bay Beach Hotel
