A Half Day of Paddling Exploration of the Howe Sound Fiord.
If your looking for tour that gives you more time on the water than our Sound Tour then join us for our Fiord Explorer. This adventure is 3.5 hours long which will give you ample opportunity to explore areas like the Squamish Estuary, the lower Squamish River and the stunning west wall.
