Howe Sound Tour

Our Howe Sound tour is our introductory paddle to the stunning Howe Sound Fiord. This is a tour where you will get to experience the amazing marine wildlife that we have right here in Squamish. One of the best times to book this tour for the opportunity to view wildlife is in the spring. During the month of March and April Pacific Herring return to the waters of Howe Sound and not far behind them are Harbour Seals and Stellar and California Sea Lions. The Sea Lions start showing up in April and start to head back out of Howe Sound in early June. Black Bears are also making their way down to the estuary to feed on sedge grass after a long winter. Join us for a paddle on the traditional waters and territory of the Squamish First Nations and to experience the majesty of Atl’kitsem/Howe Sound.

Please contact us for a private booking here.
