God's Pocket Sea Kayaking
British Columbia Canada

Your kayaking and whale watching adventure starts with a stunning boat cruise from Port Hardy BC Canada on northern Vancouver Island past rugged mountains, forested islands, and the wildlife rich waters of Queen Charlotte Strait, before arriving at God's Pocket Resort. The lodge earned its name from the seafaring explorers of ages past. Buffered by barrier islands, a small cove on Hurst Island offered the last sanctuary from stormy seas before the open waters of the Pacific ocean. Sequestered in this sheltered bay, sailors felt as if they were safely tucked away in the protection of God's own pocket. After the lodge emerged, tradition held that sailors taking shelter in the cove could always count on a home-cooked pastry from the lodge's charming caretakers.

Bring this tradition to life during calm summer seas with a kayak exploration of these breathtaking islands. The moment you step onto the dock, you'll appreciate the charm of this quaint island resort, which remains the only building in God's Pocket Provincial Park. Its seven rooms provide comfort, private baths, all the amenities of home and spectacular ocean views. And of course, the lodge's on-site chef will prepare your meals from scratch each day, including an unending supply of baked goods for your kayak voyages.

After an instruction in the basics of sea kayaking, you will spend your days paddling the sheltered waterways surrounding the many islands that make up the park while watching for humpback whales, orca, porpoises, seals, sea lions, sea otters and bald eagles. Paddle by the world-famous Browning Wall at low tide and marvel at the explosion of invertebrate sea life. You'll even enjoy a short cruise to the Millar group of islands, where you'll spend the day paddling a network of tiny islands that host haul-out for sea lions and a hangout for humpback whales.

At the end of the day, you'll return to the resort to enjoy a hot shower in your room and freshly-prepared meals. Watch the sunset and relax by a campfire on a waterside deck, then sleep blissfully in a comfortable bed. If you have a particularly dark night, join your guides to paddle through the ocean's glowing bioluminescence! You can take a day off from this active adventure anytime to relax on the dock with a book, or follow one of the many hiking trails into the island's lush rain forest. Don't forget to greet the resort's resident octopus and river otters in the cove out front!
