Participant Information

Chance to kayak and hike around the world famous Broken Group in Barkley Sound, Vancouver Island. This area is extremely popular, but going in May gives an opportunity to visit and camp on beautiful wilderness islands without the crowds (hopefully!). Sea crossing distances and conditions in the area are considered to be unchallenging, so the area is suitable even for kayakers with minimal experience.

Plan would be to catch ferry to the island and drive probably to Toquart Bay (off the road to Tofino) and launch from there. Will involve best part of a day to drive there and another to drive back, thus allowing 4-5 days of actual paddling and exploring around the islands.

Obviously will be weather-dependent,
