God’s Pocket, BRITISH COLUMBIA — Sea Kayak Adventures, Inc. has found the perfect venue for multi-generational soft adventure tours – exclusive, wilderness lodge-based sea kayak trips, designed for those who wish to experience Canada’s legendary Inside Passage in comfort and style, at God’s Pocket Resort, in God’s Pocket Provincial Park – Canada’s newest park. The company announces a new “Families with Teens” itinerary there July 18-23, 2011 suitable for teens 13 and older who are at least 5 feet tall (other June-July dates available as well) – teens age 14-17 get 10% off. Parents and grandparents loved being pampered while teens play!
If you and your family want to try kayak touring but have no desire to camp out, you’ll find God’s Pocket Resort’s quaint accommodations appealing. You will stay in a private room complete with ensuite bathroom at a rustic 7-room lodge, located on a remote uninhabited island in the heart of God’s Pocket Provincial Park just off the northern tip of Vancouver Island. From Port Hardy, a boat takes us there on an unforgettable cruise through breathtaking scenes of rugged mountains, forested islands, and the pristine waters of Queen Charlotte Strait. Sea Kayak Adventures has exclusive use of this, the only lodge in the park.
Daily excursions take you into the intricate network of waterways surrounding the many islands that make up the park. Jacques Cousteau rated this park as the world’s best cold water dive site. From a kayak you will have the opportunity to see this diverse marine life, whales, sea otters, porpoises, seals, sea lions and bald eagles frolicking in their natural habitat. Hiking trails take you into the island’s lush rainforest. This area is also famous for its diving and fishing. Our energetic guides will entertain and teach your teens about this unique environment, while making sure the adults have a chance to truly relax and unwind.
After a day of kayaking, hiking, and wildlife watching, you will be back at the lodge to enjoy a hot shower in your room, appetizers on the sun deck, stories of the day and a delicious dinner. The meals are outstanding; featuring locally caught seafood and local wines – prepared fresh daily by the resort’s private chef. Enjoy fresh baked breads, cookies and cinnamon rolls – all baked daily at the lodge. Indulge in the warmth and hospitality of your hosts while you watch the sunset and stars from a spacious deck above the water. If weather is calm a campfire and a night float viewing vivid bioluminescence is the icing on the cake. Enjoy games and nature books and videos in the common room, then sleep blissfully in a comfortable bed.
God’s Pocket is also ideal for simply relaxing. You set the pace; a day off from kayaking is always your choice, and motorboat excursions always an option. People of all experience levels will find this an excellent introduction to sea kayak touring. This is the perfect place for a multi-generational family reunion – we’ve had grandparents, parents and teens together equally enthralled here. The price of the six-day tour is normally just USD $2495/person. Youth age 13-17 receive 10% off on this tour. BOOK BY June 30th for another 10% off for all families.
