Founded in 1985, Gulf Island Kayaking is a family owned and operated tour and rental company offering half-day, full-day, and multi-day guided kayak adventures as well as quality kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and bikes for hire out of Montague Harbour Marina on Galiano Island.
As the original kayak outfitter in the Southern Gulf Islands, we expressly chose Galiano Island as our base because of the exceptional beauty of its undeveloped coastline, the abundance of diverse wildlife, and the reliable tranquility of its sheltered waters.
55 minutes away from Vancouver
Beautiful undeveloped Shoreline
Two provincial camping parks and nearby marine parks
Our popular 3 – 6 hr guided tours depart multiple times a day in summer, and are available daily throughout the year, when reserved ahead of time. Enjoy the natural history and wildlife along the shorelines and nearby islands as well as seal rookeries.
Want to experience more of the stunning scenery and wildlife the Gulf Islands have to offer? We can help you plan a 2-7 day self guided combination camping adventure, complete with a guide to take you as far as your first base camp and any additional leg of your journey that you would like..
