Hakai Pass Kayak Trip

This kayak trip destination information is excerpted from “Best of the West” in Adventure Kayak magazine. 

Hakai Pass, Central Coast, British Columbia

5 to 10 days

The Hakai region is a paddler’s Shangri-la. For those with the right mindset, Hakai Pass is a secret passage into a mystical island chain where anything is possible. Although the experience of a BC Ferries car deck wet-launch is reason enough to visit Hakai, it is merely the appetizer to the adventure main course to come. Daily encounters with orca, grilled fresh-caught salmon on a driftwood beach fire, sea otters galore and memory-engraving Pacific sunsets are all found in the Hakai, in the heart of the Hieltsuk Nation.
