Over 20 Years? Guiding Experience For over 20 years (under the leadership of Owner/Operator Larry Roy), Discovery Expeditions has been offering fully serviced sea kayaking expeditions to remote wilderness destinations around Vancouver Island and along the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. Local Knowledge Ensures a Safe and Exciting Trip Our intimate understanding of local waters, weather and wildlife behaviour allow each day?s experience to be spontaneous and exciting. As you relax into this natural environment, we share insights into local wildlife, culture, history, and environmental preservation. Philosophy & Setting We ensure that your kayak trip is safe and enjoyable, and that it becomes a cherished lifetime memory. The breathtaking beauty of the islands, inlets, abundant wildlife and sounds of this area offer you an unparalleled wilderness experience. Exploring this area via kayak allows you to connect with your natural surroundings at a very personal level, enriching your entire experience. We have learned the most effective ways to offer exciting wildlife encounters at an acceptable distance from the animals so as not to change their behaviour. Often, as we remain still and quiet, wildlife will move towards us, affording a closeup encounter that will last in your memory for a lifetime. Safety & Comfort For your security and comfort, we supply safe, easy-to-use equipment. Our experienced guides know the area well, carry emergency communications equipment and are trained in Wilderness First Aid. From the heated cabin in our landing-craft transport boat, to hot showers, sauna, clean composting toilets and sheltered tent platforms at our established basecamp, you are guaranteed a level of comfort not usually possible in such a wilderness setting. Locally Owned and Operated Discovery Expeditions is a locally-owned, Vancouver Island business. We take great pride in supporting other Vancouver Island businesses in small towns along the coast and strive to ensure that our sea kayak tours respect all aspects of the environmental code and the ecosystems we visit. Wilderness Conservation Over the years, we have come to the aid and support of many causes that help the areas we?re operating in to remain a wild and intact ecosystem.

An exceptional 4 days that continually exceeded our expectations for an Eco-friendly semi-remote experience. Glamping on a small island, we were made very comfortable and we were well provided for. Perhaps I could get used to having healthy meals prepared for us in a beautiful environment with activities at our finger tips. Humpback whales passed within meters of our landing and we discovered much more while out kayaking. Enjoyed easy to moderate paddling and taking our time to observe the wildlife. We were rewarded. Thanks Larry and Kory!

Nothing but good things to say about Larry and his crews. I’ve been out on a few trips on my own and one with my family of three and had nothing but good experiences shared by all. My son who was 8 at the time (now 10) is still talking about the great time he had and can’t wait to return. If you appreciate the out doors and what to sit back and enjoy it or dig your paddle in and go, Larry has the experience for you to experience a truly wonderful experience.

Had a great time exploring the islands of BC. Wildlife was amazing; we saw orcas, humpbacks, seals, sea lions, and lots of eagles.
