The first step toward this recognition is Paddle Canada Sea Kayak Level 1 Skills.

The Heart of the Gulf Islands Experience

This expedition will feature the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve (GINPR) as well as lead you to a variety of other must see sites in the Southern Gulf Islands. Through these crystal clear moving waters from the faithful seat of your kayak, you will likely experience everything from sea stars and nudibranchs nestled in colorful seaweed to fascinating topography, not to mention the possible glimpse of our endangered Southern Resident Killer (Orca) Whales! Their 3 pods (J,K,L) can often be seen in search of Chinook Salmon in their Salish Sea.
