  Kayak Crusades Group Trips To Vancouver Island British Columbia and the Sunshine Coast

Group Trip Launch

"Our group were a bunch of old college friends from Berkeley.... what a way to have a reunion. Our group's 'kayak crusade' felt like a swim in the fountain of youth! It was just us, the outdoors and our guides, who took care of everything leaving us without a care in the world."

"I still don't know how you made room for all of us on the trip but I'm glad you did.... it wouldn't have been special without the whole team there. Thanks for being so much fun with the boys. A nice escape from for them from another day on the ice."

Larry Coltine,
Burnaby, British Columbia

Group Trips

These are many and can be varied - please see below for details and packages. KKC operates with fibreglass and kevlar kayaks only.

Learn the skills and fun of kayaking through our instructional adventures.

Benefits of a custom lesson or group clinic:

* Our Guides will tailor your trip to the groups' needs and capabilities

* We can provide instruction as needed

* Our Guides are intimately familiar with areas' tides, currents and routes

* we cater to your needs - making you feel comfortable and confident!

We believe that all of our trips are best suited to those seeking a personal challenge.



We can design a tour for your group or family. Let us know what your needs are and we can work together to create a memorable experience.

We expect that most of our guests on custom group trips are first time paddlers. In fact, it is our past experience that many 'groups' have found this cooperative style learning for the very first time to be a rewarding and exhilerating experience. Such learning fosters congeniality among staff outings and the like.

All one needs to enjoy these lessons / day trips is a positive attitude and a willingness to learn from new exeriences.



Sharpen your skills and raise your confidence, by learning how to eliminate inefficient movement in the basic strokes. The real beauty of this class is that it is available all year round -- we are on the water nearly every weekend throughout the winters.

Learn tequniques such as: braces, hip-flicks, draw strokes, rudder strokes, blending strokes, sweep strokes and capsize rescues. Gain confidence and good technique.

Call us for your custom bookings anytime this winter !

We have a 14 year long photo archive of past group trips coming online very soon that will help you get a peek into the real group trip experience.


Using the progressive learning concepts, in the first two classes learn how to feel confident and comfortable in a deluxe sea kayak. Then put all of this into practice with a three hour guided tour of the sheltered harbour of Deep Cove and Indian Arm.
