Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival on Quadra Island
Today, you’ll travel to Campbell River, where you’ll take a short ferry ride over to Quadra Island. Quadra is a charming island, with a nature reserve just waiting to be explored. If you’re active, then there’s plenty on offer for you! Walk along the coast or through the woods, and enjoy the countryside. Quadra is also known for its rocks, islands and sea animals, so head out and delve into the great wilderness.
Spend the day exploring the nature reserve before embarking on a special excursion this evening; sea kayaking at sunset. You’ll get a beginners lesson in kayaking and just before sunset set sail (under supervision) to small rock islands. This is a great spot for observing sea lions, as they’re often here lying on their backs, enjoying the last rays of sun.

You’ll board a comfortable vessel and journey down the Orford River for an exciting full day adventure of Grizzly Bear spotting.
