These days, understanding and acting appropriately to protect the environment is a given for adventure companies. It’s the environment and the local wildlife that let’s us exist in the first place. We take several steps to keep abreast of the best ways to protect our surroundings and respect the wildlife.

We maintain strong relationships with organizations dedicated to wildlife protection including NIMMSA and the Cetus Research and Conservation Society. We also advise First Nations in our region about our trips and have land use permits for the regions in which we operate our trips.

Safety First

Wildcoast guides are selected based on a combination of experience and love the outdoors and dedication to superior customer service. Prior to launching our first trips, Wildcoast holds on water training to prep all staff for the upcoming season.

With the season underway, each day your experienced guides make decisions on kayaking routes having considered tides, weather and ocean conditions, in addition to group needs and the paddling dynamic.

They keep you informed via charts that let you map your progress of each kayaking expedition. While routes are discussed as a group, safety is paramount, therefore guides will ultimately determine the routes during the kayak tour to ensure the route chosen will be the best option.
