Kayaking the Broken Group Islands
What a wonderful way to end summer, on a Blue Planet Kayaking adventure. This was my second trip with James Bray's cool paddle company -- I went on the first one two years ago, a three-day kayaking/camping trip in the Gulf Islands.
Not only is James both knowledgeable and a fun leader, he's a terrific chef. All the meals are created with local ingredients from Vancouver Island and environs. Warning: This is not your standard camp cuisine!
There were eight of us on the Broken Group trip, four from Whidbey Island in the US and four from Prince George, BC. Plus James and JF, our two guides. We paddled 43 miles in four days, off the west side (the "wild" side) of Vancouver Island. Make sure to spend time in Tofino, either coming or going -- or both. It's a fun little town.
We're already planning another trip for next summer. To see another video of a morning paddle, click here.
