May - Oct
6 hour $145
This is our highlight day trip for adventure and beauty. Leaving Lund, we paddle for about an hour to the Copeland Islands. These islands are magical in their views, sandy beaches and wild trees including the unique Arbutus. A gourmet lunch including seasonal and local ingredients with hot and cold drinks will be provided for the full day out.
We are excited to celebrate the LGBTQ2S community during Pride Month in June and Vancouver Pride Week in late July and early August! We will be running day trips to bring the community together in an outdoor setting. Please join us for one of our dates to connect in nature with great people. See also our Broken Group Island Journey if you are interested in a a multi day. We are offering two LGBTQ2S specific dates there. Bringing people together with commonalities and like stories is a big part of the Wild Root Journey. We believe in creating memorable trips that have depth, and offer more than just an escape into nature, but rather a return to nature, return to yourself and return to community.
Where We Paddle
The Copeland Islands Journey will include a 30-45 minute kayak orientation followed by 1.5-2 hours on the water. We will find a beach to lunch on and relax for about an hour. The return paddle will also be about 2 hours. The route and times may vary depending on weather and group dynamics and we always balance paddling with stopping to take in the scenery.
When & Where We Meet
We will meet at the waterfront in Lund near the grocery store. Public washrooms are a 2-minute walk away. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time as a trip form and/or waiver will need to be filled out. If you are under 18, an adult will need to sign on your behalf. Map
What is Included
- A Certified Guide
- All Kayak and Safety Gear
- Paddle Jacket for Wet Days
- A Dry Bag to Store Layers and Camera.
- Gourmet Lunch if listed in description
What to Bring
- Shoes that can get wet and most importantly have grip. They need to have ankle support. I recommend runners, water shoes, Keen or Croc sandals. Closed toed shoes help against stubbing toes on rocks.
- Shorts or pants that dry quickly when wet.
- 2 shirts so you can adjust your layers depending on the weather.
- 1 light sweater
- A wool hat for cold days.
- Gloves for those who easily get cold fingers.
- Face mask
No cotton/jeans. They become heavy and cold when wet. Synthetic clothing such as fleece or polyester is a better option. These will warm with your body if wet.
Other items include:
- A hat or sunglasses for sun protection
- 1 litre of water and snack
- Personal medications
- Waterproof camera if possible, otherwise we have dry bags which will keep the camera dry
