About First Nations Interpretative Kayak Tour ~ Sechelt

Your Talaysay First nations guide will bring you on a paddle journey up and deep into the Sechelt Inlet to enjoy a day of paddling and sightseeing as we navigate by kayak these inlet waters that we locals refer to as our marine highways. While on tour with Talaysay you will witness firsthand the diverse wildlife of this region with countless species of birds, including eagles, cormorants, osprey, merganser, scooter and mallard ducks. Our fish and marine people include herring, the five species of wild salmon, river otter, harbour seals, seal lion and in spring and summer we have been frequently gifted with the visits of porpoise, white sided dolphin, and at times orca and grey whale. As we paddle we scope the shorelines the diverse and eclectic forms of sea life and sea plants. We scan the beaches for black bear, black-tailed deer and the variety of land mammals.  Welcome to the Sunshine Coast.

Talaysay First Nations guides will share with you our ancient and contemporary stories, legends and aboriginal ways of living.   The 5 hour First Nations Paddle is designed for the group who is seeking exploration and a kayak experience that will allow your group to paddle deeper into the Sechelt Inlet, enjoy the vista views and share a gourmet picnic lunch at Piper’s Point.

The Talaysay gourmet lunch includes salmon or chicken, salads, fruit for desert and traditional indigenous chilled ice tea.

The Talaysay team requires a minimum of four paddlers to do this tour.
