We will depart and return from Telegraph Cove.   Because of the small size of the group, we will travel in just one vehicle. We load the night before our departure date.

Sea Kayaking camping experience is required.  Generally we will paddle to a new location each day and set up camp again.  Expect to paddle 10 - 15 nm a day.

Plan on doing a community meal (appetizer, wine, main course and dessert) for dinner.

In addition to the marine park we will go to Johnstone Strait to see the Orca  and will Visit Malcom Island to see the Totem poles.
