Kayak along the beautiful coastline of Kloiya Bay, where the waters are typically calm and the wildlife plentiful.

It's a short transfer from the ship to Kloiya Bay, located in Morse Basin, a picturesque coastal area sheltered from the wind and protected from ocean swells. The waters here tend to be almost lake-like, attracting kayakers of all skill levels. Despite being close to Prince Rupert, the area feels quite remote. In fact, in the native Tsimshian language, "kloiya" means an "out of the way place."

Following a safety briefing and instructions about your kayak and equipment, you'll hop in and start paddling through the pristine, placid waters. Kayaking may well be the most intimate means of experiencing the wilderness firsthand and as they are easy to maneuver, you can paddle wherever you wish.

A temperate rainforest here blankets much of the countryside and in many cases stretches to the shore. While you are paddling, be sure to scan the water's surface for frolicking seals and other marine life. A variety of sea birds also live throughout the bay, as do majestic bald eagles. These raptors have become icons of British Columbia, and you may spot their large stick nests atop the trees.

After approximately 2-hours on the water, you will follow your guide back to the beach where you will return your gear and join your van for the return ride back to the ship.
