If you want to try kayaking in British Columbia but will do anything to avoid camping out, the quaint 7-room lodge called God’s Pocket Resort appeals. Envision: private rooms-with-bath on a remote uninhabited island in the heart of God’s Pocket Provincial Park just off the northern tip of Vancouver Island. Take off by boat from Port Hardy and glide gently past rugged mountains and forested islands on the pristine waters of Queen Charlotte Strait.
Sea Kayak Adventures has recently made available an exclusive wilderness adventure right in this heavenly spot. Daily excursions take you into the intricate network of waterways surrounding the many islands that make up the Park. If you are willing to paddle yourself in a kayak, enjoy front-row center seats to watch awesome humpback and fin whales, sea otters, porpoises, seals, sea lions and bald eagles. Hiking trails lead you into the island’s lush rainforest.
Lovely meals prepared from locally grown organic produce, fresh seafood, and fresh baked wholegrain breads, and desserts are served around the communal table. Then sunset and stargazing fireside from their spacious floating deck, followed by a blissful sleep in a comfy bed in absolute quiet … fantastically rejuvenating.
These special 5-day God’s Pocket pickers take off every Monday from Vancouver Island – June 21 through July 30, 2011 and prices begin at $2295 per person.
