Day Trips & Custom Tours
Day Trips are the ideal tours if you are looking for a day on the water, a lunch at a marina and a visit to a beautiful beach. Our Day Trips will take you around the Southern Gulf Islands to experience their very unique offerings..
Your day will start with a passenger ferry ride across Colburne Passage to reach Piers Island where you will launch from in your brand new coastal scull. After a safety and navigation briefing, you will row to the destination of the day. Our destinations of these trips are open to change because the final route and destination will be determined by weather and water conditions.
While rowing requires synchronization and focus, don’t forget to have a look around as you may spot seals, porpoises, bald eagles or a pod of orcas.
Our Day Trips do not include food or beverages. This gives you the opportunity to either bring your own or you can also plan to have lunch at our destination. We can discuss what you would like to do when you make a reservation.
After rowing back to Piers Island in the afternoon, the passenger ferry will take you back to the “Big Island” where you started your day.
