活動內容

We will go over boat safety and onto a course of 30 km to the Skookumchuk Rapids. Learn about deep-sea fishing, crab, prawn and oyster farming. The tour sneaks past unknown places, Northern Divine sturgeon farm, a ghostly island, logging water dumps and local folklore legends such as Bergie the Cougar Lady. Visit an eagles nest then see oyster gold in farmed oysters. Off to a cove of sea stars and sea cucumbers and pass by a seal/sealion colony.

This Transport Canada commercial rated 6 passenger zodiac can take you up close to rock formations, onto the beach to explore waterfalls, and can make diving easier. You will feel safe to explore these sheltered waters of the Sechelt Inlet. There is less current, 50% lower tides and less waves in this protected area

This excursion to the Sechelt Rapids or Skookumchuk Rapids is one of the worlds fastest tidal rapids. You will experience going onto the safe part of the Rapids to feel the whirlpool effects of rushing water and then take a break off to the shoreline to check out the sealife and oyster beds. No Sea Lion feeding

Other things to note
we have 3 sets of binoculars
and wet shoes if you need to use one of the 3 bathrooms along the way.
- we will go slow so not to get too choppy at 20 mph
- free cancellation if raining

Great experience, Bruce took us out & was not only full of information but proud of the area. It was a full 3hrs. Along the shores, we went close to salmon & scallop farms. We stopped at a beach & Bruce helped us pick up about a dozen HUGE oysters that we cooked on grill with dinner. They were BEAUTIFUL! Bruce is very enthusiastic & a pleasure to be with. The actual rapids were just starting to swirl when we got there. We got a real taste of how the rapids get at their peak, while staying safe. Thx Bruce, we appreciate your hospitality & expertise

Bruce was outstanding : friendly, safety-conscious, and very knowledgeable. He showed us the starfish, oyster farms, salmon farms, jelly fish and brought us close to the abundant seals... they were so cute. The boat ride was around 2 hours back and forth and there was no dull moments, everything that we saw during the tour were really great and interesting nature wonders especially the rapids... that was breath taking. It was a unique experience of having an uphill boat ride.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our zodiac adventure up the Sechelt Inlet. As a long time local Bruce has a lot of interesting and valuable knowledge of the area, and he was a great host! Seeing the area by boat was incredible, and being able to feel the tidal waters of the Skookumchuck Rapids was fascinating (we were not there at high tide, but it was still very interesting!). I would highly recommend this tour, a great value!

Bruce was a really fun, easygoing and knowledgable guide and captain. We had a great time boating around, exploring different areas of Sunshine Coast and catching oysters. To make the experience even better, we went for a DIY seafood BBQ lunch on a secluded beach, with plenty seafood, drinks and fruits. It's a must do experience if you're on the coast for a few days. Highly recommend, will surely be back for more!

Thanks Bruce for being such a wonderful host and guide. We were so lucky to have gone on a gorgeous sunny day. The view is spectacular. Bruce toured us around, told us stories and informative details about the town. We then arrived to the Skookumchuck rapid, and witnessed the whirlpool effect. It was a pretty cool phenomenon to experience going uphill on water! Bruce then took us to pick our own oysters, the oysters were gigantic, larger than the palm of my hands! We then were dropped off at a secluded island, where we could BBQ seafood, explore the trails, and kayak! Due to some unforeseen circumstances, we weren't able to BBQ on the island, but thoroughly enjoyed kayaking, exploring trails and soaking in all the beauty that nature has to provide. Bruce came back to pick us up, and we brought a ton of seafood back to our airbnb to BBQ. Oh my, what a fresh seafood feast it was! Thanks Bruce, we'll be back for the bioluminescent night tour next time.

What an amazing experience. Bruces stories about the area as we headed up the inlet, made the trip. We will come back for sure and do another tour. Being on the rapids is so much cooler than just seeing it from land. A must try.
