Deal of the Week: Save on Sea Kayaking British Columbia
God’s Pocket Marine Provincial Park in British Columbia was determined one of the best cold-water diving areas in the world by none other than the late Jacques Cousteau. This was due to its abundance of marine wildlife. However, cold water and challenging dive conditions sometimes discourage all but the most seasoned divers. Luckily, the park can also be enjoyed from the surface on summer kayaking trips.
Sea Kayak Adventures Inc is offering 20 percent off its lodge-based sea kayaking tours in the pristine waters around the numerous islands and islets that make up the park. Each five-day trip includes introductory kayak lessons and guided trips to the famous Browning Wall to observe both verterbrate (orcas, seals, dolphins, otters) and invertebrate (anemones, urchins, sponges soft corals) sea life. Or take a day off from paddling to enjoy the hiking trails in Hurst Island's temperate rain forests.
And, as long as you book in the month of June, you get five days of all-inclusive fun for $1,516. Although the park is largely undeveloped, staying in one of the seven rooms in God's Pocket Resort, which offers ocean views along with all the amenities, will ensure that you feel far from roughing it.
