Adventure for a cause…an epic 12 km paddle along the spectacular Finlayson Arm fjord, replete with soaring eagles, curious seals, mist shrouded vistas and the camaraderie of like minded adventurers. The daylong expedition sets off in the morning at the Pacifica Paddle Sports Brentwood Bay location. Timing the tides we make our way through Squally Reach into Finlayson Arm where we spend the day paddling through the glacial carved fjord, cedars towering above us, deep clear waters below. Our pace will be leisurely as we don’t want to rush the beauty and tranquility of this unique Stand Up Paddleboarding experience. It will make you feel worlds away from the bustle of Victoria. Our journey ends in the heart of Goldstream Provincial Park at Mary’s Farm & Sanctuary, a tranquil equine therapy facility, that sees few visitors from the water. Here we will feast on a well earned evening BBQ before heading back to Brentwood Bay. Memories will be made on this trip.
NOTE: A portion of proceeds will be donated to Mary’s Farm & Sanctuary.
