Expedition Experience

The Evolution Expedition is a seven-day course designed for prospective certified guides, as well as intermediate kayakers seeking to develop their expedition capabilities.

Participants enjoy daily opportunities to learn from practical experiences while kayaking and camping in this world-renown wilderness destination.

The Evolution course explores a route similar to our Waters of SGang Gwaay tour.  During the course, we paddle offshore to visit the extraordinary ancient Haida village of SGang Gwaay (Ninstints).  Please see the course itinerary.

Each day, numerous challenging and instructive opportunities are facilitated.  Our curriculum is comprehensive and our guide instructors are talented educators.

The wealth of experiential knowledge conveyed and practiced during the course enables each participant to significantly boost their skill level and confidence.
