Reserve a Trip


A $500 per person deposit will hold your space until four months prior to departure.
Last-minute reservations are also welcome.  Deposits are payable in Canadian or American dollars.  Before making a reservation, please read Personal Preparation and familiarize yourself with the terms of the Cancellation Policy.

To make a reservation, first please contact us to confirm space availability.
If space is available, please make a deposit, then email us the name and email address for each person registering.  Please include your selected trip date in the email.

To make a deposit, please see:  Payment Options

Our guided sea kayak trips are not designed to be suitable for everyone.  We provide single kayaks and encourage the process of informed selection that occurs while people decide which tour company to choose.  Those who enjoy our trips the most tend to read our website in detail before making reservations.  Prospective tour guests and expedition participants are welcome to request access to our equipment list before registering, so as to make a more informed decision.

Mothership cruise reservations require a $1000 deposit and are managed by Ocean Light II Adventures.

Confirming Reservations

Upon receiving your deposit, Butterfly Tours will provide you with access to our password-protected online resource.  The resource includes printable files containing the equipment list, medical form, waiver and terms.

To confirm your reservation, the completed medical form, waiver, terms and balance of payment must be received by Butterfly Tours at least four months prior to departure.  (Or, within one week of making a last-minute reservation.)

Please contact us if you are going to miss the due date and would like to request extra time; it may be possible to hold your reservation for up to seven additional days to allow your completed forms to arrive by email, or express postal mail.  (For Sechelt, express postal mail often arrives sooner than couriers.)
For details, please see:  Cancelled Reservations

Last-minute reservations are welcome and require full payment within one week in order to confirm space.  (Reservations made less than four months prior to departure are considered last-minute.)

Payment is accepted by Interac e-Transfer, cheque, money order, bank draft, wire transfer or PayPal.

We cover PayPal's processing fee for the $500 per person deposit.
If you later provide the balance of payment via PayPal, a 5% processing fee is charged.  To avoid the 5% fee, please provide your balance of payment by cheque, money order, bank draft, wire transfer or Interac.  If you would like to pay the balance by PayPal, please contact us to request an invoice.
There is no additional fee for the $500 per person deposit.  The 5% fee is charged only if you later provide balance of payment via PayPal.

Balance of payment must be provided in the same currency as the deposit.

Different conditions apply to our seat sale and group discounts.


Since numerous arrangements and commitments are made immediately upon receiving a reservation, we adhere to the following cancellation policy.  Please consider cancellation insurance.

On the Dates & Prices page, trips marked with an asterisk are confirmed departures.  Most trips require only two people in order to become confirmed.

In the unlikely event that we must cancel a trip, you will have the choice of a free transfer to another trip, or a full refund of your payment to Butterfly Tours.

Before making a reservation, please familiarize yourself with the terms for cancellations, transfers & payments.

Balance of payment must be provided in the same currency as the deposit.

You are welcome to contact Gord if you have any questions.
