Sea Kayak Rentals


For groups of four or more and folks who have some previous kayaking experience, we offer kayak rentals to a variety of beautiful and secluded campsites in the Deer Islands.

The variety of undeveloped campsites rivals the nearby busier Broken Islands in both natural beauty and protection, without the crowds.

No need to transport or pack any kayaks as they will be delivered directly to your isolated campsite on crown land or native site (with prior permission).

Instead of cramming kayaks with tents and sleeping bags, etc. for an island-to-island camping trip, you may choose to spend your entire stay on one site. With the assistance of our water taxi service, your campsite can come complete with all your car camping type of luxuries and fresh food (coolers recommended).

World - class salmon fishing exists in the Deer Islands (many areas of the Broken Islands are closed to fishing). Many unique abandoned native village sites and features also abound in the area, including a World Heritage Site near "Execution Rock", which you can observe from your kayak. Have you heard the legend of this famous site?
