Mothership Kayaking with Ocean Light II Adventures

Mothership Kayaking is the latest and greatest choice for those looking for the adventure and challenge of kayaking along with the comfort and decadence of staying aboard a 71-foot sailboat. We travel in style and comfort on the Ocean Light II to new locations and each day you will be given the opportunity to kayak along the spectacular British Columbia coastline - amongst the wild islands and deep into coastal fiords with expert guides. You’ll enjoy delicious home-cooked meals and a warm, dry bed will await you each night.

Ocean Light II Adventures is now set up to run Mothership Kayaking Tours in Gwaii Haanas National Park and in the Northern Great Bear Rainforest.

If you are interested in joining us for a Mothership Trip in the Great Bear Rainforest please let us know and we will try to offer a trip in the next few years.

Mothership Kayaking: Gwaii Haanas National Park

Your week of mothership kayaking aboard the Ocean Light II will give you access by sailboat and by kayak to the best Gwaii Haanas National Park (South Moresby) has to offer - from abandoned Haida villages such as T’anuu and Ninstints, to the magnificent Pacific northwest rain forest, to intriguing natural history displays, such as busy sea lion haul-outs and colourful intertidal areas. Check out our Gwaii Haanas trip page to find out about the attractions of this amazing wilderness park.
