Kayaking Around Vancouver Island

I read in the news today that a British Columbia man is having an interesting kayak adventure this summer. Nick Castro will be attempting to break a kayaking record by circumnavigating Vancouver Island in less than 17 days. This would mean that Castro would have to cover at least 80 kilometers each day to reach his goal. Castro plans to start his trip on June 13th from Port Hardy. From Port Hardy, he'll head to the west coast before reaching Victoria and heading back North.

Good Luck!

We have our own ties to a kayaking adventure this summer: we are delighted that Phil and Apryle of the Go Wild Kayak Expedition will be stopping by Sointula to visit us on their way from Seattle to Alaska. I can't wait to see their pictures and hear their stories at our June 6th World Oceans Day Festival. What's more, Phil and Apryle are supporting our salmon farming campaign by helping to spread our message up the coast, and by designating their supporters' donations for the LOS Salmon Farm Campaign.
