Departing from our outpost at the Oak Bay Marina, paddlers will explore the nooks and crannies of Oak Bay’s historic coastline. Legendary Jimmy Chicken Island and the nearby islets are ideal for viewing resident harbour seals, river otters can be seen scurrying up the rocky outcrops of Cattle Point, and the Chain Islands in the Oak Bay Ecological Reserve are home to nesting seabirds such as cormorants, oyster catchers, glaucous–winged gulls, and even rhinoceros auklets. Accompanied by vistas of the Gulf Islands, Mt. Baker and the Olympic Mountains – cast in hues of pink and purple during the evening hours – this is an ideal West Coast kayaking location.
