Our Style of Travel

The "Butterfly way" refers to our style of travel. It is based in communication, cooperation and the eternal principles of seaworthiness. The Butterfly way evolved during well over a quarter-century of sea kayak tours and expeditions on Haida Gwaii. It is a considerate method of wilderness travel and appropriate conduct, most appreciated by team players.

Your Level Three Guides certified through the Sea Kayak Guide Alliance of British Columbia are talented, life-long professional guide dedicated to facilitating quality sea kayaking experiences with expedition participants and tour guests. Their grounded, insightful approach to wilderness exploration is uniquely adapted to remote marine environments.

Our kayaking trips are designed for participants who are reasonably able-bodied. Dependable reflexes, as well as practical levels of balance, fitness and coordination are necessary, yet there is no need for our guests to be accomplished athletes.
