Thurlow Islands Hiking and Beachcombing Tour

Join us as we embark on foot into the pristine temperate rainforest that surrounds Blind Channel Resort. Some of the trees in this forest have been standing for close to 1000 years, and being in their presence can be awe-inspiring and deeply calming. Along the way, our guides will enrich your experience by sharing their intimate knowledge of the ecological and industrial history of the area.

After your hike, you’ll enjoy a leisurely lunch on the seaside patio before heading out on the water.

For avid hikers, there is another trail to the historic gold mine at Shoal Bay on neighboring East Thurlow Island. The vistas from this trail are truly breathtaking, and the history is remarkable. On the way down, you’ll stop for refreshments at a charming seaside pub (kid friendly) overlooking the harbour and majestic Phillips Arm beyond. A fairly high level of fitness is required for this activity.

Otherwise, we can explore some of the countless islands and beaches from our comfortable, high speed landing craft. You will have the opportunity to travel through some of our local tidal rapids and view ancient First Nations pictographs.

We had a wonderful week in this incredible place. We saw orcas, dalls porpoise, dolphins, and a bear. Awesome! We so enjoyed the helpful and friendly staff, too. We look forward to coming back.
