Your Children Will Love Kayaking With Us!
One of the most popular questions we receive is "can I bring my child?" Our response is always an enthusiastic "of course!" Kit's Kayak Crusade's is a family-run company; our favorite personal pastime is paddling with our own children and we encourage you to bring your kids along on any of our trips! Kids as young as seven years of age are welcome on our day and multi-day kayaking adventures. We assure you that our certified guides will be committed to their safety. Whether spotting whales in Johnstone Strait or paddling the Sea Wall around Stanley Park, the enthusiasm of children is always electric and we invite them aboard for every trip.
Experiences we recommend for children and teens...
Helping kids find their stroke in a kayak
Children and teens have joined us on day and multi-day trips through the many magnificent waterways of Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and the lower mainland. While young adults or teenagers are often encouraged to paddle their own boats; we also offer our guides to chauffer kids who prefer to just enjoy the ride. Our fleet includes several double kayaks that allow you to either paddle for and with your young children or allows for your child to ride with one of our wilderness safety certified guides.

Bring the whole family on one of our multi-day camping and kayak trips
A week in the outdoors with your family can be a fantastic bonding experience. On one of our multi-day kayaking trips, you will be without the distractions of work, school and television and you will be able to focus on the most important thing, your family. Our trips are healthy celebrations of the B.C. wilderness and your kids are bound to learn a thing or two. Seeing an orca come up for air or walking through the cedars of an ancient temperate rainforest will provide hands on learning for your children about the wonderful ecosystems in the places we paddle.
Leave your children with us for the afternoon. They will love it
If you can't make it away from work but want your children to have an education, fun, outdoor adventure; then consider sending them on a fun educational day trip with our certified guides. Our guides will give your children a lesson covering how to kayak and kayaking safery before taking them for their own paddling adventure. Our guides are knowledgeable about all the local vegetation and marine life and will enthusiastically share with your children.
