Explore the Broughton Archipelago

Enjoy a close and personal relationship with the wilderness of British Columbia at Paddler’s Inn.

The Broughton Archipelago is a magical area, and is a kayakers haven, with potential to spend weeks and weeks  exploring its hidden charms. This part of the coast is dotted with hundreds of islands, creating an endless variety of passes and channels in which to explore. It is a place where you’ll definitely want to have your camera handy.

The Broughton Archipelago consists of a maze of islands and inlets that are located at the southern extremity of Queen Charlotte Strait. These waters are home to eagles, blue heron, and a multitude of sea birds, as well as mink, otter, seals, sea lions, porpoises, dolphins, orca, minke, and humpback whales.

Along the shore of this magnificent coastal rainforest you may also view raccoons, deer, wolf, cougars, grizzly and black bear feeding at the water’s edge.

The area is rich in First Nations history. There are many indications of their habitation and use of the area, including pictographs, beaches that are thousands of years old formed from shellfish middens, and camping areas, some of which you can camp at.
