The latest podcast at SeaKayakPodcasts.com should come with a warning.
After listening to local paddler Mike Jackson talk about all the great options for sea kayaking around Vancouver Island, you're going to want to book a plane ticket.
Fortunately Mike gives really clear descriptions of the best places to kayak around the island. For any paddlers planning to visit, this is a talking guide-book. For best results, listen at home with Google Maps open in front of you.
I know the west coast of Scotland, where I'm lucky enough to live, is considered 'world class' sea kayaking. Vancouver Island sounds equally as interesting, with the added attractions of regular whale sightings (ours are rather shy) and other wildlife.
Years ago I applied for and received the emigration papers for Canada, even going so far as to tentatively line up a job in Vancouver. How different things could have been. But that's another story, probably best forgotten!
