Over the last few years, I had gone kayaking on multiple occasions and had built up my stamina to finish a triathlon. So I thought it was now a wise idea to pull some friends along and go for some adventure camps in Victoria, probably for a kayaking adventure camp. I found the perfect escape for me at the Sea Kayak Tours in Victoria. There were two types of packages that I could explore:
- The Corner Inlet: This package was a 3-4 day package, which would be conducted over a long weekend, and if we had more than 6 members in our group, we could request our own private dates.
- The East Coast: This was a longer package and usually took a week to complete. We would be kayaking every day and hence would be travelling quite far. Due to this, the agency would arrange a boat for us to make it back to the starting point on the last day.
My friends and I initially didn’t know which package to choose as we weren’t sure of each other’s availability but in the end we opted for the smaller of the two packages. The short version of our experience is that we had an exquisite time kayaking during the day and lounging on sandy beaches during the night. Many people would argue that the night was more fun than the day but I quite preferred the kayaking. The nights were usually just filled with people lounging near the fires and bathing in the warmth that emanated from it, along with a couple of cold beers and some seafood.
As far as the sightseeing was concerned, we were guided through patches of marine coastal parks and we saw so many types of fish and birds along the way. I can now name at least 20 types of fish and bird that I did not knew before. Apart from this, we also had the opportunity to take pictures of the amazing landscapes surrounding us. The melding of the mountains into the sea at the horizons almost seemed poetic to our visual senses, as tears of joy sprung forth unmasking our elation. This was truly one of the best adventure camps in Victoria that I could have visited.
