Footprint Kayak & Hike Explorations’ owners and operators John Hermsen and Christy Krebber love to share their passion for the Sunshine Coast and its nearly endless outdoor activities. We are specialized in guided day and multi-day Sea Kayak and Hike Tours and also offer a variety of engaging Travel Deals.

We are located in Wildwood, Powell River on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia, a beautiful rural region that offers outdoor pursuits of every type. Whether on land, sea or lake, we can arrange a stay you won’t soon forget. Do you have a request you didn’t see on our website? Don’t hesitate to drop us a line. 

Our main tour areas: Desolation Sound, Okeover Inlet and the Copeland Islands.

We take great care in preparing for all of our tours. We only use high end equipment and as residents and outdoor enthusiasts we know the parks where we execute our tours through and through. Prior to a tour we discuss topics such as dietary preferences and previous experiences. We also provide a Suggested Gear List. This will leave you a clear image of what you may expect from us, but also what we expect from you.

Because of our personal and flexible approach, we are highly capable of customizing almost any of our tours to your personal interests, preferences and skill level. Since we started in 2006 we’ve had indelible outdoor experiences. 

So far, ages varied from 4 years old up to 81 years (!) young. Our tours and lessons are ideal for anyone in a normal physical condition looking for unique experiences matched to their interests and skill level.
