The road ends at Woodlands, a small settlement with the last northern public access dock to Indian Arm Inlet.

At all times you are accompanied by trained guides who interpret the wild life around you and ensure your comfort.
Glacial fjords have unique characteristics. Visually they resemble the beauty and calm of mountain lakes. However, they are connected to the Pacific Ocean and contain a similar diversity of marine life. The rocky shores are covered with barnacles, mussels, anemones, sea stars and crabs, as well as various types of seaweed. The most common sea mammal here is the harbour seal. Their heads often pop up above the water and their curious large eyes follow your every movement.
Exposed by extremely low tidal drops, the shores attract a myriad of water birds and eagles at different times of the year. During the winter months Indian Arm is home to migrating ducks, loons, grebes, and other diving birds. Your lunch destination is a small, uninhabited island with great views of the inlet. Refresh yourself with a tasty 3-course picnic lunch that includes freshly grilled salmon. After lunch there is some time for a swim on a hot day, a walk through the woods or just nap in the sun before you return to the city rejuvenated, invigorated and recharged.
This is easily one of the best Vancouver kayaking adventures the city has to offer.
