Corilair Charters and Destiny River Adventures have partnered to treat our guests to an amazing combination of flight seeing, scenic river rafting, food, and experiencing the lifestyle of locals who live "off the grid" at two remote coastal locations. Choose a morning departure starting with the river tour - or a noon departure that starts with your flight. The tour combination is approximately 6 1/2 hours from start to finish.
Experience the latest addition to BC's Heritage Rivers by floating the Campbell River. Explore the canyon before running the fun splashy section past the island. Float past Roderick Haig-Brown's Heritage House looking for salmon, eagles, kingfishers, seals and other wildlife to the river estuary.
From late July to October rafters can also snorkel with the salmon. The crystal clear water allows rafters to view salmon in their natural environment - or get into the river pools teeming with thousands of salmon. All five species of Pacific salmon can be found over the course of the fall run, starting with pinks in late July and finishing with chum in October.
This is an easy trip suitable for almost everyone, with past participants ranging in age from 5 to 95 years old. A great introduction to rafting with the option of paddling or just sightseeing and going for the ride!
The river tour finishes at the Corilair floatplane terminal. After experiencing the beauty and diversity of the river there's time to change before heading out on the aerial adventure.
Your journey off the path begins with a super scenic floatplane flight to the settlement of Refuge Cove, which borders Desolation Sound. Completely off the grid (no public access via ferries, roads or public utilities), Refuge offers our guests the unique experience of a visit at a remote community rich in history from the pioneering days of the coast. After a pause to soak up the local ambiance of this truly unique lifestyle, our aerial tour continues as we traverse Teakerne Arm (making sure everyone takes in the picturesque Teakerne Falls) enroute to a wilderness lodge for the chance to meet and eat with the locals, taste some fresh locally prepared foods and further experience the remote coastal lifestyle. The local hospitality and history, is enhanced by the final leg of our journey through the Discovery Islands back to beautiful downtown Campbell River, where our journey cumulates, with wonderful memories of rivers, rafts, wildlife, wilderness, pioneers, history, floatplanes and great local cuisine.
