Wet Winter On Vancouver Island

In December 2012, Raphaël Boudreault-Simard and Gabriel Côté-Valiquette went kayaking on mysterious Vancouver Island. Rumours of its incredible rivers have been circulating for years but very few images that relate its true potential have been published. Rapha and Gabe documented what they found during their 3 week trip: very little sunshine, lots of rain/snow, some of the best winter kayaking in North America, and a ton of good people. Paddling on Vancouver Island in the winter is not for everyone? but the beauty of the area will make you forget the cold nights.
