Company Background

Welcome to BC’s wildly beautiful Sunshine Coast

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 passionately guided day- and multi-day Sea Kayak Tours and professionally instructed Paddle Canada Courses.

Personal approach • Small groups • Local knowledge • Professional touch

We are located in the Powell River / Lund area on the northern end of 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 unique experience you won’t soon forget. Do you have a request you didn’t find on our website? Don’t hesitate to drop us a line.

Explore • See • Feel • Smell
Taste • Listen • Learn

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 offer 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.
