Tlell River

Get out onto the water with an expert guide on this two-hour stand up paddle board experience on the enchanting Tll.aal/Tlell River. This experience promises an unforgettable adventure downstream the quiet waters of the Tll.aal/Tlell River, ending with a gourmet meal at a locally renowned restaurant on Haida Gwaii. The most common sounds you will hear will be that of your paddle blade as it eases in and out of the water with each stroke you take, only to be contested by the cries of an eagle or a black bear roaming the river’s edge.



Expect to paddle down the Tll.aal/Tlell River with the outgoing tide alongside your experienced guide.  We’ll discover the peaceful river together from our boards. Your instructor will be there every step of the way both to help you improve your paddling technique and to share information about the surrounding areas, so you really get the most out of your trip.  By the end of this experience you’ll have learnt new skills and paddling techniques.  We have a maximum of six people per instructor, meaning you’ll get the best expert instruction and guidance.
