Island campsites for kayakers enable overnight expeditions. Bald eagles, sea lions and sea otters watch from the cheap seats.
Sign on for guided, multi-day expeditions through islands and marine parks. D'Arcy Island was a leper colony when the disease arrived in Victoria in 1891. Princess Margaret has three wilderness campsites with toilet facilities and hiking trails.
