We are excited to offer a new series of self-drive birding tours.  These are designed to provide an opportunity to get out birding while COVID-19 is still with us.  We want these tours to be as safe as possible.

Key safety features of these tours are:

Travel in your personal vehicle

  • Masks are required when required by provincial guidelines (indoor public spaces)
  • You will have the option to do take-out for lunch and dinner and dine on your own
  • No group gathering in the evening to review the birdlist
  • You still get an expert guide and a chance to do some superb birding. 

We are initially offering a series of birding tours in British Columbia but may expand our offerings to other locations if there is sufficient interest.

To make these tours run as smoothly as possible, we have developed an app that will include a full itinerary for the tour plus allow you to get driving directions to each stop on the tour right on your smartphone.  This means you don’t have to convoy with the car ahead of you, and you can stop along the way to get gas, etc. 

Are you interested in a custom tour in BC with your bubble?  Reach out to us and we’ll talk. 

If you are unwilling to wear a mask during group gatherings or think the threat of COVID-19 is overblown, these are not the tours for you.

Please note that we will only run these tours if the BC guideline to avoid non-essential travel has been lifted.
