Antheia F. asked to post a RAVE review about her 3 night Orca Kayaking trip with Wildcoast Adventures, based out of Campbell River, British Columbia.
- “Celiacs need safe and fun options so that we don’t need to worry about food and can have a real vacation! It can be a lonely road as a celiac, but as a community, we are stronger and can help support each other!”
“I was so nervous before we went because I had no idea what to expect. We had debated doing one of their trips but this was my biggest concern and fear. I am a new celiac still in my first year. I was very anxious about being out there with someone else in charge of all my food intake. I didn’t realize how much I worry about food until I didn’t have to think about it for a few days.”
“I emailed them before to make sure that was ok and they said no problem, went over my concerns about CC once I got to the base camp and they happily took me through the kitchen and their processes.”
“They said they were used to accommodating celiacs and all their dinners are naturally GF. You fill out a medical form before you go where they ask about dietary restrictions, and I noted celiac and DF.”
“When I arrived, the owner of the company greeted us on our way up, saying to not worry, the celiacs were in good hands, all dinners were GF and he had sent up ingredient lists with the guides. They even had a celiac guide on staff! You can tell there was a lot of care and thought put into serving guests so that they could have a worry-free vacation. “
“They already knew to cook my bbq’d stuff in tin foil, separate utensils for my meal prep, packed a loaf of GF bread and GF English muffins for me. All their sauces/dressings/spices are GF and had an ingredient list for every meal available. There was more I couldn’t eat due to being pescatarian and DF.”
“I wish I had taken more pics of the food: Eggs Benny, GF pancakes, quinoa salads, stuffed peppers with rice pilaf, scrambled eggs & fruit. but some example meals were GF make your own When it came time to making our own sandwiches, celiacs got to dish up first to avoid CC. I packed emergency snacks just in case and never needed them.”
“I truly can’t say enough good things about their practices. I ate so well! 😌 One of my best GF dining experiences ever!”
“I had never kayaked before actually. Lots of opportunities for resting and breaks. You get a nice orientation to the kayak as well your first day. Hot tub and warm showers were the cherry on top!”
Do you serve vegetarian, vegan or special diet options?
Yes we provide really excellent alternates for guests requiring a vegan, vegetarian, or other modified menu. These modifications don’t compromise on the quality, freshness, or portion sizing of each meal.
However, please note we are not a peanut or nut-free operation. While we do our best to provide a great menu, if you have severe allergies and/or dietary restrictions our adventures may not be suitable for you due to limitations of the wilderness settings we travel within.
