It’s decision-making time. You want an exciting but safe trip that’s a challenge, not a chore. You want the planning and gearing-up to be comprehensive but hassle-free. You have three basic options to launch and enjoy your kayaking or hiking adventure:
Do-it-totally-yourself. Go unguided. Research and plan everything. Provision everything yourself by sourcing, renting and/or buying.
Take a fully guided tour. Go with the pack. Follow your guide. Accept that one size fits all. Keep in line. Stick to their schedule. Be lead everywhere.
Do-it-yourself but be well-advised & well-provisioned, confident and competent with DGL’s custom-made kayak and hiking adventuring service.
And you save money.
We recommend you seriously consider Option #3. Why? Dam Good Logistics is different from other options. We enable you to conduct trips on your own but with both our sound planning advice and our comprehensive provisioning of all the essential gear you will need. We build the convenience of a guided trip into your personalized self-guided experience. It’s that simple.
You are an integral part of the planning and provisioning process but we do the grunt work. Nothing is an off-the-shelf packaged offering. Your trip is a unique, custom-made plan. And we chat (email/Skype/phone) and tweak the plan – doing it together until you feel totally comfortable with it. Then we rendezvous at an ideal launch point to get you on your way.
Bottom line: going our way will probably cost you 30 to 40% less than buying a fully guided tour package. So think of what you can do with the money you save … like spending more days on the water or trail! See our Hiking Sample Packages and Kayaking Sample Packages for trip ideas.
Give it some thought. Explore us further. We are confident you will feel you have come to the right place for your adventures in Vancouver's Big Backyard and beyond.
