DEVILS HOLE RAPIDS, FASTEST TIDAL RAPIDS IN THE WORLD...

This is Devils Hole. New moons produce the biggest tides and currents!

13 knots, thats 24km/hr!

These tidal rapid off Campbell River & Quadra Island are scattered throughout the Discovery Islands. In fact, we have two of the fastest tidal rapids in the world here! The Arran Rapids in the Discovery Islands and Nakwakto Rapids (Turrent Rock), North of Port Hardy on the mainland. 

Life in the Discovery Islands is determined by the ebb & flood tides and most often influences our decisions while guiding. Whether you’re a Biggs killer whale, guide, or a tug boat captain towing a barge, navigating the tides & currents is a part of life here. Lucky for us, we can traverse these natural phenomenons (safely) at the maximum flow with our high powered zodiacs. Experts only!
