About Us

Luke Lessard and Christy Taylor are the owners, operators and guides of Blackfish Adventures Ltd. Together they have 14 years of experience guiding trips in beautiful areas like Johnstone Strait, Broughton Archipelago, Clayoquot Sound and Gulf Islands. The Johnstone Strait and Broughton Archipelago left a bigger imprint on Luke and Christy, which is why they have started Blackfish Adventures ltd in Alert Bay, BC Canada. Christy says, “there have been a lot of perfect days out there on the water, each with their own special moments to make them some of the most memorable times in my life”.

Luke Lessard grew up in Courtenay, BC and spent the majority of his years from a young age outside exploring the woods, rivers, and camping with his family and friends. Luke went to North Island College in Campbell River, BC for tourism and business management. It wasn’t until college that Luke discovered his passion for sea kayaking and started his new adventure into guiding kayak trips. Luke bears the skills and knowledge to produce the best kayak tours for you because of his attention to safety and your needs. He has the ability to capture you with his illuminating talks on wildlife and local culture.
