Dam Good Trips was founded with one purpose in mind: to give you outstanding guidance, without the guide. We make it easy for you to get out and have adventures in British Columbia. You love the outdoors, you're independent, capable and are looking for a new kind of flexibility and freedom that doesn't include group tours and one-size fits all packages.

We build a trip specifically for you based on your experience level and expectations. We enable you to conduct trips on your own, with a sound plan, local knowledge and comprehensive provisioning of essential gear. We build the convenience of a guided trip into your personalized self-guided experience. All you have to do is show up, enjoy and create incredible memories.

We had a fantasic kayaking trip organised by Christina at Dam Good Trips. 2 days on the water and a great spot camping. Christina organised so much for us and was a delight to plan with. The kayak place Dam Good Trips suggestes on Bowen Island was great and they were really informative and knew all the good and hidden... More

We had a memorable vacation thanks to Christina. As we didn't know at all the Vancouver area, she gave us a very detailed description of where we could spend our days based on our experience with the kayaks and what we were looking for. We could choose among three different areas. The choice was not easy. All of them were... More

Christina at DGT set my boyfriend and I up with an awesome adventure off of Vancouver Island! She saved us such a headache trying to find the right area for our kayak/camping trip and made our reservations at great local spots that we would have never found otherwise. She was totally committed to putting together a trip that suited our... More

In August we booked a two week kayaking trip in Desolation Sound with the help of Christina. The way she helped us was perfect. She has so much experience and that helped us to specify our trip to our wishes. We had an incredible time in a beautiful part of BC. Everyday I am still thinking about the great nature,... More

We were this close to booking a tour when we stumbled upon Damn Good Trips and their tailored, independent kayaking offering. Christina took the time to really understand what we were looking for and designed a trip that blew our expectations out of the water. Christina has excellent knowledge of the area and kayaking and gave us flexibility in our... More

Thanks to Dam Good Trips, we had an amazing 4-day adventure in the Southern Gulf Islands. We arrived in Victoria late in the afternoon and, with Christina's meal plan in hand, walked to the grocery store to pick up everything we'd need to keep us fed during the trip. Early the next morning we caught a bus from downtown Victoria... More

Christina put together a great trip for us and made it so easy. We emailed with her about what we wanted to do and she organized everything. We just had to show up and everything was reserved and ready for us. She even met us at the hotel to talk through the trip plan before we went out!

Thanks to Dam Good Trips, we find out about Desolation Sound, a truly amazing place!! Since we live on the East Coast, it would have been difficult to coordinate this trip and know where to go without Christina's guidance. She gave us great tips and planned the whole thing. We just had to show up, follow the instructions, and have... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
