Sealegs' dream was realized when Bud was diving in the Haida Gwaii Islands. He observed a group of kayakers paddling by him and was inspired! Having scuba dived all along BC's coastline and having explored many small towns, he knew Ladysmith Harbour would be the ideal place for paddling with its calm waters, abundance of wildlife and its proximity to the Gulf Islands. Bud's career in Forestry Management and Commercial Diving and Sheryll's career in Recreation have been perfect backgrounds to form this exciting recreational and educational venture. The Bells and their four girls have lived and worked in Ladysmith for the past 21 years. They have offered sea kayak tours, lessons, sales and rentals from Transfer Beach, Ladysmith since 1997. They have since expanded and now offer Gourmet Adventures, Stand-up Paddle Boarding and a Snorkel with the Seals tour.
