With the spring sunshine arriving on the west coast, our friends at Ocean River Sports & Adventures wanted to capture the experience of paddling in Victoria's Inner Harbour and around the Salish Sea. So we set out to collect drone aerials and additional on-the-water footage to compliment some shots from their existing video library, and weave it all together with some insight from the tour guides themselves.

As always, the most complicated aspect of our shoots are the aerials using our DJI Inspire 1 drone. With the guidance of both Transport Canada and NavCanada, we were able to identify safe take off and landing locations, along with appropriate windows of time to shoot a group of kayakers padding in both the Selkirk waterway and the Inner Harbour. 

As a bonus, with the help of Ocean River owner Brian Henry and his boat (the Ocean Rose), we were able to capture beautiful shots alongside the paddlers as they navigated between our two aerial locations.

Now we're planning our next project with the Ocean River team - a series of vignettes on their various tours which will begin with a fun day trip to Saturna Island! Stay tuned to our Instagram feed for more behind-the-scenes images!
