Welcome to Dog Mermaid and the majestic Southern Gulf Island of Pender! Since 2011, we have been sharing the sights, sounds and feel of our relaxing island lifestyles, along with teaching guests our passion for the wild. Let us take you on a paddle, hiking or aerial Eco excursion, set you up on a holistic retreat, or balance you with one of our many yoga options. At the same time, sign your kids up for our Eco camp allowing you to escape your every day schedule and immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Salish Sea. And if winter is more of your style, we have many retreats to suit your adventure spirit. From dog sledding to surfing, come enjoy Canada and beyond!
Laugh and learn, making new friends along the way, even with a marine creature or two, and let us take you into the wild…
