Victoria Harbour Tour
Sep 2020 • Family
Nick was our guide this week on an extended harbour tour. Because it was just myself and my 18 year old daughter in a tandem we were able to paddle out to Seal Island - what an experience!! Loved loved loved the seals and had time to just sit and admire them from a distance - one even swam under our kayak. Nick was awesome - personable and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this - best thing we did all summer!!

Excellent Customer Service!
Aug 2020 • Couples
Earlier this week we organized two tandem kayak rentals for today. Very windy weather at our departure time resulted in unsafe conditions.
The staff were proactive. A staff member called us and offered us a full refund.
I will definitely support this business in the future.
Organized, efficient and easy to deal with.

We had an amazing afternoon tour of the harbor. Our guide was fun and provided great explanations of the surroundings. We saw some seals, jellyfish and local flora. It was definitely one of the best experiences about our trip to Victoria.

My wife and I were visiting Victoria for an anniversary trip and one of the things we wanted to do was a kayak Harbour tour. We had Emma as our tour guide and we had a fabulous time!! Emma put my wife at ease as she hadn’t kayaked before. It was a beautiful day and we learned so many interesting facts about Canada, trees, and birds in the area. Emma was a wealth of knowledge and so fun to visit with. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the company as they made things so easy and had very nice equipment.

Wonderful Easy Going Kayak Experience
Aug 2019
Enjoyed kayaking for the first time in many years. My husband and 23 year old daughter are more in shape than me...I had fairly recent surgery and was worried about my stamina. But our guide, Emma, was awesome. She knew I wanted a very easy going kayak experience and she was so great. Just completely enjoyed the day with family on the bay. And...we were lucky...had two baby otters come out to visit us...they were so cute surprising us and popping their heads out of the water. This is a great experience in Victoria!

Wonderful guided Kayak tour ... what a vantage point!
Jul 2019 • Friends
Five of us took an evening harbour tour. All of us were "novice" level and the guide managed appropriately to our experience and aspirations.
"Lee" the guide was highly engaging, informative and patient.
We had a solid orientation and a scenic +2 hours in the water. The vantage point of the Harbour complete with sea life such as seals and herons was incredible.
Go for it!!

Harbor tour
Jul 2019 • Solo
The tour was a fun way to see the harbor from a different perspective. The guide was knowledgeable able both Victoria and the marine life. She was easy to talk to making the tour a lot more enjoyable. For a Thursday it was only myself and the guide.

Dear Patrick, Thank you for taking the time to review your tour with us - we sincerely appreciate it. Having a private tour is certainly uncommon but I'm sure was a great experience nonetheless seeing the harbour and the marine life in the area with a professional guide. We look forward to seeing you on the water again soon!
