We arrived in the morning to a warm greeting from the guides. After a short van ride we were kitted out and taught the basics of a kayak. We then spent a most informative morning observing wildlife in and out of the crystal clear water. Our guide made the day most interesting together with a great sense of humor. A wonderful day and a great company to support. Excellent experience.

Headed out on the bay to see the sights. Very small group - 2 kayaks plus the guide. Guide was terrific. It was high tide so the shoreline was not exposed but we saw plenty. Eagle nest and eagle, baby Harbor seal and mom, plus a group of Harbor seals hidden in a protected cove. All in all, a fun adventure.

What an amazing adventure!! Ryan and Simon were wonderful tour guides and so knowledgeable. We actually encountered 5 hump back whales that were bubble feeding while we were kayaking. Got to follow them around a bit! Weather was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Highly recommend this group to anyone. Very personable and wonderful group of guys. Also offered the bike tours, but we opted for the kayaking!

None of our party had our own kayak gear/clothing, but they outfitted us completely for safety and comfort. Among the six of us, all middle aged women, we had different levels of experience and skill, and they treated everyone with respect. The guides were knowledgeable, , skilled, funny, and well-informed about local eco-issues. Great trip!

What an amazing tour...Ryan, our lead tour guide, was passionate, knowledgeable, and very easy-going. He and Derrick, our other guide also passionate, knowledgeable and easy-going taught us how to maneuver the kayaks and we took off in the ocean for our tour. Our first stop was at the tidal wall where we learned about starfish, chilton and limpets. We then paddled over to a bald eagle's nest and saw mom flying around the nest while the fledgings were deciding whether or not if they should take their first flight...unfortunately, they weren't quite ready to venture out of their huge home! Just past the nest, a massive sea lion and his ladies came by to check us out. They didn't get too close - except for the one that swam directly under Ryan's kayak! It was a blast paddling around the ocean...I think I want Ryan's job! We ended up back at the tour site for smoked salmon, dip and hot drinks...the tour was a highlight of our entire cruise!

My family and I had a great time on this tour. It was just our group of four and we were led by Ryan who was knowledgeable about the wildlife and sealife in the area. We had clear skies but they outfitted us with rain gear just in case. The kayaks we used could be steered
with foot pedals so it was very easy to navigate. Very friendly guides and great salmon dip at the end!
