This approximately 5-hour trip took us around an island, along natural shorelines and up close to amazing rock cliffs. We were lucky to have Kim, the owner, guide the two of us on a late March day. It can be chilly in March so I would recommend a waterproof coat and a fleece sweater underneath, some good gripping waterproof gloves... More

We had an amazing this summer on a four day trip in the Clayquot Sound. My wife, 10 year old daughter and I joined another family on a guided trip. In all categories: local knowledge, food, fun, safety, and skills our two guides (Lennie and Darrin) were top notch.

I found out my trip was being cancelled at 10pm the night before, left me no time to arrange an alternative. Staff were completely unapologetic. I arrived in Vancouver as part of my 6 month US & Canada trip and heard there was some great kayaking and wildlife spotting to be had on Vancouver island. So I searched around, found... More

Our trip today was spectacular. Kim had an awesome trip planned for our family as we explored and circled a couple of the Gulf Islands. It was a beautiful and easy trip for us, being recreational kayakers. The early morning started out drizzling but by the time we arrived for the launch the weather turned for the better. We enjoyed... More

I try and take one major kayaking trip a year. I have been to Prince Williams Sound, Baja Mexico and now I can add the Broken Islands as one of my most memorable trips. These islands are like little jewels scattered in a gorgeous archipelago on the pacific side of Vancouver Island. The scenery was spectacular with the grand peaks... More

We had a nice relaxing trip across the waters from Cedar on Vancouver Island to some nice small Island where we saw many Bald Eagles a river otter and a seal. We landed on a perfect beach and were served a wonderful lunch. Kim our tour guide was very informative about the area. We had all in all about a... More

I and two friends signed up for the 4 day paddle and camp around the Broken Group. Our guide - Philipp Winter - was friendly, attentive, patient and knowledgeable. As a prairie girl, I learned a tremendous amount from our guide about sea life and tides. We had many peaceful encounters with wildlife including harbour seals, bald eagles, black tail... More

The entire family (including grandparents and elementary-aged children) spent a day on the water. We had never kayaked, and this was just a great experience. We weren't rushed, and were able to explore the water, wildlife, and shoreline. Desserts at lunch were fantastic, and Kim is a patient and knowledgeable guide.

From beginning to end, my 6-day guided trip was fantastic. That mainly had to do with the excellent guides, Liam and Kerri, and the leadership of the Owner, Kim (and his wife's delicious muffins). The food was amazing, I always felt completely taken care of. I also always felt safe and informed, and completely entertained/ educated by Liam's wealth of... More

Last August I did a 6 day kayaking trip in Calyquot with Liam as our guide. It was a fantastic trip and I'm planning another one for this year. The food was great, the views spectacular, and Liam was a fountain of knowledge: taught us how to tell the difference between wolf and dog tracks, had tree and whale identification... More
