I had a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that lasted for 3 days with Wildheart Adventures. This is the second time I have used this company for a multi-day kayak tour. I didn't think my first trip could be outdone, but I was proven wrong! The guides on both trips have been excellent. My first trip was a 6-day Johnstone Strait tour that... More

It has been over half a year now that my cousin and I joined Kim Crosby on a 3-day kayak tour through the Johnstone straight. Despite the time that has passed, I still remember this trip vividly. There were 5 of us in total which was very convenient as we all got to know each other very quickly and had... More

Four of us wanted to have a paddle for a day and found Wildheart that launches from Cedar on the Sea. The weather for September was absolutely amazing to add to this lovely relaxing paddle. We saw some seals, otters, and beautiful sandstone cliffs, all within a short distance away. We left by 1030 and were back by 3 pm,... More

I just finished a 4 day kayak trip through Wildheart and they were everything I expected, and more! The food was awesome, the scenery was gorgeous, and the guide, Kim, was fun and very informative. I would definitely recommend this kayak company to anyone hat was looking to do some outdoor adventures in Vancouver Island!

My wife and I and our college age daughter had a fantastic trip with Wildheart Adventures! - Kim is a excellent guide; very competent, personable and knowledgeable about all things kayaking and the local environment. We had a lot of fun on the paddle, with the added bonus of a great lunch stop on the beach that Kim provided. We... More

This was the most fantastic way to see whales - Orca and Humpbacks, and to see the west coast. I convinced my mom to come with me, she was super nervous about kayaking on the ocean but she did great as did everyone on our trip. Most people did not have much or any kayaking experience prior to this trip,... More

I was on the same trip as sammy whiskers and Duckdeux and the much more accurate account of the trip would have to go to sammy whiskers. Duckdeux started complaining before we even started packing up the boats in Telegraph Cove and they did have plenty of time in the singles throughout the 6 day trip as we all took... More
