Amazing. Absolutely amazing. Our guides John and Alex were extremely knowledgable. Equipment seemed a-okay to me. Although this was my first experience kayaking. The wildlife was out of this world!!!! Alex and John both said the bountiful whale sighting that we saw are rare. Our group was blessed to see 2 pods of orcas. Once when leaving the harbour and...

We went out on a two day trip with our guide Becky and two couples. It was an unreal experience, so much wildlife! We really couldn't have asked for a better two days. The sun was out, the water was calm, and the food was amazing(too much food almost!) On the first day we only really saw Dulls porpoises and... More

There is nothing like being surrounded by the natural wildlife. The day we went out, we were able to go across the straight where there were "bait balls." This brought in all the wildlife that went around us. Humpback whales swam in circles and were seen breaching. Porpoises and dolphins chased schools of fish. A sea lion came 6 feet... More

As I got in touch with Brian, he gave me prompt and clear information about our two days trip. Ashley brought us around. She was that helpful and graceful, not to say about whales, seals, bald eagles, orcas... great dining and breathing in the camping site. To us it's been a gift we plan to repeat as soon as possible.

Me and my 4 friends went for a 5 days trip with Joel. Awesome first time kayaking experience! Plenty of wildlife: whales (orcas, humpbacks, purposes), bears, eagles, dolphins and much more. All the food was provided by the company and prepared by the amazing chef Joel, which brought the camping food experience to high standards. Camping was awesome and we... More

This trip was wonderful for many reasons. First and foremost, our guide Brad. We are a family of 5, and went on a 6 day trip. Brad made everything very comfortable and easy. He made us great food, was knowledgable about the wildlife and let us do as much or as little paddling as we wanted each day. We camped... More

We had an amazing time during our two day tour. Our guide, Rob, was great, enthusiastic and full of stories and information about the wildlife. We saw many many whales and orcas and we enjoyed every single moment. North Kayak are very well equipped and they provided us with everything we needed. Even the accommodation was well taken care off... More

Our guide Bree was fantastic: calm, really clear and devoted to wildlife. Just four of us on a two day paddle. The camping was wonderful but the nature was the star. A bear on the beach and sea lions - a leaping humpback - fascinating intertidal starfish and jellyfishes and then a whole pod of killer whales passing by our... More

Our guide Brian was very kind and extremely knowledgeable. Our group saw plenty of wildlife from Orcas and humpbacks to jellyfish and sea lions. I received exactly what I wanted from this trip. Definitely worth it! -Mark F
