We did the overnight kayak that left on Sept 12 with JAM and Ashleigh as our guides. The weather was magnificent on both days and very calm on the water. Day 1 was one to remember with a bear sighting before we even left the cove. It only got better with Eagles, Sea Lions and the biggie, a large pod... More

Four of us took the two day kayak trip. We were added to a group of 8 other people who were very nice and thankfully we all got along. The first day was wonderful. Our guides heard on their radios that there were Humpbacks nearby and so we all quickly paddled to the other side of the Strait and were... More

Did the two-day kayaking trip and, even though the wind & waves made for a hard day of paddling, I enjoyed every minute. The highlights: seeing a pod of orcas swim by and experiencing bioluminescence in the water at night.

I did the 4 day trip and it was even better than expected. We saw loads of humpback and killer whales plus a myriad of other wild life, the sea lions being another highlight. There was plenty of time spent on the water, our guide Josh was superb it's always good to have a guide that seems to genuinely love... More

Our 4 day tour with our friends is officially logged in our memories as one of the best adventure experiences of our lives. You really listened to our friend’s wishes as to what we wanted out of this trip and your planning, pacing of the trip and guiding couldn't have been better. Our guide Julian was wonderful. The extra effort... More

My husband and I (in our 50's) did the 1 day trip and it was a day I will never forget! We had a Humpback Whale entertain us from 30 yards away for 20 minutes. We saw 2 Humpback whales, many Seals swimming and suntanning on an island a few yards away. Dolphins, killer whales, 2 Bald eagles on a... More

We saw more whales than i could have thought possible...some so close one of our tour group could have touched it! the campsites were perfect, tents overlooking the ocean, hammocks, great food, Gerhardt calling the whales with his home made PVC didgeridoo (not joking!). I am... More

My fiancee and I did the full day tour. The guides were great, we had some steering issues to begin with which they were patient of and helpful to get us back on track. There were 2 guides both very knowledgable and what impressed me a lot was how respectful there were of the wildlife, making sure we gave the... More

We had the guide (Amanda i think!) all to ourselves - just 3 of us and she was just brilliant. She treated us professionally even though we were all novices and let us take our sweet time trying to get to grips with this kayaking thing! She showed my UK visitors the different sea life and although we couldn't see... More

Words couldn't even explain how amazing our 3 day trip with Jam was! My husband and I started the trip with not the best luck including our airline losing our luggage. North Island Kayak was so accommodating waiting for us while we had to drive and pick up our luggage. When we got to our lunch spot just one hour... More
