My boyfriend and I did the 6 day kayaking trip with our guide Joël. Not only did we always feel safe, we got to experience some amazing wild life and see some spectacular views. Each campsite proved to be even more beautiful than the last, which I didn't even think was possible. Not only was being on the water amazing,... More

With my family had a fantastic time on a 3 days tour. Bree is a very nice person and an excellent cook. Thank you for the good time we had.

Part of our family group did the 2 hour tour while the other did the half-day (4hr) tour. It was just so beautiful. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable, it was very safe and accommodating for our young children (6, 9 and 11). I would definitely return for the longer tours, there was so much so see and the landscape... More

The camp was well organised and the food tasted good. Main advice for people going on this trip would be to... More

We did a half day trip and had a great time. Me, my wife, my nine year old daughter and mother all went. We saw a black bear rubbing against a tree and laid down to take a nap, a harbor seal and her pup laying on rocks, and many other cool things. Our guides were knowledgeable, experienced, and nice,...

Our four day trip was great and guide Josh was more than capable on and off the water. His cooking was top notch starting with salmon the first night and he was personable and entertaining. Along with this it was obvious he was experienced in taking "newbie" kayakers. And I guess we benefited from a recent refurbish of the base... More

We (myself, partner and baby) just got back from a road trip in Canada and the kayak tour was defenitily one of the highlights. I got lucky, because in the beginning of June beautiful Telegraph Cove isn't yet too crowded with tourists. So I actually got a private 2 hour tour with my guide Joshua. And it was a truly... More

My adult son and I did the half-day kayak. We came just before the orcas so we accepted that we would not be seeing any. We were also just before the school holidays so the whole area was wonderfully quiet and empty. It was a delightful trip made so by our guide Amanda (I hope I got her name right!).... More

My husband and I traveled from across the globe for this trip and we were really excited. We were ready to rough it and see the wildlife of beautiful BC. We landed in Telegraph Cove and had our first pleasant surprise... it is the only group that is actually locally based from what we understood. This made us appreciate their... More

Had a great 3 day trip with them. I know I was probably lucky with the weather, etc. but saw an amazing amount of wildlife. Our guide, Brie, was excellent (another review tags her as condescending - I did not find that). First time I have had someone cook for me in the backcountry - I could get used to... More
