Took my 1st kayaking adventure with Outdoor Odysseys, July 23, 2013. Pre planning questions were promptly answered by owner Tom & business mgr Peter. Our guide that day on the Eagles & Orcas trip was Ellie and she was terrific. Ellie was observant, conscientious and concerned about our safety as well as enjoyment. She was adept at reading the water and led us on a conservative route to & from Deadman's Bay, pointing out an eagle, seal pups, sea stars, kelp beds, and the currents. Just as I was questioning why another company's kayakers were out further in the churning water, one of their kayaks flipped over. Quick thinking Ellie went into rescue mode, directing our group to gather together & wait in the safety of the kelp beds, while she (and I as we shared the kayak) set out to help. Ellie gave direction to the other group's kayakers to head in to Small Pox Bay while their guide worked to right the over turned kayak. I'm so impressed by Ellie and Outdoor Odyssey. lunch was a delicious & nutritious humus, cheese, veggie stuffed pita & fruit for me, but I noticed that consideration was made for a gluten free guest. Be sure to bring your own bottled water as directed in the information provided by the company.
