We went on a day trip with Wildheart Adventures and it was AMAZING!! We had perfect weather too so that was just an added bonus. We had a small group with 4 tandem kayaks (8 people) plus our guide Kim who was fantastic. The trip was about 4 hours in total and we got to see so much. We not... More

I booked Kim's Daytripper package for my daughter's birthday. I wanted a knowledgable, easy-going guide and lunch included so we wouldn't have shop/carry/build/clean up. Turned out to be an excellent idea. . Kim led us on a well paced, well equipped paddle and fed us a beautiful (enormous) lunch. We had a perfect day and will recommend this to anyone.... More

I decided to surprise my fiancee with this trip for her birthday. I opted for the 3-day and 2-night tour from Telegraph Cove. In the build up to this trip, Kim (our guide) was great and provided me with all the details to get prepared. We are already keen kayakers but we have not done too much on the open... More

we did a 3 day, 2 night trip with WildHeart. Our guide Jennaka was positive and informative. Unfortunately a bad storm blew in so we were landlocked for the 2nd day of the trip, but Jennaka kept us busy with walks, great food, and wildlife watching. Her communication was great and helped us feel safe and calm when the water... More

This was a three hour kayak trip from Nanaimo. Kim, the owner and our tour guide, provided a great paddling experience and tour of the waters off the coast of Nanaimo. We paddled for about 90 minutes, stopped at a remote beach for a delicious home made lunch (prepared by his wife), and then paddled another hour. The kayaks were... More

Kim was so knowledgable, you could really tell he loves what he does. We had an awesome time today! The sandstone formations was by far the highlight of the trip! Everything was planned so properly, he set out a delicious lunch and we were able to explore an island for awhile before we had to paddle back. If your in... More

This was a last minute decision and I am so glad that I did this! We did a day paddle that, in total was around 3 hours of paddling. It was an easy kayak across the Stewart Channel to Link, Mudge and Gabriola islands. Along the way we saw some wonderful wildlife that was highlighted by our two guides, Kim... More

Before we did wildheart adventures, we were looking into a kyaking trip but were debating whether to do a tour or just rent kyaks. I can safely say it was WAY WAY WAY worth it to do the day trippers tour with Wildheart Adventures. Our guide Kim answered all our questions before our trip and made sure we were ready... More

We had the pleasure of joining Kim for an afternoon Paddle and were thrilled to discover Wildheart adventures. We are totally "Sold" on adding Kayaking to our lifestyle. The scenery plus wild life and overall experience was a 10+. To top it off Kim's wife prepared a delicious home made lunch. We would highly recommend this to anyone no matter... More

We did a day tripper tour with Wildheart Adventures and had the great pleasure of having Kim as our guide. He was gracious enough to order up perfect weather for us and his wife made some great food for our lunch. We had a group of 6, none of which had ever kayaked before, and his instructions were very clear... More
