The 4 hour kayak and hiking trip was wonderful in Torino. It was foggy but that did not take away from the experience. Our trip guide Bryce was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The instructions were clear and the guide was very patient.

It was out 3rd trip with TSK and we will be back for a 4th! It really is the most spectacular place on earth and the BEST way to experience it is in a kayak! I enjoyed seeing the oyster farm… that was cool. Thanks to our guide Gigi!

My husband and I joined the 6 hour tour yesterday. Laurence is definitely the best guide we have encountered so far; besides being an absolute kayaking pro, she is very charming, calm and patient and her knowlege about the local flora, fauna and history is amazing. Astrid and Martin

Wonderful sea kayaking experience in Tofino. I had been in a Kayak before but never on the sea. So glad that we went with a knowledgeable guide ( Neil). I would not have dare to go on the bay without an experienced guide. He made the trip enjoyable and totally safe. My daughter enjoyed holding a real starfish that Neil got of a rock stone .

Laurence deserves a medal of honour for surviving the kayaking trip with my parents. They always taught me to challenge myself and try new things. After learning I loved kayaking-I wanted to challenge them to try something new while we could- but after they arrived realized that with the passage of time, and postponement after years of the pandemic even a beginner trip was a bit much for them. But there we were, all booked in. She was so gracious, supportive and helpful. The trip is really well designed so I can now assure everyone that if my 75-year-old parents did the beginner trip to Meares- anyone can. Don’t be nervous! They will guide you through it. The company really cares about your experience and the operations manager plays close attention to conditions and safety. We watched a guide from another company pick a route too close to shore that put them right in the path of turning boats. We had a carefully designed route with conditions and safety in mind. Laurence loves what she does and is the best instructor and guide who has a passion and respect for the natural world. She was kind and patient beyond measure. Tofino sea kayaking has all the equipment you’ll need for your trip and will get you all ready for your excursion in an organized fashion. The scenery and time out on the water was breathtaking. The gift shop is even beautiful with a great selection of quality items and kind staff. Come even just for a coffee on their stunning patio. Everyone on Vancouver Island should get out kayaking at least once in their life. Thank you for giving my parents that once in a lifetime experience, for your kindness and guidance. We've had a few giggles about my Dad's epic return to shore and I bought him the Tofino Kayaking T-shirt as a great souvenir! Have fun paddling in Costa Rica Laurence! The company is so fortunate to have you as a guide!
