We had a wonderful time on the sunrise kayak even though it was 7 in the morning! We got really close to lots of seals and our guide was really funny (thanks for the secret selfie on my phone).

Had a great trip out with Mike. Lots of seals hanging out and following us. Mike knew a lot about the area and even with less than ideal weather we had a great time.

Me and three friends rented a kayak each and paddled up the gorge. Amazing day! Emma was amazing at setting us up and getting us on our way. Great job! We'll be back soon :) I highly recommend Victoria Kayak. Phil C.

We were semi-hesitant, given we had two children with us, age 5 and 7. Yet, it was a blast for everyone and saw parts of the city we'd never have seen otherwise. The guides were very patient and made it a really fun experience. (We have no kayaking experience like this.)

We went on a two-and-a-half-hour tour with Victoria kayak tours up the gorge on Saturday morning. At first I was hoping to go to Seal Island but the weather was too windy. However it turned out to be a fantastic tour of the gorge where we discovered different neighborhoods and really neat areas of the region. Our guide Emma was... More

Picture 4 hesitant seniors with bad backs, sore shoulders, stiff knees and arthritic hands. We had never been kayaking before. None of us thought we would be able to sit in a kayak for 2 1/2 minutes let alone 2 1/2 hours. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday evening Gorge Tour. Managed to get back to the dock without...

It was a different view of the harbor. The tour we went on was good but seamed a little disorganized. I was never sure where we were going or where I should be padding too. Be prepared to get wet in a kayak. Was also hard to hear the tour guides at times or they would give conflicting information between... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable morning kayaking in beautiful Victoria harbour and out towards the sea. Emma, our tour guide, was lovely, very knowledgable on Victoria's history and she took us out to Seal Island where the seals were basking with their pups - great to see them up close. Would definitely recommend a tour.

We picked it for the fun website and great location. It exceeded our expectations! We booked the sunset trip and would highly recommend this to everyone whether you are an experienced kayak-er or never done it before.
