My partner and I rented stand up paddle boards. We were a bit nervous but Mathew W showed us all the tricks. He made us feel very comfortable and confident. We had a great time and will definitely come back. Water around Rush is like glass. This is a must do.

Jordan led my wife and I on a three hour electric bike ride through the forest on a repurposed old train track. He was an excellent and friendly guide who knew a lot about flora and fauna along the way. The bikes were excellent and fun to ride as we could just hit the throttle when we got tired of... More

We went out with Matthew who was our guide, across the bay and into the many beautiful coves nearby. Absolutely stunning views, saw a ton of jelly fish, seals and blue herons. We had some rain which turned out to be very enjoyable as there was no wind, just glassy water. Definitely recommend this company. Super efficient getting us kitted... More

I'm not a bike rider but my husband is so I took one for the team. What a fun, beautiful, easy trip this was. Jordon was our guide and he was great. We were on the bikes, which were very easy to get used to, for about 3 hours. We went to the potholes which were beautiful. Jordon was full... More

We were fortunate to find and use a Groupon with additional 30% off which consisted of a 1 hour SUP Paddling and burger lunch at attached Stickleback eatery, for 2. While the deal was fabulous, the experience was even better, if that's possible. Right from the initial email contact for reservations, Derek addressed all concerns and queries in a timely... More

The boats are in great shape, the exploring and exercise is awesome from the location. I also know first hand that the instruction and... More

The 4 of us had a great time this morning kayaking with Cam as our guide! He was confident and cheerful, informative and helpful. 2 of us were first-time kayakers and we felt really safe and looked after. Beautiful scenery! We'll be back! 100% satisfied! Thanks Cam and Rush Adventures!

Friend and I bought a Groupon for 1 hour stand up paddle boarding with lunch, which was a great deal. Had a great time even though I had never done it before. It was a bit windy however, so it was hard to get anywhere so I would definitely recommend going on a calm day. Employee was very friendly and... More

Came here with a friend from Ontario who was visiting. Took the 3hour tour of Anderson Cove and the surrounding area for $60. Well worth it and easy to get to with the bus system on a weekday. It was more rough the further we got into the bay and cove and you def need some basic level of fitness... More
