Coastal Bliss provided a guide and transport so we could do 3 hikes of the Juan De Fuca trail. We had an excellent experience as the guides were knowledgeable and very competent in a challenging environment. We saw bears, sea lions, deer, mink and other wildlife. Lots of flora

Of course, we cannot control how intense the bioluminescence is in any way. Some nights it is very brilliant, others not. We do, however control how it is promoted, and on our website, we clearly state that it is a kayaking tour: "Come Kayak By Moonlight or Bioluminescence....Our night tours are some of the most special times paddling in Cowichan Bay. The times vary throughout the summer, as the days lengthen headed toward summer solstice, and then shorten after June 21st. We start these tours just before sunset, watching the colorful glow over the surrounding mountains, paddling slowly around the bay, waiting for darkness and the first light of the bioluminescence. The full moon nights give an added treat, but limit the visibility of the bioluminescence." The moon was already well advanced toward the full moon on the night you chose, Mary. We are sorry that it was not what you were expecting, but we were not hiding anything.
