We did NIGHT THE LIGHT PADDLE BOARD and KAYAK with our group and it was so COOL!! Also we have AMAZING tour guide Amanda and Jay (he said we can call him Jay, But I actually forgot his real name)
It was cool to see our kayaks light up at night, but if it is full you can sign up for the evening tour as the scenery and sunset are soo beautiful.

North Island Kayak Telegraph Cove
We enjoyed our trip and saw a lot of wildlife: orcas, humpback whales, pacific white-sided dolphins, birds, seals, otters, mink or marmot (in the parking lot at Telegraph Cove), and more, from both land and kayak.

Kelp Reef Adventures Victoria
Guides Thom and Chantal had strong backgrounds in biological sciences and were very knowledgeable about local ecosystems and marine life which made the trip so much more fascinating than just a guided kayak trip.
Patient, funny, a great kayaking instructor, and with top-notch equipment - it was a chilly day but with the jackets, skirts, gloves and mittens provided everyone was comfortable.
Canadian Wilderness Adventures Whistler
Navigating a lily strewn water course was particularly uplifting and joining faster flowing water enabled all to practise their canoe strokes with the novice mid-50s delighted with their abilities.
Canoeing of the River of Golden Dreams was also great - once on the river the current did a lot of the work, and allowed for a peaceful and enjoyable morning.

West Coast Expeditions Vancouver Island
Kayaking around the many islands was at times very easy and also challenging (depending on the weather of course) so it would be best to have some sea kayaking experience to truly enjoy the amazing geography.
In addition to the great sea kayaking and otter watching, we were able to hike, stand up paddle board, do yoga on the beach, read in a hammock...it was the perfect mix of adventuring and relaxing.
