Owner description: Regardless if this is your first kayaking adventure or if you are perpetually wet behind the ears, our kayak tours and rentals are a great way to see Victoria and the local marine wildlife from a unique vantage point. Located in the heart of historic Victoria Harbour, Victoria Kayak is just steps away from the Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum and the BC Legislature in downtown Victoria. There’s no better way to kick off a stay in Victoria than with a kayak adventure!

My girlfriend and I rented a tandem kayak and took a guided 2 hour tour of the harbor in the hopes of seeing some seals. We were lucky enough to have one pop up and swim within about 10 feet of our kayak before disappearing below. They provide a waterproof bag so that you can store your camera safely and bring it out at opportune moments.

Both the guy booking the tour and the guide were very friendly. The tour guide was both instructive and easy going which made us feel at ease and relaxed which is good for inexperienced kayakers. Our guide even gave us a good restaurant tip which also turned out to be a great recommendation (Pagliacci's).

I found this great Kayak tour company conveniently located on the float plane docks, right in the inner harbour of Victoria. Cliff, the owner of Victoria Kayak really knows his stuff and although we didn't take one of his tours, we rented great, clean kayaks to explore the harbour. We even got a little map showing where we could go! Definitely something to do while in Victoria!
