We had a blast on our kayaking trip! Nici is a very patient and caring guide, I couldn't ask for anyone better. I never felt nervous or scared, and knew I was in good hands the entire time. We will definitely be back for more kayaking with Victoria Waterfront Tours.

My wife and I decided to go kayaking for her 30th birthday and a friend recomended victoria waterfront tours to us and we had a blast, for our first time kayaking the guide was very helpfull in regaurdes to teaching us the basics of kayaking and going over all the safety aspects of kayaking, they even went above and beyond and did a little something special for my wifes birthday. We had an amazing time and recommend to any one visiting victoria and those who already live in Victoria to take a tour with Victoria Waterfront Tours, it is well worth it.

My father in law wanted a family kayak experience that he would remember. Hiring Nici and her double kayak plus two singles for us, beautiful weather, seals and seal pups and sharing of local knowlege made for such a day.
Nici's contracts for kayak tours with cruise ship visitors speaks well of her professionalism and her attention to safety ensured the success of our adventure..
If you are thinking of taking a tour, gone on....give it a whirl with Nici!

We did have a great day! Your father in law really enjoyed kayaking. Thank you for all of your help and for your patience while we helped the paddler from another kayaking group that was in trouble. It is most appreciated!!

My two son's ages 27 & 25 and I wanted something fun and physical to do as part of our cruise to Alaska. Victoria was one of the ports. I found out about Victoria Waterfront Tours from TripAdvisor and because of the great reviews scheduled a tour with Nici. It turned out to be a very pleasant experience and everything we wanted. Nici was extremely prompt and thorough in all or our communications prior to meeting. She was well informed, flexible and very pleasant during the tour and instructional session right before the tour. The equipment was in very good condition. She went the extra mile by having a little snack for us while on the tour and also took some pictures which she e-mailed up after the tour. I would definitely recommend Victoria Waterfront Tours for anyone wanting a first rate kayaking experience.
