“Most amazing 5 day kayaking tour.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

We had a guide - Phillip who made our adventure so carefree and enjoyable from start to finish. We had the pleasure if viewing sealife in calm waters just as you would be looking into an aquarium. LOVED IT.

“Excellent sea kayaking adventure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Second Batstar wilderness kayaking and camping outing for my husband and myself this August. This time to the Broken Group Islands in Barclay Sound. Last summer to Clayquot Sound. Both multi-day. Guides highly competent. Good equipment. Special bonus: gourmet food. Both trips have a "home island" so you're not moving camp once you settle in. Take paddles out from that island. Spectacular scenery including whales, sea lions, seals, many eagles, oyster catchers, etc. The sea stars, formerly known as "star fish," are phenomenal in the Broken Group. Blake and Rhonda, very affable and helpful owners, provide B&B accommodations in Port Alberni for first and last nights of trip, making it very easy for those driving from some distance. Take ferry from mainland [Tsawwassen] to Nanaimo, beautiful scenery. Head north and cut off at Hwy. 4B, stopping at Goats on Roof Restaurant and market, unique and excellent meals.

“Once in your life you HAVE to do this.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

My wife & I took the Broken Islands weekend with a couple of friends. It was a fantastic 4 days in the islands. The scenery was outrageously good; the whales and other marine life were a bonus. Our guides were were extremely knowledgeable and just great people to be with. The whole trip was great from start to finish. It doesn't get much better than this. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful Family Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Our family of 4, with two boys aged 11 and 13, thoroughly enjoyed our sea kayaking trip of the Broken Group Islands with Batstar. Every aspect of the trip was a great experience - from the initial booking call with Blake to being dropped off at the rental car location in town. Blake, Rhonda and their daughters happily catered to us while at their home the days before and after the actual trip. They even let us do our laundry! Jeff and Chelsea were attentive and energetic guides who went beyond the call of duty to give us the best experience possible. The equipment, which was all provided, was high quality, and although one kayak had a problem early in the trip it didn't slow us down. Finally, the food. I can honestly say we have never eaten so well and so healthily on a camping trip. Every meal and snack was delicious and there was always enough. We can highly recommend Batstar and wouldn't hesitate to do another adventure with them in the future.

“Amazing adventure -”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

Had an amazing week sea kayaking. Everything was first class. Our two Guides Laurel and Chealse were outstanding! Their expertise and knowledge of the area was greatly appreciated by all. The meals were fantastic! Our group of 8 (age 49 to 59) thoroughly enjoyed camping out and our daily adventures from Dodds island. Highly recommend Batstar
