Last summer we went on a 3 day canoe trip with Discovery Expeditions, hosted by Larry & Co. Although the environment was incredible we didn't have the "amazing" experience as others describe on TA. We'd definitely take another kayak trip in this area but would go with another company.
The wildlife, the scenery and kayaking were incredible. We met some great new friends and enjoyed spending time with them on Little Sophia Island. Our campsite & our little private beach were beautiful. Nice hearty porridge for breakfast.
Basic Services: No campfires despite being on a pebble beach (except to burn garbage in the morning?). No water to wash up despite an outdoor bathroom set up including sinks etc on the island. No water or containers to fetch our own water. Guess staff couldn't be bothered to hang a few water bags to accommodate? No hand sanitizer despite multiple requests from families with small children.
Kayak: Despite their promise of 6-9 hours of kayaking a day the reality is that we spent a max of 3 hours a day. Kayak instruction was very limited & basically your own your own. There was a small child on a 4 day stay & Larry didn't supply a child's lifejacket despite plenty of advanced warning.
Food: The food was no strictly a no frills deal, frozen salmon for each meal (except breakfast) for the duration of our stay: BBQ salmon, salmon tacos, more BBQ salmon, salmon sandwiches... no alternatives offered. Larry trapped 2 crabs one night but 2 crabs for 12 people doesn't go far. No campfires. No marshmallow roasting. Smores done in tin foil on a cook stove on our last night- but charred & inedible. Coffee restricted to one cup per day...
The trip cost about $350. per person per day so they should have made a much bigger effort and delivered a much better product. There are lots of other companies in the area that are willing to go the extra mile...
