Yvonne and Jessie showed us a great afternoon on the the water sea kayaking. We saw harbour seals, sea stars, crabs and many water fowl. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly. The environment was respected as we explored several gulf islands from our vessels. We would highly recommend this company for all.

I had a great whale watching tour with this company. The captain was very skilled, friendly, and knowledgable about the area, animals, and birds. Last time I did a whale watching tour in Tofino I was quite sea sick. This time it was perfect, no sea sickness whatsoever and it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We were lucky and saw...

Thanks for a great review! It sounds like you went on our very popular Chocolate Beach Tour, which is a 3 hour tour, that goes by so fast that most people feel like it is a shorter tour. Time flies when you are having fun!!! I wish you magical adventures for this coming summer! More

We had an excellent whale watching trip with the Salt Spring Adventure Co. Saw a Humpback whale, Seals, Sea lions and various coastal birds, add to that a beautifully scenic trip around the southern gulf islands and a very knowledgeable captain and first mate and you have yourself an awesome time. Highly recommended!
