Great for any level of experience. Our guide Dan was fantastic! The scenery is majestic. Get there early to walk around the area and get some Honey's Donuts to keep your energy level up.

Several times over the years I have rent a sea kayak and headed out for a day of visiting with a friend. I try to go 2 or 3 times a summer season. You must reserve ahead.

We spent three hours getting a good workout in, seeing some wildlife and hearing stories about the different islands in the Indian Arm and how they came to be. James did an excellent job of guiding us. Huge plus was the donuts from... More

I highly recommend this tour if you’re new to kayaking. Special kudos to Dan Cullen! You couldn’t ask for a better guide. Although I didn't bring mine, I recommend that you bring your camera - you'll be rewarded with amazing views. I look forward to exploring more of Deep Cove the next time I visit Vancouver.

We did the Deep Cove tour. Highly recommended. We saw a seal, star fish and jelly fish. Clear water surrounded by large mountains. The guide keeps everyone together. Perfect for inexperienced kayakers.

Amazing experience! Great guide in Andy, we had a still calm night, too many clouds to see the moon, but great scenery before sunset, and awesome paddling back in the dark!

Came up to Deep Cove with two friends to experience the moonlight kayak tour. The moon did not show itself, but the kayak tour exceeded our expectations. The number of boats, speed of kayaks, and number of guides was perfect. We stopped a few times to gather the group, everyone was pretty relaxed and comfortable. There were stories, laughter, and...

My husband and I just went to Deep Cove Kayak to rent a double kayak and we had such a great time there! The staff was very professional. The price for a double kayak for 3 hours was 88can (taxes included). The cove is huge, so you have a lot of choices to go to! Great staff, great material... HIGHLY... More
