My sister and I have been kayaking with this awesome organization for over three years and love getting to work with Jay and his leaders. We love how patient and encouraging jay was with us. He walked us through each step, and even though we have gone on several 3-5 day adventures, we both can see how much catheter is... More

My sister, daughter and I booked a four-hour paddle and it was so great. Jay met us with kayaks, paddles and gear, a lesson in how to paddle efficiently, and we were off. We paddled around Hope Bay and then along the coast to Browning Harbour, with a little detour to Mortimer Spit. Being out on the water on such... More

I just rented a few boats off Jay (owner). I was previously a sea kayak guide but had never kayaked in this area. Jay's insight saved us a lot of hassle and insured we got the local experience. With his relaxed demeanor and his obvious passion for sea kayaking I have no doubt his expertise would translate into fantastic guided... More

We went on a 4 hour harbor trip with Alison. She was a great guide - found lots of hidden wildlife, let us set the pace, gave us tips when we asked for them. She was very friendly and happy to chat or let us do our own thing. The boats were in great shape and everything worked well. We'd... More

We booked last minute a two hour trip for my wife and out seven year old and Jay accommodated us with a fantastic and knowledgeable guide, Allison, who took us all around the gorgeous bay where Browning Point is located and we saw 15 or so seals and their pups, kelp crabs (spooky!) and anemones and star fish. The pace... More

We ended up with a private tour (3 hour program) that the guide/owner catered to us. The guide was so knowledgeable about the water, sea creatures, and Pender Island history and also so personable. We really had a great time.

Went kayaking with Jay two summers ago and was hooked on kayaking!! It was so much fun, felt safe the whole time, and learned lots. Since then, I've managed to get my partner just as interested. We've bought our own equipment now. Finally able to get back to Pender and Jay's excellent instructions. What a terrific afternoon, lots of laughter,... More

We had a family group of 12 ranging in ages from 6 to 76 and Jay and his staff did a great job of accomodating us and our needs. We did the 2 hour trip which was perfect for the little ones and got to see lots of wildlife and learned a lot about beautiful Pender Island. I'd say that... More

Tour guide totally left us behind and took off way ahead. We spent the whole time trying to keep up instead of enjoying our 250$ family excursion. Definitely would not recommend

I'm sorry your experience was not a pleasant one. I have addressed this specific trip to your guide and in saying this, she feels horrible and hopes it has not deterred you from taking a guided kayaking experience with any company in the industry. Please feel free to give me a call personally and we can discuss your experience and... More
