Peter was great! We saw great views and lots of cool birds. Peter was very knowledgeable about everything. We had to cut our tour a little short due to a bad storm, but Peter handled the situation perfectly. He paid very close attention to the changing weather, and safely guided us back when it became necessary for us to do so.

What a wonderful way to see Toronto Islands, and experience the fun of canoeing. Peter was great and very professional from the beginning - messaged very clear details on how to reach the island and find him. He knows what he is doing and shared a lot of great things about the island, birds and surrounding. Highly recommend this experience! Thank you.

Highly recommended if you visit the Toronto Islands . Very little expertise needed except a calm mind and ability to follow simple instructions. Rewarding in the end.

Peter is a nice host and kept us all engaged. He definitely took care of safety as well as comfort. We often stopped rowing as we are not regulars but he kept doing.

Peter was amazing this experience far surpassed any expectations I had. He has a lot of knowledge of the area and the time flew by with the conservation and great scenery. 100/10

I bought this experience as a birthday gift for my husband. He'd never been to the islands and it was the perfect way to get to see all of the nooks and crannies and get to learn some of the history of the area. Thank you! We highly recommend!
