What you'll do

I'll pick you up in Victoria and we'll drive to Sidney by van (approximately 40 minutes). We'll get in the kayaks and go for a 2 hour paddle among a cluster of protected islands. The area is known as the gulf islands and is teeming with wildlife. Eagles, herons, cormorants, seals, otters, minks, porpoises and sea lions are common sights. Intertidal life abounds in the shallow channels that are only accessible by kayak.
After the tour I'll drop you back off in downtown Victoria. The evening tour allows us to be on the water at a quieter time of day when wildlife is more active, and enjoy the "golden hour".

Nick was an excellent host and provided a most memorable kayaking experience. His professionalism and expertise were truly appreciated, and he offered an experience I wouldn’t have been able to do on my own. Pickup and drop off were seamless, instructions clear, and the experience itself was something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. We enjoyed a quiet paddle with glimpses of wildlife and picturesque islands. I highly recommend this sunset tour with Nick and wouldn’t hesitate to go again.

Nick a su organiser une expérience adaptée aux besoins de notre famille. L’activité est tout à fait adaptée aux débutants. Je me suis sentie en sécurité dans des kayaks doubles, moi avec un de nos garçons et notre guide avec l’autre. Nous avons longé plusieurs îles et aperçu de nombreux phoques et oiseaux. Les paysages sont magnifiques!
