Victoria, BC, Canada : Kayak tours & rentals

Guided Tours

All Tours are guided by a professional sea kayak guide. Beginners and children seven and older welcome! Before every tour and rental we give a thorough safety briefing encompassing the kayak safety equipment and use, the harbour traffic schematic, and the most effective paddling technique.

3 Hour Morning Paddle $90 with picnic

Explore Victoria’s scenic coastline and surrounding islets. During a picnic stop in a Bull Kelp forest, our experienced guides will share with you their knowledge of our diverse ecosystem. Vancouver Island is rich in marine wildlife; we’ll visit with Harbour Seals, River Otters, Great Blue Herons, Bald Eagles and Canada Geese. It’s ocean kayaking at its best and we provide the snack. Guided daily at 9 am.

2 Hour Tour $59

Paddle the sheltered bays and hidden coves of Victoria’s waterfront or see the city’s historic port from a unique perspective. This tour is ideal for novice paddlers and families with children 7 years and older. There will be a brief harbour orientation and kayak instruction followed by a 90 minute paddle. Guided daily at 1 pm and 4 pm.

Evening Paddle $59

When the sun is low in the sky and the city rests, the seals, otters and mink emerge to hunt for dinner. Just before twilight is the best time to be on the water, as the setting sun transforms the harbour in colour. On calm evenings we venture outside the harbour to watch seals feeding in the kelp forest. Guided daily at 7 pm.

What to Bring:

We provide the necessary safety equipment, spray skirt, a waterproof paddling jacket, gloves and drinking water. On cool mornings we suggest light layers underneath our jackets such as a T-shirt and a light fleece or a long sleeved shirt. Remember, we will be paddling and we will generate warmth. On a sunny afternoons just a T-shirt and a cap or sun hat and sunglasses are best. Also thanks to our convenient kayak launch you won’t even get your feet wet so wear socks and a comfortable pair of shoes. And don’t forget your camera, we have dry bags for your use.
