Wonderful Sailing Experience for the Family!
Jul 2019
My family booked a 4-hour sailing tour with Sunshine Kayaking for my husband's 30th birthday and it was a wonderful time! Our captain was very friendly and knowledgable of the area. The sailboat fit our group of 5 adults and 2 children comfortably (though more than this may be a tight fit on this particular boat so be sure to ask about the different options). We had to start late because there was a lot of traffic on our way from Sechelt to Gibsons and they still gave us the full 4-hours which was very nice and unexpected! The kids got to jump off the boat into the water and go swimming which they really loved. It was an afternoon to remember and my entire family had a great time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy some fun on the water and sight-see the area in a unique way!

Best of the Sunshine Coast
Great location, easy access, quick sign up, and friendly staff!

We were going to go kayaking from another place in Sechelt, and the Australian girl working was so rude.

Loretta, the woman who greeted us on the phone and when we arrived was informative and nice! Greg, who helped us with the kayaks was very helpful as well.

Highly recommend! We will be coming back!

Tips: use the skirts Greg offers!

This place is great!

My husband and I found this place by total accident via google. If we had realized its location before we paid for a rental we likely probably would have been deterred from using this place BUT I am so glad we were not deterred. We rented a kayak from here to do a self-guided tour of the Pasley Islands. It was an awesome trip. The kayak and equipment were nice and well kept and we were provided a map for our self-guided tour. We rented a double kayak for 8 hours and had it for about 7 hours. We stopped a few really quiet coves for a couple swims and lunch for a couple hours as well. Because you are starting on the sunshine coast you are away from lots of boat traffic and have really good views of the mountains and islands. You also avoid looking at the city. There was tons of sea life as well. The purple star fish is still thriving here, they were sea otters everywhere, and we paddled right past a mated pair of bald eagles. This was seriously a really good day trip from the city and a perfect cap to our Olympic Park & Vancouver vacation. I would suggest this not only for any visitor to Vancouver but also just a really good day trip or overnight trip for a local.

It is important for planning to know that you need to take a ferry from West Vancouver to Langdale to get to the harbor and the Sunshine Coast; HOWEVER, this was totally worth it and I highly recommend it for multiple reasons. We parked our car at Horseshoe Bay, walked onto the ferry and took the bus from the ferry to the harbor. It was super easy and the bus from the ferry in Langdale to the harbor took 5 minutes and was super easy to navigate. You could also bring your car onto the island and do some driving on the sunshine coast as there is a ton to see but since we weren't staying overnight we went for the economic option. Round trip ferry fare was about $16 each ($13 USD at the time) The ferry ride took 40 minutes and the views are insane. Honestly this is more like a 40 minute sightseeing tour. The scenery was beautiful. I point out all this information because I think some people would see the ferry and this places location as a deterrent, and it should be a reason to go not a deterrent. Gibsons is quiet, has great restaurants at far less cost then Vancouver.

The only reason I didn't do 5 stars was because we did feel a bit rushed at the dock, but I think this was more due to the fact that we showed up 30 minutes early and the owner was kind enough to put us in the water right away even though by being early we overlapped with two other reservations. Another improvement that could be made for the shop would be to explain the private property high water line rule, since we weren't from B.C. we didn't know the rules. It took my husband and I a while to understand that we could stop on the islands as long as we were below the high-water line and not on top of the houses. We kept avoiding spots because we could see a "Private Property" signs and when we finally got close enough to read the small print we realized that we could infact stop at these spots as long as we stayed below the high water line, which is easy enough.

Spent the May long weekend in Gibsons and had a very exciting time sailing with Greg at Sunshine Kayaks, we also went fishing and had a tour around the harbor with them. Owners very knowledgeable and friendly and couldn't have asked for a better time. Thanks very much Greg and Loretta, we highly recommend Sunshine Kayaking!
