My sister and I had an amazing guided kayak tour today, with Nick. He paddled us out to some great areas and was very knowledgeable about the local waters, creatures and fauna. I would highly recommend this company

Went on a guided 2 hour kayak tour with Nick (the new owner). Nick was very pleasant, patient and super knowledgable about the sea life and ecosystem around the Gulf Islands. Would definitely go again!
