My sister & I took the half-day guided tour with Kathy-what a great way to spend 3 hours! All the staff was so friendly and helpful; all equipment was provided-life vest, water bottle, dry bags. I've kayaked many times but my sister has only been in a kayak once-our guide, Kathy, took the time to make sure everyone had a... More

We spent a full day on the river with 1000 Islands Kayaking and our guides Hugh and Megan. What a wonderful experience. There were 12 in our little group but in all over 50 with 6 guides. The staff are very knowledgeable, patient, fun and quirky at times! The day wasn't looking the greatest with dark clouds and lots of... More

I was referred to this company by a family member who spoke highly of them. My girlfriend and I booked a half day tour that included instruction on safety and kayaking basics. The staff, and our guide in particular (Melissa), were very friendly and knowledgeable. They used quality gear and kayaks (mostly Wilderness Tsunamis) which made the experience all the... More

My cousin and I went for the full day guided tour and it was a delightful experience. Great guides led us through the basics of kayaking, which took the nerves out within the first half hour. They shared quite a few interesting stories about the various islands, served us a nice lunch, and took some really good pictures for us.... More

Truly an excellent way to enjoy the islands. My boyfriend and I had the best time paddling through this amazing part of canada. The company gave us a map, and dry bags and even rain jackets (as we chose a day to go that was raining)

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a great day in the water. We booked a day trip, and since all other guests on the day booked half day trips it was only us and the guide. Regrettably I could not to recall the name of the guide, because I could not imagine having a better one. He had great stories to... More

4 friends had a great day out kayaking around the 1000 islands, messing about in the water and soaking up the fantastic scenery. Our guide Kelly was excellent, funny, knowledgeable and really made the day out. She judged the level of the group well and took us on an interesting route which was just the right length. She also didn't... More

great day kayaking with Melissa who is an expert guide getting us across the channels and using the winds to advantage. It was the afternoon part of the trip I will remember fro our visit to HAlf Moon BAy where the present recedes to the 1800's as we visualized the little cove filled with boats crowded from one end to...

A group of Road Scholars spent four days kayaking with 1000 Island Kayak Outfitters and it was a wonderful experience. The staff hired by Scott, especially Kelly, were enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
