“One of the best Kayaking & Outfitters on the planet”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

The main reason that this place is so great is that it's owned by Jack Rosen, one of the most experienced kayak guides in the area and one of the most accomplished kayakers in the world. This fine fellow things nothing of hoping in his kayak and paddling up to alaska, like 800 miles north of her up the inside passage and though the notorious hecate straight. Impressive. Apart from that they have everything you need in terms of camping supplies, hiking and wet weather gear, kakaking equipment. Fantastic location also with a beautiful beach for launching kayaks and they even have an affordable B&B also.

“Full Moon Paddle”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

My husband and I were on the island and were lucky enough to be there when there was a full moon. Jack was our guide and he was very knowledgable on the tour and helpful getting us inexperienced kayakers geared up and on the water. We had a great time!

“Beautiful Paddle to Goat Island”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

Third time kayaking with Island Escapades. Beautiful sunny day and perfect conditions for a two hour paddle. Our guide, Daniel, was excellent! He explained everything thoroughly and made us feel confident. He was very helpful and patient. The smells, the shoreline, the wildlife.....the friendly group...all made for another memorable kayaking excursion.
