My husband and I had two days to spend on Vancouver Island and chose Adventuress Sea Kayaking as our main activity for our get-away. The web site gave us great information and what we experienced was exactly what was offered. The booking was easy and Jan responded to us very promptly. After booking, we received an information package that answered every question I had. Having never kayaked before, I had many!
Jan met us warmly and got us all kitted up for our two-hour Sea Lion tour. The safety instructions were thorough and I felt safe and in really good hands. Jan gave us a super on-shore kayaking lesson and I felt confident even as a beginner.
All that is really really important but what happened next was magical. It was a chilly October morning. It was a misty, almost foggy gray day and the water was as still as glass. We paddled along the shore and across the bay in the misty stillness breathing in the wonderful sea air and just letting go and totally living in the beauty of the moment.
Jan gave the history of the area, the names of the islands and points along the shore as well as finding and pointing out all the sea creatures along the way. The sea lions were absolute amazing. We couldn't get over their numbers and the size of them all! We got an added bonus as many of them accompanied us as we paddled away from their haul out and out of the bay. Jan also took time to let us enjoy the silence and peace of the day.
I highly recommend Jan and Adventuress Sea Kayaking. It was beyond wonderful and a day I will always treasure.
