We are located in the best location to kayak Victoria's Outer Harbour ! Amazing Olympic Mountain vistas,seal colonies, blue herons, eagles, jellies, star fish and kelp forests are just around the headland from our shop. We offer several guided sea kayaking tours that range from an Inner Harbour paddle to a true West Coast paddling experience with a catered picnic on Cherry Beach. Enjoy the flavor of a local marina and paddle with us in Victoria's amazing ocean environment. Along with our kayaking tours we are now offering Victoria Sightseeing Tours. Join us in exploring the beaches west of Victoria as well as the unique markets close to the city. We also have a city tour with a kayaking tour combined. We look forward to exploring with you!
