My husband and I just went to Deep Cove Kayak to rent a double kayak and we had such a great time there! The staff was very professional. The price for a double kayak for 3 hours was 88can (taxes included). The cove is huge, so you have a lot of choices to go to! Great staff, great material... HIGHLY... More

We decided to take our kids (ages 11 and 8) out for this wonderful excursion on the last weekend of summer vacation. We've been out on the water in Deep Cove before on a power boat - never on kayaks. We arrived at the sign-in shack about 15 minutes early as requested by the reservations staff. Deep Cove Kayak sent... More

We live in Vancouver and have wanted to go kayaking for quite some time! We finally got around to it and booked the 3 hour explorer tour from 1pm-4pm. The first thing we discovered - even on a rainy day, parking in Deep Cove is awful!! Allow lots of extra time (at least 15-20 minutes) to park and walk down... More

We did the 3 hour tour in a group of 14 people and we had a blast. Our guides (Spencer and Oliver) were super friendly and chilled. We got to see seals, jelly fish and a heron. We all ended up in double kayaks even though we wanted singles, but it turned out to be a lot of fun in... More

Hi Buisisters - thanks so much for your review of the Island Explorer Tour. It can indeed be a hard day with 5 hours paddling, but the stunning scenery is worth it, we're sure you'd agree! We'll pass on your comments to Trent who, we agree, is great. Thanks again - hope to see you out again soon. More

The rain scared a few people away on the day of the tour; however, it was a great experience for me since it gave me a chance to test my paddling skills in different weather conditions and I enjoyed the challenge! I took the tour because I'm new to kayaking and it was a great way for me to get... More

Line for paddleboard & kayaking rental was long and there were no paddleboards available for the day. What to do? Ok. I will go kayaking. Do you have any experience on kayaking? I was asked.
