    Two Hour Paddle Had a wonderful two-hour paddle in Johnstone Strait with Liv and Mia (Mila?) as guides. I'm not an experienced paddler but they did everything to ensure we felt safe and comfortable. We were fortunate that it was a clear day and saw seals, a porpoise and eagles. I definitely recommend! …

    Paddle Paradise I just completed a 4 day Kayak trip and have to say it exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Brie, was the key to our experience on and off the water. Her knowledge of the area, tides and animals made each day interesting. Her passion for the history of the peoples of the region, past and present, added a whole new dimension to our trip. While we saw whales, dolphins, seals/pups and sea lions, she also made sure we didn't miss what was going on in the tidal pools which had a lot of creatures to behold. Our meals were fantastic and varied. …

    Exceptional 4 night/ 5 day Trip From Start to Finish From the moment our trip began on the docks at North Island Kayak and we were in Bree and Heather's care, we were in the best hands. From their deep knowledge about local ecosystems, Indigenous history of the area, kayaking and how to teach it, safety, weather and climate of the region, to gourmet cooking and hosting skills, these two blue ice out of the water every single day. We loved the base camps that are setup, they are expertly crafted and extremely thought out. the heater at 'Squatch was a big hit! Could not recommend North Island Kayaks or Bree and Heather any higher! …

    Excellent kayaking trip! We went on the three day trip with Dan and Reid. They were an excellent team: professional, friendly, and supportive. Their instructions and leadership were clear. Their cooking was exceptional. I would highly recommend them. Tents were roomy, sleeping pads comfortable and the kayaking enjoyable. Highly recommended. …
