Regardless if this is your first kayaking adventure or if you are perpetually wet behind the ears, our kayak tours and rentals are a great way to see Victoria and the local marine wildlife from a unique vantage point. Located in the heart of historic Victoria Harbour, Victoria Kayak is just steps away from the Empress Hotel, Royal BC Museum and the BC Legislature in downtown Victoria. There’s no better way to kick off a stay in Victoria than with a kayak adventure!

Our family of 5 had a great morning kayaking from the Inner Habour to the Upper Habour. Our guide, Kip, did a great job of pacing our family on our first family kayaking trip. Super fun! Family friendly! Highly recommend Victoria Kayak!

Had a beautiful day for a wonderful afternoon kayaking tour with Corey. He was very knowledgeable and personable. I would highly recommend Victoria Kayaking for beginners and experienced kayakers.

A very enjoyable afternoon spent kayaking up The Gorge Waterway. Joanna was an excellent instructor and guide, and totally put us at ease. She suggested we start with a tandem (double) kayak, which is easier to paddle, and much more stable. We enjoyed the scenery...More
