We had a great time on the water and saw some wild life and several star fish. Our guide was amazing and recommend them completely

We did not take advantage of what Sealegs had on offer as we are independent kayakers; however, we had not paddled in the area so asked some questions. Specifically, Dillon was amazing at providing guidance and suggestions that enabled us to enjoy our time in the area. Thanks so much!!

Stopped while at the Brits on the Beach car fest. Did a 2-person kayak and one paddleboard. Can't say how the paddleboard was, but it looked quality. Kayak was great! All equipment is mid to high end, great experience! At the time we went, the Vancouver Island Health authority had issued a caution for the water. It didn't deter us,... More

If you want some time on the water - - with simple, easy access; this is your place. Explore the little islands and coves and beaches right in front of this beautiful little town. Choose a calm warm day and - - "well you'll see why the locals call this Heaven on Earth."

I had fractured two bones in my foot (3rd and 4th metatarsals) and was advised by my doctor not to go paddle boarding until fully healed. Sea legs would not honour their Groupon and let me redeem it after I was healed- even with a doctors note!

Sealegs Certainly honours our Groupons! The groupon deal in question expired August 30 BUT the groupon can still be redeemed after the expiry for the FACE VALUE of the groupon! For instance if someone paid $22 for a rental groupon, they can still redeem $22 towards a rental. Our business has been open 7 days a week, 10 hours a... More

The staff at Sealegs, were very helpful, and happy to be doing their job, which they did very well. There is so much to see in Ladysmith Harbour.. and it was calm and not intimidating to our novice group. We rented a double for the first time, and we were still talking to each other when we returned. It was... More
