We had a Monday tour scheduled that was met with rain and 50 degree weather. We had limited time on the island and decided we would push on regardless of weather. To our surprise, our guide was very prepared for this weather. He provided gloves, hats and other gear to ensure our trip was still enjoyable. He allowed us to... More

This was a great trip around the islands near Deer Harbor. Our guide kept it interesting and adjusted to our interests and ability. The trip was full of wildlife and beautiful sights and exceeded our expectations! Definitely the company to pick!

Had an amazing kayak starting at Deer Harbour. Helped by a beautiful day and calm waters, we saw loads of wildlife and got heaps of interesting information from our guide (who is Jim Carrey's long lost twin or brother). I would highly recommend this!

This was my first time kayaking, and I was fortunate to share the kayak with Corey - our guide. There was also a 4 year-old on the trip, and he was amazing and making sure she could see and experience as much as possible. I feel like a pro now! He gave excellent tips and knows the area well.

Seriously great trip- our tour guide was so nice and knowledgeable and even took us out in the rain since it was our only day there. We saw lots of animals (the seals were adorable) and it was great to be out on the water. Super professional too!

We had spring weather, a bit windy, but doable. So glad because it is SO great to get out on the water!! Beautiful area. We are older now and somewhat experienced kayakers but needed help getting in/out of kayak. Paddling was fine! Corey was a great guide -- helpful, friendly, good safety instruction, knew the area and wildlife! Shearwater knows... More

My family ( two teens, two parents, and a grandparent ) took the half day out of deer harbor in mid April. The guide, Corey was amazing. His energy level was comfortable and engaging. He felt like he truly enjoyed being out with us! One teen was a little uncomfortable in the kayak with pins and needles. He worked her... More
