We took a kayaking g tour with Richard in April around Newcastle Island and it was absolutely brilliant! Richard was fantastic, he really put us at ease, was a brilliant teacher and knew so much about the local area. He is also a lot of fun and we laughed a lot! The wildlife and scenery on the tour was beautiful, we even saw raccoons which was a highlight for me!
We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the area, we would give 10 stars if we could!

Fantastic day with Richard, generously sharing his knowledge about the abundant wildlife, interesting geology and historia of the Islands. We had the opportunity to see Manny animals as raccon, otter, seals and many bald eagles. The life in the tidal zone is abundant, and Richard patiently showed me many interesting lifeforms and their way of living.

Thanks for an amazing day!

We had an unforgettable tour! Apart from the fact that the weather was fantastic and we saw seals, sea lions and sea stars, Richard was a warm, open and pleasant guide who additionally told us a lot about the vegetation and history of Vancouver Island. Absolutely recommendable!

I highly recommend Richard as an instructor and guide. He came up with the perfect 4 hour itinerary for our kayaking skill levels. I was able to implement his instructions and continue to practice it. A sign of a good teacher! He reviewed strokes, self-rescue and assisted re-entry and then we had an introduction to eddies and currents paddling up Dodd narrows.

Our family of four with two sons age 10 and 13 had a fabulous morning with Richard, exploring Saysutshun, Newcastle Island from Nanaimo. Richard was extremely knowledgeable about the island wildlife, history and geology; it was fascinating! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a trip with Richard and Island Romer.

Richard is an awesome guide who is knowledgeable and resourceful! I went on this tour with my son and husband and the view was amazing around the island. We learnt a lot about the ocean/geo diversity in a way that it was interesting and fun! Although my family was all beginners to the sea kayaking, Richard was very patient with us and encouraged us to be successful. I highly recommend this tour even to the beginners who want to enjoy the beautiful ocean view up close!

We had a fantastic time with Richard on a 16 KM/7 hr guided tour around De Courcy Island. He provided us with a top-of-the-line tandem Seaward kayak and gave us all the necessary instructions and safety equipment so that we felt comfortable for a full day on the water. We saw some beautiful wildlife and you could tell that he enjoyed sharing all of his knowledge about the area and the aquatic life that we encountered along the way. It was a perfect day and would highly recommend Richard and Island Romer Adventures for anyone looking for a high quality guided kayak trip.

I'm a visitor from down under, and highly recommend you do one of these tours by Richard at Ròmer adventures. The day spent kayaking out to deCourcy Island and around is amazing. The knowledge of the land, sea and culture told by Richard was interesting and informative.
