This was a last minute decision and I am so glad that I did this! We did a day paddle that, in total was around 3 hours of paddling. It was an easy kayak across the Stewart Channel to Link, Mudge and Gabriola islands. Along the way we saw some wonderful wildlife that was highlighted by our two guides, Kim... More

The scenery plus wild life and overall experience was a 10+. To top it off Kim's wife prepared a delicious home made lunch. We would highly recommend this to anyone no matter... More

We did a day tripper tour with Wildheart Adventures and had the great pleasure of having Kim as our guide. He was gracious enough to order up perfect weather for us and his wife made some great food for our lunch. We had a group of 6, none of which had ever kayaked before, and his instructions were very clear... More

Kudos for our brilliant guide Daye Cooper, the excellent food you provided, and the sights and sounds we experienced. Six days paddling and camping around Broughton Archipelago and Johnstone Strait. Serendipity when we (son in law Felix, friend Ben, me, and guide) encountered as orca pod that came right past and under us on the fifth day---one of many highlights... More

I have just had an incredible expedition with WildHeart adventures, kayaking for 6 days with 2 friends and our guide Daye. WildHeart set up and delivered a fantastic experience that I believe is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We saw Humpback whales, Orcas, seals, porpoises, eagles and even a bear on one island shore. Our guide Daye was superbly... More

I highly recommend the Day Tripper kayak trip out of Nanaimo with Kim of Wild Heart Adventures. The experience was a lot like visiting an old friend who wanted to show you around and share his favorite things about where he lived. Kim was very knowledgable and treated us to some great sights on and off the water, including a... More

My sister and I joined the Broken Group Islands tour - and it was fabulous. We had an excellent guide, Sue, who set a great itinerary, was experienced, nice and knowledgeable, and fed us extremely well - including desserts from her local bakery! We toured several of the islands, saw seals, eagles, deer and the intense beauty of the islands.... More
