We had a great time on our Goat Island Tour. Our guide was knowledgeable of the area and shared great stories. What made me most appreciative was her patience and understanding with my unstable and deaf husband. She accommodated his needs and was perceptive with his abilities and skills.
thanks so much for a great tour and time together!

This is an excellent company to go whale watching with. Their staff are incredibly knowledgeable. We found a pod of 5 orcas quite quickly and followed them for an hour. We were then showed more wildlife like a bald eagle and seals. All the time our guide was very informative but also very concerned for the wellbeing of the wildlife that we were watching.

Fantastic time with Salt Spring Adventures. We did both a bioluminescence kayak trip and a whale watch. Both were great. Captain Zoe took great care of us on the whale watch and was super knowledgeable on the whales. Mikayla was terrific kayaking lead and both were fun.

Best kayaking night time bioluminescence tour experience you could ask for. Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable, funny and personable. If you want an outright wonderful adventure you should try this tour. We were in very capable hands with Wyatt and I give him and the experience a solid 10 out of 10 that was magical too, thanks Wyatt:)

We saw 4 Orcas and 2 humpbacks, tons of seals. a seal swam right up to our boat. Bald eagles, It was amazing!!! Andrew and Zooey were very knowledgeable. Andrew kept saying, Do you want to se....? and then took us to the viewing. Zooey was like a National Geographic guide. And we rode in a Zodiak!!!

It was the best whale watching anywhere!!!

We had such a fun time! Paul was our captain and he was great. He's a search and rescue captain as well as a tour guide, and has trained a lot in stormy weather. That training translated to a really fun time riding the wake and waves. He had lots of good information and stories unique to the area to share, and also allowed time for quietly enjoying the sights.

We saw a beautiful juvenile humpback off Saturna Island and stayed with it for quite a while, seeing it's spray and fin and then it's tail pop up when it went down for a deep dive. On our way back in we went to Anniversary Island, which was full of adorable rock sausages (harbour seals), a few early sea lions, and a variety of birds, including some damp and disappointed bald eagles who'd missed their last hunt.

Being out on the water gave a whole new perspective to the life we all live on land. It's really a different world out there and we treasured every moment. We were there in early June. Different times of year allow for different types of sighting, and I would love to go back a little later in the year to catch the orca hunts as well.

We went on a 2 hour kayak tour around Goat island. Our tour guide Wyatt was very knowledgeable and really made the experience for us. He taught us all about kayaking and also shared a lot about the animals and plants of the area. It was our first time kayaking and he explained everything very thoroughly and made us feel really comfortable. We were the only two on the tour and Wyatt allowed us to explore the area as we wished which was a magical experience. He also gave us some awesome recommendations for other places on the island to visit. I highly recommend kayaking with Salt Spring Adventure Company.

Two of us went on a 2 hour kayak tour. It was excellent, lots of fun, and Wyatt was an awesome guide! We were the only two on the tour, which was really awesome. We weren’t sure about going in the rain, but so glad we did!

My husband and I signed up for a bioluminesence kayak tour with Salt Spring Adventure. What an amazing experience all around. Our guide, Wyatt was very personable and really made us feel at ease, while kayaking at night. Wyatt was very safety conscious, and spent time teaching us the basics of paddling before we got into the kayaks. He made sure each of us wore our life jackets properly and helped each of us and the other 4 clients ease into our kayaks. Immediately upon paddling from the dock, the bioluminesence was evident all around us. As we made our way to Goat Island, Wyatt described the biological mechanisms that cause the bioluminesence and also the historical and cultural significance of Goat Island. We would do this tour again in a heartbeat! Worth every penny, for sure.
