Thanks for a great review! It sounds like you went on our very popular Chocolate Beach Tour, which is a 3 hour tour, that goes by so fast that most people feel like it is a shorter tour. Time flies when you are having fun!!! I wish you magical adventures for this coming summer! More

This trip from start to finish (this includes my initial phone calls about ferry times and whale watching times) was amazing! This adventure company offers people an exciting way to encounter Orcas and explore the surrounding Gulf Islands.

We had an excellent whale watching trip with the Salt Spring Adventure Co. Saw a Humpback whale, Seals, Sea lions and various coastal birds, add to that a beautifully scenic trip around the southern gulf islands and a very knowledgeable captain and first mate and you have yourself an awesome time. Highly recommended!

The team at Salt Spring Adventure Co. welcome you with enthusiasm and warm smiles. A wonderful way to start our Ganges Inner Harbour paddle on Thursday, August 25th, 2016.

This was a fun day long trip from Ganges Harbour to Prevost Island. Our guide, Jo, was engaging, knowledgeable, and very safety conscious. I am an experienced paddler but my daughter, a beginner, had no trouble keeping up. The scenery was absolutely gorgeous. It was the highlight of our trip to Salt Spring. It was well priced for the great... More

Our rental process was fine, but the bikes are not in great condition. Lots of hills on the islands, so not having a bike with gears in good shape was trying. They worked, but with noise. Shouldn't have to worry about a rental bike breaking down when on vacation. Note: we are cyclists, so the hills and traffic were fine... More

We have done quite a bit of kayaking although not sea kayaking elsewhere and were really looking forward to this 3 hour kayak trip to chocolate beach; having been told that the zodiac trip that evening was not going to run we decided to focus on the kayaking.

Picked up on Pender Island right on schedule. From the all weather survival suits provided to the condition of the Zodiac it was clear that safety is something they take seriously. It was a fairly calm day on the water and the ride was almost silky smooth - and more importantly, VERY quiet. Our captain and guide Blair was very... More
