I have taken many lessons with Patti and Yves, the most recent being a surf course at Tofino. They are such fun instructors, but also knowledgeable and good teachers. I highly recommend Go Kayak for kayaking instruction. (And I have taken lots of lessons from lots of different people!)

Yves and Patti obviously love to kayak and to teach and they are unfailingly positive and encouraging. I felt very safe with them, and that they empowered me to be safe in the future as well.

It was delightful to paddle with Patti and Yves. They are both perceptive, highly-skilled, adaptable and detail oriented-teachers, which doesn't stop them from also being relaxed, approachable and funny. This makes for a really positive (bilingual!) learning atmosphere and just an overall great day learning rock gardening in Port Renfrew. I can't wait to learn from them again!

What's not to like? Yves and Patti are not only knowledgeable professionals, but the energy, joy and humour they inject into all their clinics is unmatched, and all the more appreciated because of the down-to-earth people that they are. Attention to safety, pragmatic detail, group dynamics, individual risk tolerance and sensitivities, as well as a dedication to everyone having an enjoyable learning experience make Go Kayak one of the best training options anywhere. You will always come away with a memorable experience, and applicable skills. Thank you!

Yves and Patti were incredible - they put together a fun customized course to prepare us for an upcoming trip. They were patient, entertaining, and clearly love what they do. Highly recommended!
