As grandparents, we took our 14 year old grandaughter for a guided kayaking tour with Nici. The kayaking experience included some closeup views of wildlife including seals, blue heron, otter, starfish and jellyfish. Our grandaughter was absolutely thrilled. We found Nici to be very knowledgeable and professional, yet friendly and engaging in dealing with both the instructions and safety aspects... More

We went out on a guided sea kayaking tour with Nici from Victoria Waterfront Tours last Saturday, and it was fabulous. This was our first time kayaking, and it definitely did not disappoint. We did the tour out to Seal Island and Split Rock, which we loved. Nici was very friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. We felt very safe and comfortable... More

I don't even know where to start. Nici is an amazing person. She is so fun, and knowledgeable, and great, and interesting; her excitement is contagious. Helen and I had the best time ever with her on our sunset tour. We saw harbor seals and even otters. One harbor seal was very curious and interested in us and decided that... More

My husband and I spent the weekend in Victoria for our 5 year wedding anniversary. He thought it would be awesome to take a sunset kayaking trip on one of the nights. He found Victoria Waterfront Tours on google and we were both happy to have chosen them. I have never kayaked before and Nici was great about making sure... More

Some old school chums joined me for a week in Victoria recently to celebrate our 60th birth-year. I've always wanted to try sea-kayaking, but my friends were a little concerned about the physical demands and safety issues. I had several talks with Nici on the phone prior to our arrival and she was always so patient, gentle and encouraging. Four... More

Excellent tour to Seal Island. Nici was great as a guide, and because I had misplaced my camera, even took several pictures for me and emailed them to me before I event got home! I didn't want to kayak alone (I'm a flatwater paddler, and I don't know anything about tides), but Nici also rents kayaks, and sent out a... More

Took the one-day introduction to sea kayaking course. It was a great day and Nici is a fantastic teacher/tour guide, making even someone a little nervous feel confident and comfortable. Would certainly recommend to anyone new to kayaking. Will be back to rent a kayak and get more experience on the beautiful waters around Victoria.

Everyone in your group will enjoy a guided tour around the Victoria waterfront with Nici of Victoria Waterfront Tours. Our first venture was on a beautiful calm fall day when seal sightings were plentiful. Our second trip with Nici featured a delicious picnic lunch on a lovely rocky beach. We spotted curious seals, saw oystercatchers clutching shellfish in their red... More

Nici was very friendly and helpful. Her company is very well prepared and has proper equipment. We all needed and enjoyed the tutorial before actually getting into our kayaks out into the water. We practiced various maneuvers in the kayak taught to us by Nici before we were ready for our trip to Seal Island. We didn't see any seal... More
