First Class Service!
Sarah was great to deal with, as we managed logistics with some friends from Australia. Changes with dates, gear rentals and other details all handled with patience, elegance and grace. The gear we rented was also excellent - well looked after and in perfect condition. We especially appreciated the quick response times to messages. She also helped with arranging camping plans (Seaview Campground in Tahsis on a long weekend).
Conrad did an efficient job of the driving - always punctual and professional (even on his birthday!). We have used water taxi services all over Vancouver Island, and Shorebird is one of the best.
Thanks for the support and expertise!

We had a fantastic experience with Shorebird heading out to Yuquot. Great skipper (Konrad) and despite the somewhat spartan conditions we arrived within the hour. Saw masses of sea-otters and whales rubbing behind the church on the beach. I can recommend Shorebird for a great outdoor-experience without all the bells and whistles which can sometimes be annoying while enjoying the scenery. Thank you!

We used Shorebirds to transport us from Tahsis to Flynn's Cove on Nootka Island. Our dealings with them were extremely efficient. They showed up on time and could easily accommodate 6 of us with kayaks and luggage. They were also extremely flexible when we had to change dates because of one of our group getting COVID. Very friendly people and we will definitely use them again.

On three different occasions (July -2021, 2017, and 2016) four of us have used Shorebird Expeditions to transport ourselves, our kayaks and gear into the Nuchatlitz/Nootka areas for 16 day trips. Each trip has come together seamlessly from the time of booking to the time of our return.

Many thanks to Sarah for our booking this year and to Harvey our awesome boat guy for our ride to & from. Excellent!

I can highly recommend Shorebird Expeditions for their water taxi service. I used their service to get my hiking group to and from the Nootka Island trail for an amazing one week adventure in the wilderness. Sarah was a wealth of information, friendly, and patient. Both our drivers were friendly and kind. The ride to and from our trail heads were spectacular. I hope to use their service again for a kayak adventure. Thank you Shorebird for making our time with the wolves possible.
