The staff was very friendly and helpful. They carried the kayaks down and sent us off. The sun was shining. Great paddle for the afternoon.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and for the songs as well, I'm happy to know more of the oral history of the area. Miigwech

The paddling experience itself was excellent. Some people have written about coming early to get parking, but that won't help you if there just isn't any parking to be had, as you should expect on any sunny summer weekend. Arrange to take transit or get dropped off. If Takaya has any sway with any of the people who make land use decisions, they would be well served to get themselves exclusive customer parking.

The employees working on sept 5 were amazing. They went above and beyond and were so kind when we ran into a hiccup. They were accommodating and understanding so we really appreciated it. Beautiful area to kayak and have a picnic afterwards. Concession was closed though. Great price and easy to reserve online.

Easy parking, great and helpful staff, interesting area. There are a number of directions one can choose to go, Small islands or beaches to stop and rest at, and many friendly people to just say "Hello" to in passing. Harbor Seals came to say hello and show off a bit...

Great location and staff. So much easier to get to, park, and get into the water than other operators. We will be back :)

The staff are all so friendly and knowledgeable. Was a very smooth, easy process and they were hustling to keep everyone on time. Will definitely return! They were happy to chat about where we could go and offer helpful information as well.
