It was a beautiful day in Sidney - just perfect to use our coupon. Thank goodness for Marcus, the fellow who works the dock and handles the boats! He deserves a raise because he makes it all work.

We found "A Paddle in the Park's" add on groupon for a very reasonable price of $40 /per four hours per person plus a 4 hour tax fee. It was also nice as well because we were able to book a spot the day before the day of kayaking. Marcus was helpful on the phone and helping us organise the... More

For someone who had never been kayaking before, I was a bit nervous before hand, but after spending the afternoon with our tour guide Marcus, I instantly felt better. He was very professional and made sure our group was comfortable before heading out on the water. The weather was beautiful and the water nice and calm- perfect for an afternoon... More

Wow I couldn't believe how flaky this company is. My fiancee and I took time off to have a special day to spend together and booked our 4 hour kayaking tour. We received an e-mail confirmation the day before saying our booking was set and we were so excited. We drove up from Victoria to Sidney, got there right on... More

My Fiance and I were planning a local getaway for our Anniversary and have always wanted to give kayaking a try. I purchased a local deal voucher for a kayak rental through A Paddle in the Park. The description and fine print of the voucher indicated that they offered tour and rental services to paddlers of all experience levels and... More

Twelve of us went on Saturday, September 20th for the inner harbour tour with MARCUS. It was a perfect day with calm and warm seas. Marcus quickly got us ready, showed us how to paddle and then off we went around the harbour. He gave us talks on nature and sea life. We had a great time and would highly... More

Our group of 12 had an excellent trip with Marcus who was a wealth of information and very reassuring for the nervous nellies among us (namely me). He made sure that the group stuck together as there were some stronger paddlers that got ahead of the less experienced. We all enjoyed our kayaking experience and would highly recommend Marcus as...

We had our four nephews aged between 9 and 15 coming to stay and thought it would be fun to take them kayaking. I called this company and spoke to the owner Melissa about availability and what would be required of us. She advised that we would need an adult for each child, parental sign-off and she at that point... More
