My husband and I booked a three hour tour as first time kayakers. Our tour guide was Aaron who was knowledgeable, safety concious, and all round great guy. We started out well with a father and son also joining us, these two kept venturing off on their own despite kind requests to stay with us. We were doing well when our boat flipped. With Aaron's guidance and patience we both got back in the boat. While we were trying to get back in Aaron asked the other pair if they would come over and just make sure his boat didn't flip and the comment was they weren't going to spend an hour doing nothing. You never leave someone in the water. I was appalled at these two. We ended up flipping again as the water got rougher. Aaron was both calm, professional and kept us safe. We were lucky enough that a boat had been called that there was trouble and they got us up on their boat. These people were absolutely a blessing, so kind and certainly saved the day. Poor Aaron trying to pull our kayak while we hung on was really a hard thing to do. We arived back at Rush and a young lady who worked for Rush was absolutely lovely, very kind and couldn't do enough for us. I would like to thank everyone at Rush. I would highly recommend them. To the father who decided it was better to leave us put everyone's lives into jeopardy. Hopefully you made it back safely to the dock.

My father and I booked a full day kayak trip and were surprised that we were the only ones booked for that day (private tour anyone??). Even though our numbers were few, our enthusiastic guide, Aaron, was a delight keeping us entertained with a stream of information of the area, conscientious guiding practices, and attention to our safety and paddling techniques. He filled every minute with adventure, love for the area, and even took us to spots to see our favourite locals - the harbour seals! Lunch out at Whiffen Spit was delicious and is was incredible to chow down in such a beautiful area. Thank you for the excellent time! If you are not a fan of tandem kayaks perhaps this is not the tour for you. However, even with our preferences for solo vessels, we understand it’s all in our best interests where safety is concerned and the tour was awesome anyways!

It was nice visiting with the folks at RUSH. They're very safety concious, and good for beginners. All the paddling was tandem, and on enclosed waters so there was no exposure to bigger water, which would have been nice. We did see seals, sea stars and anemones which were colorful. Good staff, but be prepared to sit in the boat for three hours without a break. Bring back support if that's a problem for you, as you never get out of the kayak..

Our guide Sam took us on an amazing adventure! We are all first time Kayakers but were made to feel confident prior to leaving. My daughter always wanted to see a sea star and Sam made sure that we'd were able to find some. He was very knowledgable and witty. On top of seeing some really cool sights we also saw a lot of life on the ocean. We saw herring, oyster birds, sea stars, jelly fish and probably close to 20 seals! We did the 3 hour trip and highly recommend others take in thr full experience. You don't have to be a professional kyaker, they will tailor to your ability. This is a must do if you want to experience the islands wilderness and beauty

To begin, the service and instruction for self-guided kayaking is excellent here. Location may not be the best as it is a bit distant for some to paddle to the more interesting spots. Boats and equipment seem to be in good condition. You're helped into and out of the boats at the dock so no need to get your feet wet. Watch for tides as this part of the basin can become a big mud flat at the lowest tides, with not very nice odours to accompany.
