This tour does not exist anymore. I drove an hour to the start location and the business said they don’t offer the tour anymore and have no idea why Trip Advisor is still promoting it or collecting money for it. The money I paid for the trip didn’t even go to the company. The company tried to contact Trip Advisor and they told them that I had to contact them and ask for a refund. I contacted Trip Advisor and they said that they needed to hear back from the company before they could issue a refund. The contact information on the posting is not even a valid number or email as the business has switched to new owners since this tour last existed. Isn’t booking through Trip Advisor supposed to be a secure way to book tours and not get ripped off? But it appears as though Trip Advisor is collecting money for tours that DO NOT EXIST!!! I want to be very clear that this is not the company’s fault, they were appalled that Trip Advisor collected money for this and they were very helpful to try to help me get my refund.

My father and I recently booked a fishing charter with Sunshine Kayaking and we had a great day on the water. Loretta was professional and helpful getting us organized, and Greg is a very knowledgeable captain. I was a novice at salmon fishing and Greg provided a lot of helpful information and guidance throughout the day. I really enjoyed his approach, as he doesn't simply do everything for you, allowing for a hands-on experience.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for a fishing charter and we're already planning our next trip with them. Fish on!

My family booked a 4-hour sailing tour with Sunshine Kayaking for my husband's 30th birthday and it was a wonderful time! Our captain was very friendly and knowledgable of the area. The sailboat fit our group of 5 adults and 2 children comfortably (though more than this may be a tight fit on this particular boat so be sure to ask about the different options). We had to start late because there was a lot of traffic on our way from Sechelt to Gibsons and they still gave us the full 4-hours which was very nice and unexpected! The kids got to jump off the boat into the water and go swimming which they really loved. It was an afternoon to remember and my entire family had a great time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to enjoy some fun on the water and sight-see the area in a unique way!

Very quick and easy process to rent Kayaks. Dave set us up with the Kayaks, sized us up and gave us good ideas on where to paddle to. He was very thorough with instructions which we appreciated a lot. It made our trip great. They kayaks were great as well!

Had a great 4 hour fishing outing with Captain Greg Suidy. Greg was a skilled and patient instructor who coaches his guests in landing Chinook and other fish species. Some tour operators, we were told, will catch and land the fish for you to have the ultimate kodak moment but Greg's philosophy is to talk you through the landing process. In doing so, you can expect the thrill of a lifetime if you are a novice sport salmon fisher as we were. The boat was spacious enough for our party of 4 adults and one child and the fishing equipment was first class and easy to handle.

Greg's wife Loretta manages the booking and the retail storefront and was a pleasure to deal with. Her friendly manner made for a stress-free experience and her preparatory material and links to the DFO licencing site made it easy to purchase the necessary licences for all on board.

We thoroughly enjoyed this 4 hour excursion with family members and would highly recommend booking your fishing excursion with Sunshine Kayaking.

We enjoyed our time kayaking with Sunshine Kayaking!

The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They gave us excellent beginners level instructions and ensured that everyone was comfortable, prior to leaving the dock.

Highly recommend them if you are looking for some family-friendly activities to do in Gibsons!

Very accommodating and friendly office crew. Managed to fit us in at the end of the day and made 4 teens very happy as that was our last activity on our short 2 day visit. We will definitely be returning to do some more kayaking and would highly recommend Sunshine Kayaking to all families that visit Gibsons.

We chartered a boat for 12 people for the afternoon. Greg went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Mid tour, we anchored the boat near Gambier Island where we were able to go for a swim in calm waters - refreshing on a hot day. We all had a blast and would highly recommend this. Kudos to Greg for his exceptional service!

Firstly, Gibsons is a wonderful town, with great views and friendly people. It therefore came as a bit of a surprise when we experienced such rude behaviour from the staff at Sunshine Kayaking. The older woman attending to us acted like she did not want our business. Despite this, our group carried on and did enjoy kayaking in the strait, but that is more because of us not letting this individual ruin our afternoon. The company did not seem busy at all that day. I wonder why?
