My wife and I did the AM 3h kayak tour and had an awesome time. Ian was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable and helpful throughout. We were even lucky enough to see 2 Orcas! Would definitely recommend.

Twenty minute Ferry ride to Bowen Island on foot (didn’t drive car onto ferry), and as you approach the Island just before docking, Bowen Island Sea Kayaking is right there. All so convenient. Cute dock with a taco and ice cream place plus a sandwich shop. Both of which we enjoyed. Brent was great. Ian, our guide was a great soul, and very personable. Kept us safe and comfortable. We had a marvellous time. Perfect weather conditions. Just the right amount of excitement out on the ocean. The few Sea Lions we saw were a treat. Highly recommend.

We had a great time kayaking with our instructor, Ian! Ian was very patient, friendly, and knowledgeable. As a beginner, I was feeling a bit nervous but Ian was really encouraging and helpful. I would recommend this group to anyone looking for sea kayaking in Bowen Island. You get to go out pretty far, it's a beautiful area, and we saw three seals!

What a great experience. It felt very remote and away from the madding crowd! Brent was a great guide.

The trip was amazing. My partner and I really enjoyed the tour and Ian was really informative and helpful. We had a good chat along the trip. We took 3 hours shoreline PM tour, and unfortunately, after the first hour, I got seasickness. Luckily, he had a ginger candy that helped me a lot. Gonna do a different type of tour one day!
