Kye and her kids were great! They set my wife and I up for a wonderful day kayaking Otter Bay. We really appreciated the safety tutorial Kye gave to us. We have been kayaking many times, but this was the first time an operator taught us what to do if things go wrong. Otter Bay is a beautiful location for a day trip from Victoria. I'm looking forward to going back!

While staying at Poet's Cove Resort & Marina we wanted to have a kayak for our use for a couple days. Problem solved with Dog Mermaid as they will deliver (and pickup) their equipment (kayak/canoe) to your location for as many days you like.
Excellent service & knowledge of their equipment & the area.

A great morning of starfish, otters, eagles seals and views! A great way to enjoy a couple hours with a knowledgeable guide (Johnny) with a focus on safety with a great briefing and teaching. I’m new to this sport and after a few minutes away we went!

We rented a canoe for a paddle from the marina at Otter Bay, Pender Island to Roesland Park, across the Bay. Mermaid Dog were really awesome to deal with, and the gear was excellent. We will be back, one day.

My 9 year old daughter rates this camp as "the best camp she has ever been to". She learned a variety of paddling skills: paddle board, kayak and canoe. She learned about sea life, ocean currents along with fun, friendship and teamwork. I will definitely put her in camp again next time I am in the area.

What a way to "sea" life. We very much enjoyed our experience with DogMermaid. We rented a kayak for my husband, daughter and I to explore Otter Bay. Staff were very kind and helpful, especially when it came to making out daughter comfortable with her first time in a kayak. The equipment was all excellent and the office/launch location is very convenient as part of Currents at Otter Bay facilities and the ferries. We would highly reccomend to others!

Hired canoes from here. The service was great and very friendly. Would definitely use again. Myself and husband had an amazing canoe trip around Otter Bay and saw lots of wildlife. Lovely way to spend the morning.

My daughter and I wanted to try paddle boarding for the first time. Kye and Johnny were extremely helpful as we were complete newbies to the sport....it was more fun that I imagined, the boards were great, my 10 yo had it figured out in no time and we were out on Otter Bay, a picturesque cove with beach and marina....so much fun! Thanks Johnny and Kye we can't wait to go paddle boarding again.

Thank you! We can't wait to have you back! I may even let Johnny know about your compliment. But we don't want it to go to his head. Lol.

My wife and I had been stressed out and this simple, beautiful paddle board excursion was just what we needed. The waters were so clear, and to see seals and otters up that close was magical . If you can spare an hour or two Dog Mermaid is easy going and very inexpensive. Thanks
