Recently, we had the opportunity to travel within our BC Health Region(think Covid), to Galiano Island. While we were there, we booked an excellent four hour guided kayak tour with Gulf Island Kayaking at Montague Harbour. We had an amazing paddle with our very skilled and knowledgeable guide, Anastasia. Being on the water, you are able to access areas that you would not be able to explore on foot, and this helps you fully appreciate the impressive geological features of Galiano Island. We gained a whole new perspective on the sandstone cliffs along the shoreline as Anastasia pointed out all the plant life that clings to these massive cliffs. Anastasia was always quick to bring our attention to any wildlife or birds she spotted during our paddle. We were impressed to see our first mink in the wild, running over the rocks. During the tour, you also have the opportunity to paddle across to smaller islands and to see the beautiful midden beaches. At all times, we were comfortable in our double kayak, and felt entirely safe as we paddled across areas of open water. We would highly recommend booking a kayak tour with Gulf Island Kayaking, and we want to especially thank Anastasia for such a memorable, educational, and exhilarating adventure.

On a recent camping trip to Montague Harbour we decided to rent kayaks for 2-3 hours. We are experienced kayakers so didn't need a guide to go with us. Kayaks were in good shape but we asked to switch the half skirts they gave us for full spray skirts. Would recommend the full spray skirts. The company is easy to work with and the employees were super helpful. We have rented kayaks with this company before and they were excellent then as well. One small suggestion - put out signage along the road going into the campsite at Montague Harbour so visitors know you are open to the public.

This was our first time kayaking in a long time.We rented a double kayak. Ben was our instructor and he gave us a full lesson on the deck.He was so patient with my hundreds of questions and I felt confident for our 3 hour tour. The scenery was beautiful and we saw eagles,seals and a sea otter.I would definitely come back again.

A group of us did a 3 day/2 night trip with Chessy around some of the Gulf Islands. I cannot recommend this enough to anyone considering it. He did the best job of being our tour guide and nothing was too much of a hassle !! We visited a number of the smaller islands, places you wouldn’t normally see if you weren’t on a kayak. 10/10 from us Chessy !!
