Amazing 7 day kayak adventure paddling around West and East Redondo Island and thru Desolation Sound. The guides Dan and MJ were excellent; safe, very knowledgable, supportive and most importantly gourmet chefs. Scenary was spectacular, rugged unspoiled lush channels with soaring snow capped coast mountains views. Black Bear's, porpoises, seals a plenty, humpback whales, bald headed eagles, otters along the way. Highly recommended.

I’ve always wanted to do a kayak trip and booking through this company made it really accessible to get in and have a multi day experience on the ocean in a beautiful setting. I was fortunate to be with a group of 10 women that included family and friends. MJ and Alex were awesome guides, thoughtful, personable and caring. Alex did a fabulous job of providing us tasty meals, that surprised and delighted us with presentation and flavours! On my daughters birthday Alex went out of his way to make a layered cake in the back country with an outdoor oven that works on a propane stove!!! How cool is that?? Each day we paddled a couple hours before and after lunch, and I sensed the guides made decisions on our destinations based on the entire group not just the strongest ones. We camped in beautiful spots and were treated to two days of being able to snorkel which was memorable! I would love to return and do another trip that’s longer so we can get out further and possibly see whales. This trip whet my appetite!

This was our second adventure with Powell River Sea Kayaks. Our first was a 5 day vacation kayak adventure and only wet our lips to try something more adventurous. 71 Nautical miles (133 kms/ 83 miles) in 7 days. We went last week of June 2021. Weather was record breaking hot. Fortunately lots of swimming breaks. As for the experience. No disappointments. Desolation Sound and Toba inlet must be seen in person to truly appreciate the magnificent beauty of mountains rising 2000 metres directly out of the oceans. Wildlife was abundant. Seen many bears ( a couple of cute bear cubs), porpoises, Bald Eagles battling over fish at high altitudes and falling nearly into the ocean. The apex was a pod of whales that swam right below our tent on a high cliff and thrilled us with a display of full breaches just metres from our perch. Our guides Dan and MJ did everything to make this a most memorable experience. Catering to all our needs. The food was plentiful and even after 6 days still providing us with fresh, delicious meals that surpass many high end restaurants. This trip is not for the faint of heart. Some of the days were long (6 hours of paddling). If you are not fit or conditioned you may want to start with something easier. Many nights required wild camping, so being comfortable in the wild is recommended. PRSK will provide you with all required gear but we appreciated the option to bring our own personal gear ( tent, dry-sacs, sleeping bag/pad). All in all amazing value for the price.

What a fabulous experience! The booking was easy. The pre-trip information was accurate and thorough and all questions were answered in a timely manner. The kayaks and equipment were excellent. Our guides Alex and MJ cared about us and provided the most memorable experience. They were exceptional. The paddling pace was relaxing. We never felt in any great hurry. Every meal was a culinary experience. So much thought went into each meal. Delicious! I would highly recommend this company to anyone. The trip was amazing - thank you! Jane McAllister

I have now been 2 trips with Powel River Sea Kayak and found both of them phenomenal. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company. The first trip was in 2019 on their Eco Cabana (what I like to call glamping) trip. Kinghorn Island is a little paradise. We kayaked every day with guide Luke, exploring Desolation Sound, and had plenty of time left for swimming, paddle boarding, meditating, reading and watching sunsets. The food created by Chef Steve was extraordinary. We saw whales, dolphins, lots of seals and much more. The second trip was this summer 2020 and was one of their kayak vacation tours, where the guides take you to different places in Desolation Sound to camp, providing food, tents and pads. Again it was such a pleasure. The two guides, Kyle and Des were interesting, knowledgeable, and created the most amazing meals every day (I took as many pictures of the meals as I did of the scenery!). We were again blessed with the sighting of a humpback whale breaching just off the island we were camping on. I can't wait to go back in 2021!
