We rented kayaks for two hours this afternoon. What a picturesque experience! I'd go back. My one issue is that there was no conversation about how to paddle or safety review. While we did have life vests with whistles, there was not discussion. That said, it was all great! Their prices are cheaper than the other places in downtown Victoria... More

Pacific Paddle Sports was the latest adventure chosen by our employees as a company team building experience. Our initial contact was with Chris, who was extremely helpful in explaining the different options available, suggesting our group come dressed in layers to prepare for any weather, and then setting up our 3 hour guided tour. Upon arriving at the Brentwood Bay... More

I was addicted from the first day. I met Peter, the first time I went there. He set me up with a great boat. E.J., one of the guides, also took the time to inform me about the tides and write down a schedule for me. When I came back on the Sunday, Neil was there to pull the boat... More

I keep rediscovering how great Brentwood Bay is. The pacifica Kayaking location is that true 'West Coast gritty working dock' feel that I have come to love over the expansive concrete floating runways. Staff was great and accommodating.
