What an amazing adventure! Immediately the staff made us feel very comfortable getting into the water, they took us all over the waters to a beautiful waterfall and even through some caves. We learned a lot about the ocean and even ate some sea creatures....More

We were both inexperienced sea kayakers and were worried about the level of difficulty. The tour guide made us feel safe and were very informative. We had a great time seeing the sights from the water and highly recommend checking them out!

After travelling half way across Canada Stan Cook tours cancelled at last minute because it might be a "little cool and uncomfortable". I can bundle up or was even willing to switch to the afternoon trip. Wasn't even called back to discuss options. As you...More

Went out for a 2 hour paddle with Stan Jr. Very knowledgeable guide and quite the sense of humour. Through the little rapid, into the tunnel and bays with all the whales feeding on capelin. A must experience while in St. John's.

These folks run an excellent kayak operation. We were out for 3 1/2 hours (hihgly recommend if your bladder can handle it). Plenty of time for a fun, safe double kayak trip, a running commentary from Stan, one of four guides who kept us safe....More

We did the two hour go and tow in the morning. It was sunny and windy. Most of the time we paddled near the shore but we did have to cross the bay and it was a little rough. I highly recommend doing the go...More

We joined the 3.5 hour "go and tow" tour, which is a great idea because it allows the group to go farther out and avoid retracing the route since they bring everyone back in a motorboat. What we liked: The equipment is good and the...More

We did the two hour go and tow and had a fantastic time. I'd recommend the go and tow option as it gives you more time to get out towards the open sea. Over the course of the tour we paddled a decent distance and...More
