My friends and I went on the 3 day, two night Discovery Expedition. All three of us were new to kayaking. I had never kayaked on the ocean previously and had minimal experience on a lake. From the time I started to enquire about the trip to the start of the excursion Quadra Island Kayaks was prompt in responding to emails and answering any questions I had about our upcoming trip. We were given a packing list which outlined everything we needed to bring. Having never done anything like this before we had lots of questions and were given the opportunity to speak with Ella our guide so that we knew exactly what to pack before leaving home. The evening before our trip we met with the owner Cassandra who looked through everything we packed to ensure we had all of the necessary supplies. The company also provided some additional dry bags for packing. If you are bringing your own from home, smaller bags are recommended as they can easily fit and fill any gaps inside the kayak compartments. While I didn’t expect the ocean to be flat calm we did experience some windy conditions. Ella made sure we stayed on track and provided expertise on how to maneuver through the waves and tidal flows. We saw seals, a humpback whale, sea stars, urchins, beautiful sunsets and a full moon and stars that were so bright it was unbelievable. Ella prepared all of our meals. They were tasty and quickly devoured after paddling. Waking up each morning to a beautiful ocean view and hot and hearty breakfast was a real treat. The sense of accomplishment at the end of the three day trip was huge. Thank you Ella and Quadra Island Kayaks, for such a memorable time. I will definitely be back!

Did the evening kayak with our guide Rich. He was incredible and very knowledgeable always putting our safety and fun first. Seen seals and lots of marine life. Rich was always keeping us informed of geography and marine life as we past areas. Delicious snack provided on our beach stop. The company was very up on cleaning standards and all equipment had been sanitized properly.

On a recent visit to Quadra, we dropped by to see about renting kayaks for a couple of hours. The woman working mentioned that they had space that day on their 2pm 3 hour guided tour. As neither of us are very experienced kayakers, we thought that was a fantastic idea, so we signed up. Our guide Rich was wonderful. He told us that the morning tour had encountered some orcas, and he was hopeful that we might too. Apparently the orcas heard us, as they dropped by for a once in a lifetime experience for us! it was pretty incredible and awe inspiring seeing these beauties effortlessly glide past us. Rich was very knowledgeable about the area, and gave us some great tips for kayaking in general. Would 100% book another tour next time we are on Quadra!

An excellent full day on the water (10-4 pm) with a terrific young guide Nick. Lots of sea life visible with humpback whales spouting, a colony of seals checking us out, eagles, herons, starfish, etc.. lunch was a tasty quinoa salad, veggies on the beach... Nick was humourous & knowledgeable and provided great information about the area.. very open to answering all your questions... the company is a small family operation which I highly recommend when on Quadra... give them a shot...

My family and I just completed the full day Kayaking trip with Nick and Richard. It was the highlight of our trip to Quadra Island. The guides were knowlegable and friendly and took us through a seal colony as well a two beaches n the nearby area. The lunch was quite good and healthier than I was expecting from a tour. It was quinoa salad with Humus and veggies. More than enough to keep me going for the entire day. Next time on Quadra Island we will be returning. Maybe to so the sunset paddles.
