Cam, Charlotte and everyone we met at Halfmoon Sea Kayaks was wonderful.

If you want to go sea kayaking in Sechelt I'm sure many people could provide that, but if you want to go sea kayaking in Sechelt with a guide team who will actively try to selflessly enrich your experience and inspire you, go with Cam and his crew!

My partner and I were on a personal trip and Cam generously helped us with a Portage, despite the fact he doesn't formally offer that service and it was a busy day at his shop. He was very knowledgable about the area and didnt hesitate to share his knowledge.

The guide team clearly has a high attention to detail, and are safe, responsible, and fun kayak guides; high quality human beings too. The shop was very welcoming!

Thanks Cam & Charlotte! Hope you're having a lovely summer :)

Thank you so much to Cam and Charla for an evening we will never forget.

Our party was four adults and four teens (13-15). We joined three other single paddlers for an amazing evening of breath-taking views, wildlife spotting, a moonlit paddle and playing with bioluminescence.

Cam and Charla were fantastic guides. They ran a helpful orientation ensuring everyone was set up for a safe and enjoyable evening.

As we paddled Cam and Charla engaged with each participant to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. Midway, we stopped for a very elegant snack and watched the sunset. The trip home by moonlight was truly magical: gliding on velvet water and learning about bioluminescence.

We all would 100% recommended you take a trip with Cam and co. We know we’ll go out with them again!!

Conveniently located, pickup process is a breeze. Straps were provided to mount the kayaks to the car. We went to North Thormanby Island, the departure point for which is about a 15 minute drive from the rental. There is a lake right next to it, which is another option for a trip. We were given maps and suggested the best place to leave from, and were given tips on the points of interest along the way. A 24-36 hour rental is suggested for such trip :) Thanks a lot!

We had an amazing experience doing the evening tour at Halfmoon Bay with Charla! She took us to all the cool spots where we could see seals, sandpipers, and bioluminescence in the water. A picnic was prepared for us while we watched the sunset. Charla was very sweet and attentive. Overall an amazing experience and I'd do it again! Thanks for the magical evening!

Cam was extremely helpful to make our anniversary day in Sechelt very special. We flew in with Harbour Air so Cam arranged for us to use their bikes to peddle around town before our kayak rental. The double kayak was a new experience for both of us and he provided just the right amount of advice and directions.

We had a fantastic half-day tour with Charla as our guide. She took us into some quiet coves and we were able to see a lot of sea lions, starfish, and birds. We aren't that young anymore but had no issues in our tandem kayak.

We had an amazing half day kayak tour with our guide Griffin. He was so knowlegable about the marine life and we enjoyed learning about the area! We are new at kayaking and felt safe the entire time! We also appreciated that Griffin took photos of our day and shared them with us.
We saw so many sea lions, birds, fish and an otter. Loved our kayaking experience! Thank you Griffin and Halfmoon bay sea kayaks!!

My cousin and I had never kayaked until a few days before we visited Halfmoon Sea Kayaks Coastal Adventures, and we were hooked! So a few days after our first experience we visited Bev at HSKCA and she was FANTASTIC!

She went over kayak how-to's, and made sure we were properly fitted into our PFD's. However, I think the thing that impressed us the most was the safety talk and demonstration that explained how we would get back into the kayak should we somehow fall out! Yes, you would think that all kayak rental places go over this... They don't...

Our experience with Bev and Halfmoon Sea Kayaks was great and we can't wait to go back and check out some of their guided tours! Thank you Bev, two thumbs up!!!

Thanks for the review Elizabeth, It's always good to hear people commenting on our extra efforts with safety and orientation. On very rare days it all pays off (see the review titled "Amazing service against life and death...") Hope to see you again, Cam

The owner doubles booked us, and then over charged us. We had booked 3 double kayaks for the long weekend...we had wanted double kayaks for stability, storage and power when against the wind or current. He gave us one double and the rest were single because a bachelor party was coming even though we had booked weeks in advance. He then tried to charged us for the rental of the more expensive single. He also charged us for a person who was not able to make it...even though he did not provide us with the requested double kayaks. Kayaks which were given to another group. He refused to budge, and made the whole experience unpleasant. I would recommend renting from elsewhere and driving the kayaks past 4 mile. There really wasn't anything interesting before 4 mile, just a lot of boat traffic. 9 mile beach was an excellent camp spot and the old bible camp had an amazing beach. The whole trip was spectacular...just dealing with the owner was very unpleasant.

We appreciate the opportunity to respond to your version of how things transpired over this holiday weekend. Our response won’t be including another apology. The owner did not double book you. The owner did not over charge you. The owner did not try to charge you for the more expensive singles. Upon noticing the error made by one of our staff members we immediately contacted the person who booked the kayaks for your entire group. This adult was the only contact we had regarding your reservation. After explaining our error and suggesting the substitution of singles for the tandems, with a very sincere apology, this person very amicably agreed that this would be an acceptable solution for your group. No additional actions were pursued, as the solution was easily agreed upon. Upon your separate arrival and realization of the changes, you expressed your disappointment in the change, at which time we explained, apologized and then offered to contact our other reservations to free up another tandem kayak for you. Unfortunately they opted to decline for their own valid reasons that were similar to yours. You agreed to use the singles for your trip and appeared to be satisfied with our efforts. Charges were kept to the original booking price of 4 tandems (8 people). After your group returned we all worked to figure out how the remaining charges were to be calculated considering the no show, while you continued to focus on how to capitalize on us not having a tandem for you. Halfmoon Sea Kayaks is a family owned seasonal business of 20+ years. We have always given it our best to provide an experience worth remembering to all of our guests. Your group stepped up and helped us work through what otherwise may have been a very difficult problem for us. We are very happy to hear you all had a good time. Thanks again to them for that and have a great Summer! “Life involves other people and it is a compromise” – Kevin McCloud

We rented a double kayak for half a day, booked online and paid deposit. The kayak was an ocean kayak, nice to paddle and pretty new. It was a very hot and calm day. Unfortunately it was quite boring paddling around with nothing very much to see except float plane and boats. There are a lot of jelly fish at the launch area. We kayak at three places during this trip to Sunshine coast, this is the least enjoyable one. It is really just a location thing, no fault of the rental company. Would prefer the Egmont adventure rental where we saw a colony of seals up close and personal, and the pedals and paddles where we kayak to the “ aquarium”. They also require a minimum of four hours rental so personally we will stick to other kayak rental company.
