We went on the 3 day, 2 night tour of the Johnstone Strait in September, and cannot recommend AWE enough. From the start, Wes was super helpful and organized, and answered all of our questions quickly and with lots of details. Our guide Alicia was amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife we saw, and taught us so much about the area’s history, geography, and ecology. We ate extremely well, and the food was varied and delicious. The kayaking and camping gear was in excellent condition and was all very comfortable. We set up camp in a beautiful spot, and enjoyed our time at camp as much as we did our time kayaking. We had so much fun, and can’t wait to go back for another trip!

Alicia had such a great time you your group, Jackie. Your trip was the last one for 2020 and was a perfect "end of season" treat for Alicia as she had a total blast. Thanks for choosing us for your adventure and for the wonderful review. We can't wait to head out there with you again soon!

AWE with Wesley Gibson at the helm provides great gear and local knowledge for your Broughtons and beyond expedition. We rented 2 expedition kayaks from him for 2 weeks and safety gear, all of it was top notch. Wesley provide local conditions knowledge before we headed out. Great outfitter and great staff.

This was hands down the best trip that I have ever been on since being in Canada. The team at AWE were amazing to deal with, had thought of everything and were so knowledgeable. We did the 3 day trip and all agreed we ate better food on these 3 days than we usually do at home! The wildlife was spectacular and I’ve never been so comfortable camping than with all of this top quality gear. 10/10 already recommended this trip to multiple friends for next summer!

Thank you so much for your spectacular review! We are happy that your trip was memorable, the food was tasty and the gear was comfortable. Alicia is an incredible cook and we feel the same way when she takes up the chef role on shore! All the best in the future are we hope to see you again soon.

I am very impressed by At the Waters Edge Adventures! Wes was very knowledgeable and his cooking skills were exceptional! The equipment was incredibly clean, well maintained, and even luxurious for camping. This was a phenomenal 3-day kayaking trip, even for an amateur kayaker like myself. I cannot wait to go on my next adventure with At the Waters Edge!

I can't recommend Awe strongly enough. Wesley and Alicia were a delight and did everything possible to make sure that our complicated group of 10 paddlers had the best possible outdoor experience. They were knowledgeable, patient and adaptable, all of which was essential, in guiding our group of differing levels of ability on a magical and majestic tour of the Broughtons. We saw an abundance of wildlife, including Orcas from perhaps 25 metres away, and learned so much about the area, its history and inhabitants which added so much to the experience.

Your "complicated" group was a total blast, Colin! Any groups made up of family and close friends is always a good time and your group was that and more. Thanks for all the great questions and never ending laughs, especially during group decision time. We hope the rest of your summer went well!
