We did the 4-day base camp tour with Bree and Liv. It was an awesome trip. Bree and Liv are a wealth of knowledge and we learned so much from them. Bree is very knowledgeable in safe navigation of the area and we felt comfortable the whole time. The food was amazing and the camps were great. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Had a wonderful two-hour paddle in Johnstone Strait with Liv and Mia (Mila?) as guides. I'm not an experienced paddler but they did everything to ensure we felt safe and comfortable. We were fortunate that it was a clear day and saw seals, a porpoise and eagles. I definitely recommend!

I just completed a 4 day Kayak trip and have to say it exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Brie, was the key to our experience on and off the water. Her knowledge of the area, tides and animals made each day interesting. Her passion for the history of the peoples of the region, past and present, added a whole new dimension to our trip. While we saw whales, dolphins, seals/pups and sea lions, she also made sure we didn't miss what was going on in the tidal pools which had a lot of creatures to behold. Our meals were fantastic and varied.

From the moment our trip began on the docks at North Island Kayak and we were in Bree and Heather's care, we were in the best hands. From their deep knowledge about local ecosystems, Indigenous history of the area, kayaking and how to teach it, safety, weather and climate of the region, to gourmet cooking and hosting skills, these two blue ice out of the water every single day. We loved the base camps that are setup, they are expertly crafted and extremely thought out. the heater at 'Squatch was a big hit! Could not recommend North Island Kayaks or Bree and Heather any higher!
