Elaine and I, along with two neighbours, booked a 5 day trip to the Nuchatlitz area on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Amber was our guide. It was just a fantastic experience, Amber paid close attention to our skill levels and got us to expand our range of abilities. And we had fun as well! Thank you, Blue Dog

We came to the island from Calgary to do some ebiking. Our friends talked us into an ocean kayak tour and we’re glad they did. We booked with Blue Dog Kayaking back in August and took our tour the week of September 13. We met Evan, our guide, in Mill Bay. Evan was knowledgeable, patient (we are relative new comers to the sport), and ver pleasant to talk to. Our tour was great and Even was very forthcoming with knowledge on wildlife and the area we were in. All in all it was money well spent and we would definitely book with Blue Dog Kayaking again. Thanks Evan.

I've just finished a 5 day Paddle Canada Level 1 Skills Instructor program with Blue Dog Kayaking in Mill Bay. I can't say enough good things about the top-notch instructors working with Blue Dog. My program lead was Blue Dog owner Dave Nichols -- he's a kayak whisperer with an uncanny ability to take an apprehensive learner and turn that person into a confident paddler / instructor. Dave's team all chipped in to ensure my success, even volunteering to help me 1:1 with something I was struggling with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dave Nichols and Blue Dog Kayaking for sea kayak training (beginner to instructor)! BTW -- Blue Dog is also the Nigel Dennis Kayak (SKUK or NDK) dealer on the west coast so they've got a huge variety of boats to try while on a course, expedition, or day paddle.

Just got back from an AMAZING Quadra Island (Discovery Islands Lodge) Level 2 training 3-day session with Blue Dog Kayak instructors Amber Champion and Alana Morrison. We surfed in Surge Narrows-what a fantastic experience! I can't say enough about the instructors - they are so competent, fun, and wow, do they help build confidence in the class participants. I felt so safe with them in all the weather and sea conditions we went through. A trip of a lifetime - and I would love to do it again! Janice Henshaw
