was not hard, for a 60 & 70 yr old, and it was a lot of fun learning to dig for clams. These are huge clams. About 5 inches across. Paul is a great guide. He’s very laid back and has lots of knowledge about the area. The people on our tour were great to hang out with. Paul makes a wonderful clam chowder! Highly recommend going out with Paul. The little town of Victoria has some cute shops too!

We had a fantastic afternoon with Paul and Sarah from “By The Sea Kayaking”! The combination of kayaking and clamming was a definite highlight of our trip. We appreciated Paul’s knowledge base, enthusiasm, and his great cooking after the paddle, even accommodating my lactose-free need with his yummy coconut-milk based chowder. I would highly recommend this company!

Paul accommodated our short notice request to kayak. We left around 230pm and were back around 5pm. It was low tide, very calm waters, and we kayaked out to the Tryon Bar. We walked around, explored for bar clams, and enjoyed searching the sands for star fish, crabs, beautiful vistas, and more. All the equipment was in great condition and Paul was very knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend.

If the current is strong (borderline unsafe) perhaps warn a beginner paddleboarder before going out. This was scary and I have no idea what the safety plan was if we couldn’t get back to the starting point.

Went kayaking twice this week with my teenage daughter. Beautiful scenery and the people were very friendly and courteous. Could not have been better.

My husband, two children (7 and 12) and I partook in this sea kayaking and clamming adventure. This was one of my favourite things we did on our whole trip. The guide was great, very knowledgable, and the clamming was so much fun!! We found a lot of clams, I think the guide was impressed that people from the prairies were so good at clamming! The bonus was the delicious clam chowder that he made when we returned to the beach!

Left the shore at 4:00 p.m.... Just thought "we paddling straight out to sea"... then, there it was.... a sandbar. Stopped there, where Paul explained how to find clams. And then we were off. Everyone scattered to find clams. After getting approx. 30 appropriately sized clams, we paddled back to shore to make some chowder. YUM!!! Wonderful group of strangers to share dinner with. Paul was a wonderful guide & host!!!

The kayak tour was great. Clam digging was fun!! We were fortunate to have a nice group of people to share this experience. Paul was wonderful guide and host. The chowder was a good way to end the trip for dinner

I went out solo with a group including three tandem pairs, lead by Oliver. OLIVER was great, both mellow and aware. It was nice to meet a few people from different places and take yo the water together. I have kayaked a couple of times as had others... you bring what skilks you have or don't to it and are supported and encouraged. The waters are mostly calm.

If you leave your name, you will be contacted around upcoming trips and can also check the daily board outside the kayak building before the dock. These trips run more consistently than north shore ones which are more often cancelled due to winds.

I would do this again and felt like being a woman solo show was fine and normal, rather than commentary I received for showing up without another person or group to other activities. Instead, I was encouraged and i value that.

We scheduled the sunset kayak for our family of five. It was the highlight of our trip to PEI. We did not have much experience kayaking but we were well taken care of and the views were absolutely breathtaking.
