    A group of us did this back in September. It was a great group thing to do, we had such good fun. Mainly though, I cannot commend the guides enough. They created a fabulous fun atmosphere and were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our guide in particular made our trip! We hope to be back next year!

    We have enjoyed adventurous Jet Skiing in other parts of Canada and live outside the Greater Vancouver area. We have we have rented Jet Ski’s annually from Vancouver Water Sports for the last 3 years and always look forward to our annual Sea-Doo Adventures. From the moment we arrive at check-in the staff are friendly, experienced, and efficient and the orientation process is very streamlined with an emphasis on safety for everyone. Once out on the water our adventures are always filled with wonderful, unexpected sites of local marine mammals and stunning scenery that are second to none on the West Coast. Not to mention that intoxicating feeling of ultimate freedom. Thanks to all the staff at Vancouver Water Sports for all your hard work, and we look forward to seeing you all next year!

    My son and I really enjoyed our kayaking afternoon out of Jericho Ecomarine Paddlesports. We rented a tandem kayak and explored Burrard Inlet for a few hours - what an amazing way to experience the area with an ultimate ocean view also checking out Point Grey and the fantastic homes being built along the waterfront. The staff at Ecomarine were awesome, they had gear and equipment ready and helped us plan our afternoon with the changing weather as first time paddlers in the neighbourhood.

    Windsurfing is something I have always admired but felt intimidated by it. I’m turning 40 this year and it felt like the right time for me to try it out. So this summer I took the first two basic windsurfing lessons and I had a great experience. Jonathan, my instructor was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and he was very thorough. I’ll definitely continue on my windsurfing journey and I’d definitely recommend Windsure (and Jonathan) to anyone curious about this sport.

    Great experience, humpback whale came right up against the boat, hung around for over a half hour. Very exciting. Captain Bruce did a great job staying in the right location, and Pastel, our guide provided lots of interesting information throughout
    the trip. Would definitely recommend.
