    Richard, Lindsay, Micheal and Jamie were incredible! The tour was incredible, we were able to spend so much time with Orcas and really get to watch them in the wild and take it these beautiful creatures. We also had an opportunity to see an incredible humpback several times. I would highly recommend the sunset cruise because I also got the change to take some amazing sunset landscapes. Would do again and would recommend!

    Loved that we saw orcas out of season. They were having their own party. Coming back we saw the sea lions lazying on the rock. Such an awesome experience

    Two adults, one teen and a twelve year old. Had lots of fun. Solved the wishmaster with 4 minutes to go.

    Took us a bit to figure out what we were doing. Used the hint book and asked the hanenaster for help twice.

    Now we are ready for the next adventure.

    We did a wonderful paddle from Stewart Beach in View Royal to Cole Island where we were treated to a great talk on the history of the island as a munitions store by Charles- the “seventh Earl of Cole Island”. From the care that Adil and Jacob took of our family to the very informative talk from Charles, a great evening was had by all five of us. We look forward to another tour with the Paddle n go team soon, you really could not do better!

    Once a year we go kayaking on my partner's special day. My partner's contact recommended the guided kayak tours in Victoria. After perusing the reviews of different companies on google maps, we picked a company within walking distance and with good start times. We really enjoyed our nearly 3-hour adventure on the water. The kayak tour guide Robert was super helpful with all sorts of tips for us visitors like nearby running routes, great restaurants, and things to see. Guided was especially helpful in navigating the harbor traffic and learning interesting tidbits and stories. We'd definitely book with Kelp Reef Adventures again!

    We participated on a tour Oct 19th,2023.
    This was booked about 3 weeks out. BC tours firstly were very communicative prior to the tour.
    I spoke with Sadie who was very helpful and welcoming when I thought I may be 5 mins late as it’s recommended to arrive 30 mins prior to departure.
    Jim our Captain was extremely friendly , knowledgeable and really made the 3 hour tour a great experience. If I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    My only recommendation would be to have an option to sanitize and clean the suits that are used by everyone as it’s mandatory for safety as it serves like a life saving device in the event one is to fall overboard.

    What an absolutely amazing experience, with people who are so passionate about their environment. We were lucky enough to have Jake and Sophie to explain the tour and to shed some light on the marine wildlife in the waters we would be in. We had incredible weather that made the day even more special. We saw a pod of Orca feeding, which was just incredible to witness, followed by humpback whales, lots of sea birds and the seals and sea lions that call this place home.
    The tour was for 3 hour, but it felt like it was over far too soon. The staff all made the trip such a remarkable experience with their enthusiasm and knowledge of the wildlife,along with the history of almost losing these amazing animals in the past. They explained the efforts to reintroduce the wildlife to the area, this has been a huge success, but there is still more to do.
    Orca Spirit Adventures supports organisations to benefit the environment by providing a percentage of the ticket price to them. They are also 100% carbon neutral. Their philosophy is sound.
    We would highly recommend adding this company to your itinerary if whale watching is on your agenda.

    Great value for money - $60 each for a private group of 4. Boston and Chloe were great and made us feel totally safe and were fun to be with. Highly recommend adding this to your itinerary

    Even our Captain said "we found ourselves in a phenomenal situation" with five humpbacks around us, all in a fish feeding frenzy. At one point one Humpback was beside our ship with his mouth open, then swam underneath us and out the other side. It was an experience filled with awe. Captain Andrew is experienced and knows about whales and other sealife which he shares with the passengers. Don't hesitate to book with Five Star.

    Great time doing the pyramid themed room. We've done a few escape rooms before and this one was one of our favourites. The staff members on duty was awesome and our little group had a great time!

    We had a private sailing with my company, I took my 3 years old toddler on this 82 years old Norwegian sail boat, she absolutely loved it. She even got hands on a real steering wheel.
    We captured sunset views on the water on the way back from Sooke. There was a cruise ship about to depart by the seawall, so we saw people were cheering and waving hands to us from the giant ship which was such an unexpected joyful moment.

    My family of 4 came to visit for a family friend that had recently moved, as a birthday surprise we signed up for an escape room called “Prison Break”, amazing experience! Great for all ages! We where a group of 8, with 4 kids. Finished with 15 mins to spare! Started out afraid but really fun after the initial fear of being “locked” in a room!
