We had gone to Victoria on a spur of the moment and came across this opportunity. My daughter (11) and I had never kayaked before and Ben was able to secure a double kayak for us for our 2 hour excursion. Oak Bay was the perfect place to go for our first time. Being a quieter location we lucked into being the only people on the tour that morning. Yippee!
Ben was a great guide. Supportive of our novice skills (especially when we got stuck trying some rock gardening (if I'm recalling the term correctly)), informative of the local area and the wide range of animals and other activities around the bay. What impressed me most was the enthusiasm and sincerity in the discussions and his descriptions. You truly felt that he just wanted to show off his love of the whole place and embracing kayaking!
Needless to say, my daughter loved it! Thanks so much, Ben. :DMore
