Our family had no prior kayaking experience but we had an amazing time on our Orca camp trip. Our guides Damon, Adam and John were great - especially with our boys of 13 and 15. The location is out of this world and even if there are no orcas about, it is well worth the visit. We were incredibly spoilt with our sightings though - both from the shore and whilst on the kayaks. What a magical experience! Thank you Wildcoast!

I've had the best 4 days ever! The guides are so sweet, helpful and especially very good cooks The food was delicious! How spoiled we were..
We saw the orcas several times even incredibly close to our kayak! But even seeing humpback whales, pod of dolphins passing by, sea lions, hearing the orcas passing by at night,.. it was just perfect.
The camp was such a nice place to stay. The tents were spacious, the little terrace at the kitchen tent had such a great view, the hot tub, the sweat lodge, the fresh caught salmon at dinner,.. do I have to say more?

Thank you guys for everything! I'm coming back for sure!

I don't know how 5 full days of kayaking in the Discovery Islands could have been improved. The guides were enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and anxious to please. The location - around Read Island was beautiful with scenic, comfortable campsites. The food was exceptional in general, astounding for a camping trip. (Guides had been trained to prepare the meals by the chef who planned them!) The cooking and camping gear was extensive but the guides did ALL of the hard work, including hauling the kayaks way above the tide line for overnights. In addition, they would respond energetically to any extra requests.
I don't know how the company was able to provide such pristine equipment. The kayaks were in perfect condition, the tents, sleeping bags, pads, etc. were very fresh, as if new.
