Prepare for Adventure

It gets cold out on the water (trust us!), so we recommend windbreaker jackets, sweaters, long pants, and closed-toe shoes. Avoid cotton garments on your kayaking trip, and ensure to bring a change of socks.

It’s also a good idea to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a tight-fitting hat, binoculars, a camera to capture some memorable moments and, above all, your sense of adventure! For your kayaking trip, you will be provided with a dry-bag to store electronics. The dry bags are not always 100% effective, so feel free to bring another layer of protection from water to store your electronics in.

The boat used for this adventure is not wheelchair accessible. If you require assistance, please call us to book.


Do tours run in all types of weather?

Tours operate rain or shine! Safety is our priority and, in extreme weather conditions or high winds, adventures may be cancelled at the discretion of our qualified crew. We will be in touch should this be the case. If one or both of your tours are cancelled due to weather you will receive a refund for the tour/tours cancelled.

Are there age and physical restrictions?

This package is suitable for all over 8 years old. Physical restrictions apply for the kayaking portion of this package. Our state of the art kayaks have some sizing restrictions to ensure all of our guests’ comfort and safety. For this tour, the kayaks support a total weight 529 lb (240kg) for a two person boat. The cockpit seating measures 35.5”L x 17.3”W. Please contact us directly if you have concerns regarding fitting comfortably in our kayaks.

Will we really see whales?

Yes! There is a high chance of seeing orcas, humpbacks, and other types of whale on your whale-watching tour. Our year-round whale sighting success rate is ~95% (averaged across all of our adventures) with chances being even higher during summer months. During your kayaking tour, expect to see other wildlife such as otters, seals, sea lions and bald eagles. Viewing whales during a 4 hour kayaking tour is very rare.

What happens if we don’t see a whale?

This adventure is covered by our year-round Whale Sighting Guarantee. In the unlikely case, we do not see whales on this adventure, you can join us on another whale watching tour. This guarantee is valid for a lifetime!

Not applicable for your kayaking tour.

Are there bathrooms on the boat?

The boat we use for this tour is equipped with two airline-style washrooms.

Do passengers often feel seasick?

No, our boats are custom-built for whale watching with passengers in mind. Captain and crew will also do their best to minimize the impact of the sea. However, if you are prone to seasickness, we recommend you purchase non-drowsy Gravol from a pharmacy prior to your adventure with us.

Are there snacks or beverages on board?

Complementary tea, coffee & hot chocolate will be available on board of your whale watching tour. Light snacks (chips, cookies, chocolate bars) can be purchased with CAD cash. You can also bring your own snacks. Please feel free to bring your own snacks, and ensure to bring a refillable bottle of water on your kayaking trip.

Do I need to make a reservation?

Reservations are definitely recommended. Adventures often sell out and we don’t want you to be disappointed.
