We so enjoyed this relaxing morning paddle around the beautiful Brentwood Bay. This was one of the highlights of our time in Victoria! EJ our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. We saw many seals and lots of pretty moon jellyfish in the calm clear water.
My husband and I purchased the package for 2 hours of kayaking and entry to Butchart Gardens with Pacific Paddle Sports. They were very helpful and professional, and we had a good experience on the water with our knowledgeable guide, after which Chris offered to drive us over and drop us off at the Gardens. Great customer service, very friendly staff, and all equipment was in good shape. We recommend this outfit to anyone interested in kayaking in the area, and if you can get a visit in to Butchart Gardens awesome, even better!
We wanted to get away from the cruise ship shore excursions and this day trip was perfect. The company responded very quickly to our questions and we knew exactly what to expect. Chris picked us up from the cruise ship, after kayaking drove us to Butchart Gardens and then drove us back to the cruise ship when we were ready. He even stopped at the grocery store for us to pick up delicious Canadian chocolate bars. Our kayaking group was four people three first-timers and was enjoyed by everyone. Butchart Gardens was breathtaking and definitely worth the trip. I highly recommend this excursion and hope to be able to spend time with this group again in the future.
We selected the Brentwood Bay Kayaking Tour because we wanted to experience the natural beauty of Canada and enjoy the adventure of kayaking. I was worried at first about how we would reach the
Paddle Sports Pacifica launch site since it is 25 minutes from the pier. No worries! We were gifted with Chris who not only came to get us at the cruise pier but made sure that we were safe and happy throughout the tour, took us to the Butchart Gardens and then back to our ship. The entire team of guides and owners were phenomenal. Special shout out to Sam our head guide and Damon the assistant guide who as a member of a local First Nation tribe was able to tell us stories of the history of his people and speak to us in his tribe's language. Butchart Gardens was amazing and way to big for us to cover in one afternoon. We were delighted with our stroll through the many lovely displays and our lunch in the coffee shop. The tour was somewhat strenuous me late sixties and needed some help when strong winds made progress slow but so worth the price. We will never forget the incredible kindness of the staff and crew and the experience was all that we had hoped and more!
Much is written about Butchart Gardens and it certainly lives up to the hype but the real gem of this trip was the kayak guided tour for the two hours prior. Kayak tour was breathtaking and so informative as to area sealife. Paddled near the boat launch of the gardens too! Want to go back asap!
It was a great experience. We arrived at Pacific Paddle Sports and went out for the two hour tour. The guide was. A college student studying marine biology and he shared all kinds of neat information with us an was able to answer all our questions. It was a beautiful area, we went at our own pace, learned a lot, and much more. The gardens were also very peaceful, beautiful and a great experience.
