    Beautiful Kayaking Trip

    We had such a wonderful time kayaking with our guide Kevin. He was very informative about the wildlife and history of the area. He was also very kind to our nephew who needed a little extra attention. This is one of the most beautiful kayaking trips we have ever taken. We would do this again.

    Super Surf Lesson !

    Kendall was a fantastic instructor for our 17 year old daughter. She was able to ride waves within a very short time frame and he was fully supportive from start to end of the two hours. He is educated in Marine Biology so he spends his life in, on and all about the oceans! ...We might just have a surfer girl on our hands!

    This is a must do!

    My experience first started with a great interaction when booking. Tony was so awesome making sure my son and I were able to get scheduled. It was our first time kayaking, and we had Chase as our guide, who was awesome! Didn’t realize that it would be just us and a guide, which was a nice surprise. He was professional, kind, and so knowledgeable about everything we went by. The area was not busy at all, and Chase even took us to an area that had no other people, which was so peaceful and relaxing. My son and I had such a great time, and can’t wait to do it again. We would definitely recommend booking with this company!

    Private Guided Tour of Salmon Rive Estuary

    My kids and I so enjoyed this kayak tour. Our guide was great. He knew all sorts of information about the area and the wildlife. He helped spot eagles, an otter and Harbor seals. We stopped at a beach and found sand dollars. Any experience level of kayaker would love this tour. They allowed me to change the day of the tour when our travel plans changed. A family run business that I would recommend to anyone.

    Private Guided Salmon River Tour

    Highlight of our vacation! Our tour guide, Kevin, was very knowledgeable in answering all of our questions and curiosities. Definitely loved the idea of a private tour for our family of five, more personalized experience. We have kayaked before and found this tour very manageable. We even made it to the mouth of the ocean and explored the beach!
