Looking for the best Victoria Harbor Kayak Tour with the best view of Victoria’s picturesque harbor waterways? Jump on one of our harbor kayaking tours. During this relaxing tour, you’ll get a chance to see the city up close. Seaplanes, ferries large and small, whale watching boats, private yachts, fishing vessels of all sizes, tug boats and barges – and in the background, the BC Legislative Building and the historic Fairmont Empress.

After meeting and greeting all, you will be provided with a paddling orientation, which will include the features of the kayak, personal paddling equipment, group safety protocol, and the strokes that will make paddling and maneuvering the kayak enjoyable. For an additional .00 fee, demo one of our Werner carbon fiber paddles!! The tour will make several stops at fascinating landmarks, with the guide detailing the storied history of each stop. If you’re feeling like you want to sample some of Victoria’s legendary seafood, bring along your wallet for a brief stop!

You may also encounter eagles, herons, cormorants, river otters, seals and seagulls —this tour has it all! From this unique perspective, your guides describe Victoria’s historic waterways by pointing out the locations and buildings that make up the downtown and the working harbor. Bring some cash along for a stop at some of the best fish and chip eateries you will experience. Depending on the weather and the harbor traffic we may choose to stay on the upper portion of the harbor known as the Gorge Waterway!

Kayaking requires some upper body strength and endurance. If you are lacking this, it is rarely a problem as we don’t paddle huge distances, and usually folks get by quite well with only occasional minor muscle aches. However, if you feel you could use some upper body conditioning before your trip, exercising with light weights can be quite helpful. Concentrate mainly on shoulder strengthening exercises, focusing on endurance rather than strength. It's a good idea to bring a retainer strap for your sunglasses, sunscreen and/or a sunhat, and comfortable shoes with low heels. Feel free to bring along your camera to snap shots along the way! Dressing in layers for outdoor activities is the best option.
