Derrick: Very friendly and helpful staff, fantastic location with a very easy dock/ramp to get in and out of the water with.
Shawn G: Consistent, positive service. I took my first sea kayaking lessons here. They are very knowledgeable, relaxed and safety conscious on the water. I've followed up to use their rental services multiple times for practice sessions. I usually call ahead to reserve a kayak. It's always ready for me and I'm on the water in no time. The inlet itself is a relatively calm place to explore or practice with many beautiful spots to take in.
Takuma: So Friendly and awesome!
I definitely have to give a five star review to pacifica paddle sports!
They have some of the best scenery with access to Todd inlet ,McKenzie Bight, Henderson point, and much more!
Walking in to the Sea kayaking place can be reached much easier by parking by the ferry terminal and walking down the path to the right at the end of Verdier.
The Guides are also super awesome! So Friendly and awesome! they are super knowledgeable and spend most of their time on the water exploring the inlet for more amazing things to show you.
Office staff and dock staff are also super wicked being some of the nicest people I have met in Adventure tourism.
Shawn D:The best kayak rental experience I have had
Cindy: Sunset and Fireworks Tour - First time kayaking at night, but I felt very safe with professional guides when the sky was getting dark. It was peaceful paddling during sunset and watching fireworks in a kayak was magical. Cookies, including home-made gluten free pieces, provided by Pacifica Paddle Sports, warmed every paddler's stomach and heart.
I would recommend this activity to those who would like to try kayaking at night.
Olga : We love coming here as a family. Super friendly. Reasonable prices and lots of fun as a tour.
Dominic: Highly recommend a kayak rental. Great views of the bay and easy to navigate on your own. Prices are very reasonable.
Alan: We did the late night bioluminescent paddle through the bay. Our guide (Ted) was a perfect host and took great care of us... and there’s nothing like watching glowing circles rippling through the water around your paddle in the inky darkness. Memorable, fun and easy on us novices. 🙂
Becky: My husband and I recently vacationed in Sidney, BC, and thoroughly enjoyed our kayaking tour around the Swartz Bay Islands. Our guide, Nolan, was spectacular! He knew so much about the sea life and interesting facts about the islands making our trip both fun and interesting. We really appreciated Nolan’s regard for our safety while making sure we had a great experience. We highly recommend Pacifica Paddle Sports!
