Private Events and Weddings Testimonial

My husband and I are experienced sea-kayakers (we own our own boats) and this was a special day exploring the waters of the Salish Sea. While Discovery will only take you out in double kayaks, the gear they provide is quality. Our fiberglass double was comfortable and clean, the spray skirts fit well, the PFDs and splash suits were clean and well cared for and the dry bags were also clean and non-smelly. Our guide Adam was extremely knowledgable about the local tides, winds, flora, and fauna and he was up for paddling as much or as little as we were (we were for paddling!) It wound up being a private tour for us and an incredible day of seal, eagle, jellyfish, starfish, and dolphin viewing. We saw other Discovery trips heading in as we were heading out and you can see they run a professional operation.
