Frequently asked questions

Our kayaks are doubles. We do have a few singles but they are not readily available and must be requested in advance.
No, this tour is geared toward beginners. It's more for sightseeing, relaxing, and enjoying the beauty of the area.
There are always possibilities to see a variety of wildlife such as whales, eagles, orcas if we are lucky, and many more.
Yes, you can bring a backpack. The kayaks have storage holds, but if you prefer, we do have a storage place onshore to leave backpacks.
The physical limitations are minimal. It's a fairly easy paddle and if at any point you can no longer continue, we can take you back in our follow/safety boat.
It really depends on the weather. It could be 70 degrees with sunshine and blue sky's or it could be raining. Check the weather the day before you tour. To be safe, dress in layers that are easy to put on and take off and bring a light rain coat.
The age restriction is 12 years of age (Depending on capability) but we are flexible if the parent is willing to paddle for the child if need be. The height restriction is 6"6 and the weight restriction is between 270 to 300 depending on build. Beyond this height and weight, it's harder to fit into the kayak.
You could get wet if it rains and possibly from paddle strokes. We do our best and provide spray skirts to help with keeping your legs dry inside the kayak and ponchos for rainy days. We recommended that you bring a thin rain layer just in case.
