Preferably clothing – but we don’t judge. Ok seriously, if possible, we suggest athletic clothing appropriate for the weather. Ideal kayak clothing is fast drying and moisture wicking. A long sleeve shirt is always a good choice for sun protection. We also suggest you wear sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses and a hat — but we’re not your mother, so it’s your choice.
Victoria Kayak is very happy to host group tours and rentals. We have hosted Girl Guides, Stags/Stagettes, Birthday Parties and Team Building evens to name just a few. Our location in heart of Victoria is a perfect meeting place for all. For groups of 7+ persons please call 250-216-5646 or email info@victoriakayak.com for a group rate and to book.
We think kayaking and kids go together like water and ducks. We even have a special kayak that carries two people plus a small child (under 4 years old) making it a triple kayak! We have life jackets (PFDs) for children and babies and find the duration and sights along the tour route engaging enough to keep them occupied. Pre-teen children can easily paddle a double kayak with an adult while children 14 years and older will be able to manage a single kayak.

We Are Dedicated To Our Customers & Product

Simply put, we thrive on making Victoria Kayak the most fun you can have on the water.

Our convenient location near the Empress Hotel and the British Columbia Legislature means you are off to a historic start the moment you push off the dock. And because our adventures start and finish at our floating dock right beside the Flying Otter Grill you will have a great place for a bite to eat or a pint of local beer (after the trip).
Because of the very nature of kayaks we take advantage of the shallow waterways and “back alleys” to stay out of the bustling harbour traffic and close to nature.
The Victoria Harbour is full of marine wildlife. From the majestic Blue Heron to Harbour Seals and their pups, our kayaks will put you in position for an unsurpassed view.
We stop every few hundred meters to discuss the sights, so our tours aren’t the least bit strenuous. Why not give your legs a break and let your arms do the work?
Because the only thing you have to fear is fear itself… and sharks. Just kidding!
Our tours take advantage of the stability of easy to paddle, ocean going kayaks. You will be outfitted in a life jacket (PFD) and given a thorough safety briefing and paddling instruction before departure from our “practice area” adjacent to our dock. Our outstanding location means that when the weather in the outer harbour is rough we can switch directions and proceed deeper into the sheltered waterways of the inner harbour.
We are a locally owned and operated family business and every customer is important to us. We need you! Your patronage supports our community and our local suppliers. By choosing to support locally owned businesses, you help maintain Victoria’s diversity and distinctive flavor. Thank you.

“My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic introduction to sea kayaking this afternoon with a patient and encouraging guide. This is a great way to get a different view of Victoria and get up close to the aquatic wildlife (we saw seals, heron, otters and jelly fish…oh my!).”

Had an awesome trip today at an amazing price. Joanna is awesome and knowledgeable, and made me feel right at home. Spend 2 1/2 hours out on the water in beautiful weather, would fully recommend to anyone!.

Great guide and a fantastic trip to seal island. Lots of things to see including a seal that swam over to say hello!

Wonderful experience paddling with my 8 year old son for his birthday. Not sure how but they managed to make the sun shine on a rainy day. ;)
Our guide took the time to make the trip fun, easy and educational. It was worth every penny!
