AWFUL EXPERIENCE - TERRIBLE customer service, BADLY Disorganized and RUDE - we called 1wk ahead & booked + sent email to confirm., drove 3h and arrived on time - no one was there! Many calls & 1h+ later, told to SELF Serve by owner.*Do NOT recommend*

Not a very good experience. The owners are not very responsible and the most of the kayaks were in poor shape.

Booking process was complicated and confused After booking a time we were pressured to change it to fit the company's schedule Never ended up actually using the groupon because of poor organization and weak customer service Will not recommend to others

A poorly organized company, unhelpful, discourteous. Poorly maintained equipment and kayaks. Being a Groupon customer was clearly a disadvantage.

Awful customer service experience. Incredibly unhelpful and did not show any interest in having me as a customer.

Bring 2.00 for the groupon tax. Arrive a bit early to sign waiver. 4 hr trip is long, even in pristine conditions

The owner/operator had a bad attitude and didn't want to be there. She even asked if we would just like to take the kayaks out on our own and not have the tour that we bought and paid for. It wasn't much of a tour, she was terrible. I felt bad because I bought the Groupon for my boyfriend as his birthday present and it really wasn't a "fun" experience.

From Our Editors

Kayaks were originally built by hunters hoping to sneak up on their prey. On A Paddle in the Park Kayaking’s guided tours, passengers use the boats for a similarly furtive purpose, sneaking up on wildlife such as harbour seals and mute swans—but nowadays, the goal is usually to snap candid pictures of the diverse flora and fauna.

Photography is encouraged on the scenic tours, which explore the archipelago of gulf islands near Sidney, British Columbia, surrounded by clear shallows, kelp gardens, and plentiful wildlife. The varied tours range from a sunset trip, which showcases views of Mount Baker, to a full-day tour that highlights impressive rock formations rather than the most common rock formation, a pebble stuck in a shoe's heel. Kayak rentals complement the tours, allowing for independent exploration, and lessons cover topics from paddling basics to self-rescue.
