At the end of the road

A wonderful fishing trip
We had a fishing trip with Captain Mike on July 28, 2018. Mike is a very experienced captain. He is a very nice guy. We caught the first salmon only after 10 minutes we left the harbor. It is a 10 ponds pacific salmon. Then we caught some rock fish and others. 4 hours trip is a great memory. 3 adults and 3 children are so happy. Thank you, Mike! Enjoy everyday!Wow, thanks for the review Ray! We are thrilled that your group had such a good time fishing with us. Hopefully the eating of the fish was as enjoyable as catching them! :)

An amazing experience!
My daughters and I enjoyed renting kayaks this summer. The girls spotted the paddle boards and after enquiring, they were able to try them out. They had such a great time and my older daughter wants to get her own now! Thanks for being flexible and allowing us to have such a memorable experience- a high light of our time at Pacific Shores!!

Nice family 2 hour trail ride
We were a large group and had 2 instructors Jessica and Mathieu. Very nice and helpful.We all beginners and felt comfortable in our 2 hour ride through woods.Just a suggestion to make it more exciting is to pass by water stream. Only thing missing.Overall very good experience and outing.

I booked a kayak tour for my travelling parents. It had been quite difficult with other operators, but JD was the consummate professional and made it such a lovely experience. Gave me really great advice on which tour would suit my parent best, and showed me how to book and pay for the tour even though I’m in Australia. He has rave reviews from people who’ve been kayaking or SUPing with him on Facebook and google reviews, I can’t wait for my parents to enjoy their birthday present with him.

Memorable and inspiring
Months later we still remembered every detail of our kayaking trip from Tahsis to Esperanza. The impressive view along Tahsis inlet when starting the tour, the beautiful wooden kayaks gliding through the water, the rugged steep hillsides, the starfish, seals, sealions, eagles and humpback whales, the unique atmosphere of paddling through the morning mist and the magical feeling when it cleared off and the sun came through, the waterfall, the sunset, the stars at night. If the idea of vacation is to get away from the everyday life and explore new places, then this trip was at the very heart of the idea. We learned interesting things about the past and present of the region and its people, we enjoyed a great, fresh and healthy selection of food, we had fabulous views, and we felt inspired. As the unexpected highlight, a young humpback whale suddenly appeared when we entered Tahsis inlet on our way back, and decided to surface once more very close to our kayaks. We held our breath at the sound of the blow, and realized that what we saw was actually only a small fraction of the animal. But even without this surprising encounter, there would not have been the slightest doubt that the tour was worth the money. The organisation and guidance was very professional, and also left sufficient flexibility to adapt to our pace and our wishes. For example, when we arrived back to Tahsis but still felt in good shape, we did a little paddling detour into the Leiner River estuary, which gave a very nice contrast in terms of scenery and served as a perfect ending. We will definitely do another tour with One Tree Paddles in the future!
