“During a recent visit to Ucluelet, we had an opportunity to go out with Ted on a kayak excursion. I'd been looking forward to getting close to the wildlife in this pristine inlet and we were not even remotely disappointed in the opportunity to paddle along with a group of California sea lions that reside in the harbor. Ted was a fantastic guide, and he and Tracy really make their guests feel really welcome. This was definitely a highlight of our trip.”

John, Maryland

“We had a wonderful time kayaking. We were lucky enough to have a personal guide, and had an enjoyable time paddling around the bay. There were lots of sea stars and eagles, and at the far end of the bay a mother black bear and her cub were along the shoreline looking for food. The guide was very friendly, knew alot about the local area, and set a good pace for the trip. The equipment was in good shape and the tandem kayak worked well since it was our first time on the water this year.”

Stuart, Calgary

“Well impressed, surpassed my expectations.”

Juan, Nanaimo

“Trip was unforgettable - because of amazing scenery and because of young, funny, enthusiastic, professional and people-oriented guides. Trips were very well organized, everything was easy, hassle-free and enjoyable. Majestic provided all equipment and gear in an excellent condition. Even smallest things like hats, gloves, sunscreen and bottles of water were taken care of. It’s an excellent opportunity to explore remote isles and see wildlife under supervision of knowledgeable and helpful guides, who take very good care of tourists, tell interesting stories and can answer any questions about the area. I want to say big thank you to the company owners Ted and Tracy, to Kevin, and the other guides and instructors for wonderful time we had with them. For sure me and my daughter will be back one day in the future to do a kayaking trip with Majestic - again! ”

Lada, Calgary

“Professional, organized, fun, friendly sea kayak day tour. ”My wife and I spent a week in Ucluelet, going kayaking on four, single-day trips with three different guide services. The trip to the Broken Group with Majestic was the best of the four trips we did. The two guides and boat captain were experienced and personable. Safety was #1, but they discussed the history and flora/fauna of the region as well, and it was evident they liked their occupation and liked being with people. We saw a couple whales, many sea lions, bald eagles, and seals. The sea lions' hunting/fishing/eating was very impressive. I would not hesitate to go again with them, maybe on a longer 4-day overnight trip. ”

“Ted was great with the girls, and with another guest who was a little nervous, very calm and reassuring, giving them some great tips and helping them with their paddling technique. It was all so perfect; perfect pace for our group and experience, perfect company in Ted with his expert guiding and extensive knowledge, perfect lunch eaten in the sea air on our 'own' beach. The result of the day was that my daughter has asked to go back for her birthday next year, except this time for the 4-day Broken Islands trip! Thank you Majestic, and Tracy and Ted, for an unforgettable experience.”

“Absolutely Amazing Experience”

Danica, Virginia

“Four of us took the 2 hour harbour tour of Ucluelet. We found our guide very friendly and took he obviously took pride in his job. We had previous kayaking experience so he accommodated for our skill level, allowing us to have a great time. ”

“Most excellent adventure - Broken Group Islands well worth it on every level. Our group of 7 women were a little apprehensive before we embarked, but the food, the guides, the equipment, the hospitality were all first rate. The scenery is amazing, of course, but the way we experienced it with Majestic was beyond our expectations. We are now The Majestic Women! ”

Cathryn, Calgary

“It doesn't get much better than this. The Broken Group Islands is a spectacular setting for kayaking. Majestic is very professional and we were well equipped with all necessary gear from neoprene booties to dry skirts to paddling gloves. Our guides were very knowledgeable and shared their wonderful environmental consciousness and respect for nature with us.”

“What a treat! Kayaking the Broken Islands with Majestic Kayaking was an outstanding experience.The ocean was calm and the kayaking pristine. The staff at Majestic Kayaking are professional, personal and knowledgeable. This includes the office personnel, the captain of the boat and the guides. We are a retired couple and did not find the experience physically taxing, although it is a good workout! We can highly recommend using the services of Majestic Kayaking. ”

Lars, Canada

“Great adventure. My wife and I did a tour of the Broken Islands off the coast of Uculet. The guidewas skilled, knowledgeable and set a mean lunch table. The paddling was work but not overly stressing, though we are both in good shape. The Islands are beautiful and peaceful and a great way to unwind from the daily stresses we normally have. i would strongly recommend Majestic to anyone who like activity, beautiful scenery and and relaxing day. We will go again.”

Rose, Washington DC

“Friendly guides made for an excellent Kayaking experience” Very professional and very friendly. Plus the packed lunch for on the Barkley Sound tour was a very neat idea. The homemade lemonade and cookies were a treat apart from other lunch items. It was quite a spread that the guides carried and it was very informative too. I'd love to come back & do the Broken Islands tour with them. ”

“Amazing Experience! Majestic Ocean Kayaking is an extremely professional company. I went on a day trip to the Broken Group Islands and they provided everything from quick dry clothing, all gear, and even lunch! Having never kayaked before I felt comfortable and safe the entire time, knowing that I was with professional guides and with an outfit that obviously knows what they are doing. THANK YOU MAJESTIC!!! ”

Candice, Canada

“Fantastic! So very impressed with this place! With the top notch equipment provided and instruction from our two guides we were out and about seeing all kinds of wildlife in the harbour and out around the outlaying islands. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Majestic to anyone! We'll defiantly be back! ”

Rich, UK

“The best kayaking and guide EVER. We went on a four day guided kayak trip to the Broken Group islands in May 2011. The trip was the most amazing trip we have ever been on and largely because of our fantastic guide, Ben. Ben made everything easy for us and allowed us to just soak up the scenery and the paddling. From the food to the equipment, everything was top notch. We don't have a single negative thing to say. BEST EVER. ”

Anonymous, California

“Well-organized fun! Our 4-day kayak trip out to the Broken Islands was equally good, especially because of the careful preparation, relaxed and friendly but capable guides, and excellent food. Equipment was all on good shape, and Majestic was about the only company we looked at in the area that automatically provides wet suits, paddle jackets, gloves and rain pants. We would recommend this company to anyone. ”

Richard, Washington

“Couldn't be better experience for first time kayakers. Four friends and I spent 4 days in the Broken Islands with our guides Ben and Krista. They were great! ”

Dan, Canada

“An unforgettable experience. We spent three days with majestic kayaking and had a fabulous time. They took me totally out of my comfort zone but I never felt less than safe and secure. They provided all the equipment to an excellent standard, and this made it so much easier. The guides were professional, experienced and fun. The day kayaking the Broken Islands is one I shall never forget. We were blessed with excellent weather which made the experience even more breathtaking. The lunch served on the beach was excellent and all in all I felt Tracy & Ted ran a very impressive and competent operation. We would go back in a heartbeat. We cannot recommend them enough. ”

Vicki, UK

“Deer Group was fabulous. Majestic Guides Ben and Travis were great. Incredible knowledge of marine life, plants, animals, fish, birds. Lots of other info re geology, history, and first nations. Food was excellant and the care from the guides first rate. This trip should be on everyone's "Bucket List" ”

Don, Canada

“Excellent Experience! My friend and I went on a 4 day trip in the Broken Islands. The guides Bill and Janna were very knowledgeable and catered to us the whole time. The food was fabulous and the equipment and supplies provided top notch.We saw eagles, seals, sea lions, starfish and the icing on the cake a humpback whale on the last day. I would highly recommend Majestic Ocean Kayaking as a great company to deal with. ”

Jo-Anne, Canada

“Best Staycation Ever!!! After spending this summer indulging in a little "staycationing" (vacationing close to home), the 4 days I spent in the Broken Islands with Majestic Ocean Kayaking was above and beyond the most amazing experience all summer! The guides, Janna and Bill, were outstanding and enthusiastic. The food was delicious and never ending. The paddling and sights were unreal. This was a trip I will never forget!!! I would recommend this trip to anyone who loves to paddle or who just loves adventure. Thanks Majestic!!! ”

Maiken, Vancouver

“Fresh air, excellent food and great company! My experience of Majestic from first to last was excellent, and the Broken Islands were a great choice. The food was absolutely fantastic, diligently prepared by our guide Andy. Just an excellent holiday all-round in a great area with a really excellent guide. Would definitely go again! ”

“Does not get any better! We had a an excellent time, great weather, great people, great guide, great paddling, great scenery, great food, great equipment, great setup. Did I say great? ”

Mike, Seattle

“We did the 4-day Broken Island group, and of course the scenery and wildlife were fantastic. What set this apart was the operation. We've been on two other multi-day camping kayaking trips in the Pacific NW, and this was by far the best organized, and with the best equipment of any of them. I would definitely recommend Majestic Ocean. Oh, and their B and B was lovely too! ”

Rick, Michigan

“My husband and I went on the 4 day Broken Group Island tour with Majestic Ocean Kayaking. The tour was extremely well organised and the guides were superb. The whole trip was fully catered to a very high standard, including cooked breakfasts, coffee and fruit teas, afternoon snacks and plentiful lunches. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable about the local area, wildlife etc and took us on some very memorable trips to see sea lions, go on a nighttime tour, and visit many of the islands in the area. Majestic made the whole tour into the trip of a lifetime - thoroughly recommended! ”

“We were pleased to get in a paddle while enjoying our week in the Tofino/Ucluelet area. I found Majestic Ocean Kayaking on an internet search when we were planning our trip and chose your organization over others as it provided an relatively sheltered area and, as we were spending the bulk of our time in Tofino, took us to another locale. We were impressed with Majestic, the equipment available, the affability & expertise of the staff and guides and the paddle, itself. Anne Marie and I have only been paddling for the last couple of years. We took two training courses and, in our sporadic paddles, have managed to take to the water in the San Juan Islands, Queen Charlotte and, now, Ucluelet. We would be very interested in returning for one of your extended tours such as the Broken Islands. ”

Jim and Anne Marie

“We loved our kayaking experience! We were staying at the Bostrom In and the owner works for you I believe. Anyways, your company was very professional and helpful. We enjoyed our tour guides and the overall experience was a ton of fun. Thanks, Annette ”

Annette

“I found you on the internet after I had done extensive reading about Barkley Sound. Being primarily a Lake Michigan and Florida Keys kayaker, your trip was one of those "bucket list" dreams. I thought that choosing you satisfied my criteria for a great experience pretty well. Having completed the trip I realized that there are many factors that you just can't control; most importantly weather and,other members of the group. In these regards we hit the jackpot. As for our guides, I cannot say enough. The match of their personalities,skill sets and professionalism was outstanding. I cannot imagine a better pair of guides. Our experience has become the standard by which we will judge future trips. ”

Art, Lake Michigan

“We had a perfect day kayaking. Great weather, great guide and flawless organization. We have mentioned the trip to numerous people in Calgary. We found out about your company by surfing the web. Obviously there were a couple of choices and the decision was made based on location (you were near where we were staying - they also asked if we had arranged anything and when we said yes, they confirmed that you were a good choice.). The other reason for picking your company was just a feel from your web site. Anyways, there will be a day before the bones creak too much that we will be in touch again. Thank you. Chris ”

Chris, Calgary

“Hi Tracy and Ted, Our group of 3 found you on-line. Your site was nicer and a bit more modern than some of the others. The description of the trip along with your marketing of them with pictures and clear information around pricing and details were what sold you to me and then to my group. We had never done a kayaking expedition which is why we wanted a guided trip and because I was temporarily on the coast and didn't have access to my hiking gear - that you provided tents and all cooking equipment was also great. we had a great time - thank you! Jennifer. ”

Jennifer & friends, 2012

“hi there, I did the Broken Group trip with you last weekend and just wanted to say thanks for an amazing trip! The guides (Matt and Travis) were excellent, food fantastic and we really lucked out with the weather and the group! Very memorable and I would definitely recommend you to others. One quick question for you- I was wondering what size of drybags you gave us, I'm thinking of getting some and thought those sizes worked pretty well so just wanted to double-check with you. thanks again Natalie ”

Natalie, 2012

“Tracy & Ted: I just purchased a small HiLo travel trailer while on vacation at Glacier National Park in August. I needed to try it out on a road trip and decided a splendid area would be Vancouver Island. I researched outdoor activities for a few days and determined that Sea Kayaking would be interesting. Where to go was the next question. I chose you because of the beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife in your area. We had a wonderful, first time, kayaking adventure. Your guide was professional and charming. We chatted about our shared experiences in London. Got to see sea lions, seals, bald eagles, and of course the beautiful underwater kelp beds and starfish. Wish I had made it a full day trip, perhaps next time. Cordially, Ferrell ”

Ferrell, 2012

“Hi Tracy and Ted, Steve and I had a wonderful time during our four day kayaking trip in Broken Islands. Ben was an excellent guide and cook! The weather was perfect! We could not have asked for better weather. We saw abundant wildlfe. I googled and compared you to U of C outdoor program and couple of other outfits. I liked the fact that you provide gourmet meals. If you have beautiful whale pictures please forward. Thanks. Regards, Rosa ”

“WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME ON THE KAYAKING TRIP. OUR B&B – BARTOWS (I THINK) WAS WONDERFUL AND DIRECTED US TO YOU. OUR GUIDE WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE AND FUNNY.- THE COMPANY WAS EFFICIENT. (SO EFFICIENT THAT WHEN I LEFT MY BALL CAP BY ACCIDENT-IT HAD ALREADY BEEN WASHED AND HUNG UP BY THE TIME I WALKED BACK TO GET IT. How did you hear about us? THE B&B AND WE SAW IT ON THE INTERNET –HOPE TO COME BACK SOME DAY ”

“We had a truly wonderful trip with Lucy. My arms were a bit tired so I was glad i was in a two person Kayak with my partner because I just pretented to paddle and let him do most of the hard work. I think I just googled sea kayaking near Tofino to find you and the reviews on Trip Advisor were all very good so we went with you. Equally, the assistance I got when I emailed many enquiries meant that I knew I had made the right choice. If I am ever lucky enough to get back that way I would try for another trip with you without hesitation! ”

Kate, 2012

“Hi All, Well we had a fantastic 3 week holiday. We had a few magical days and one was the kayak and whale tour with yourselves. The knowledge, enthusiasm and experience of your guides were a comforting thought and not once did we feel any danger. We found you on the Internet, compared you with similar operators but found majestic offered the best choices. We would love to come back as this was a holiday of a lifetime, unfortunately we live so far away in England. Kind regards Mark and Andrea ”

Mark and Andrea, England, 2012

“I had a great time on the trip. The guides provided just the right amount of constructive instruction, an appropriate amount of ecological and regional information, and a great balance between challenging and relaxing paddles. The experience has prompted me to go kayaking more often in Canada and outside of the country. How did you hear about us? I was reading several blogs about different kayaking experiences in the Broken Group Islands -- several of them recommended your kayaking company. I also appreciated that a single person could join a group without penalty or any other special arrangements to be made. ”

Shannon, Alberta, 2012

“we really enjoyed the full day-trip with whale watching, although the weather wasn't perfect. Our guide was very friendly and told very interesting historic stories. We heard about the majestic Ocean Kayaking from a friend in Vancouver and the Internet. Best wiches and have a great time, Lukas from Germany ”

How did you hear about us? performed a web search looking for quality kayak teachers and outfitters. everyone I looked at recommended you guys.”

“We loved our tour! It was the highlight of our trip. Since our baby was born we've only been a handful of times, and this was definitely a much-needed experience. Unfortunately I got a little to excited and out of form, and now I'm nursing a shoulder impingement! It was so worth it! We found you guys online, and compared to other sites you had the most interesting tours offered. We thank you for giving us so much. ”

“Tracy, Ted and all the wonderful staff at Majestic, You were an integral part of a great vacation on Vancouver Island! Your service was excellent, with knowledgeable and friendly staff. We visited you on our twentieth anniversary celebration. The kayaking tour was the highlight of the trip. Thank you so much for the great time! We do plan on using you again when we bring our kids to Ucluelet next summer. What a great area! We'll be in touch. Thanks again, Greg ”

Greg, 2012

“We were impressed and grateful that the captain took the time to slow down/stop the launch on our way to the Broken Islands so that we could see the whales breaching. Instead of being on a tight timetable and rushing us out to the islands, he did his best to position his boat so that we could get some great views. He did the same on the return journey at the end of the day, and for that he should be commended. It was a very important part of the day for us. ”

“We wanted to kayak the Broken Group Islands so I searched the Internet and found your company. You were offering exactly what we were looking for - and we weren't disappointed! It was a wonderful day and the guides were great. We were lucky enough to see grey whales on the way there, which of course was a big plus. The lunch stop was a beautiful spot. Thanks for a great trip - we would go with you again in the future.”

Michele, Alberta, 2012

“Rory and I really enjoyed the tour. I believe we went on the Broken Island Day Trip. Your guides split us up between young and old (well except for me - who things he is a youngish 52 years, with my 23 year old son and another fellow who was about 30). As a result we paddled pretty quickly and made good distance. And I don't think I held the young guys back. Our guide was ( I forget his name) the guy who likes to do Eskimo rolls and paddle with as stick. He took us through some rock spaces and it was fun. Food was good. The boat driver (Captain Gary) was excellent and thats why we took another tour the next day just for whales. ”

Scott & Rory (father and son), 2012

“Hi! We had a great time on our kayaking trip. The weather was perfect, our guide was very knowledgeable, and we got to see a lot of beautiful scenery. I appreciate that you have all of the gear so that we don't have to bring our own. I have done the whole day trip and now the half day...and both were highlights of my trip to the island. I heard about Majestic from seeing a poster. Then I looked you up online the second time I came and wanted to book a kayaking trip. I will be back again. Thanks! Shawnella ”

Shawnella, 2012

“Melanie and I could not have been more pleased with our day in the Broken Islands Group. Our guide (sorry to say I forgot her name. that's my shortcoming, not hers) was exceptional. The boat driver also. Both seemed to enjoy being there as much as we did. It was a perfect day and maybe the most memorable of our trip. We saw many seals, 2 different species of sea lion and spent more time with the grey whales during our boat ride than we ever had on 2 previous whale-watching trips. Truly an exceptional experience in a beautiful area. Feel free to use my comments for any use you wish. I'm not so good at reliving my journeys on TripAdvisor, but we do tip well. Heard about you on the web. ”

Melanie & Kevin, 2012

“The tour I took was exactly what I wanted. Four years ago my husband and I retired to Bamfield from Squamish. In June I purchased my first Kayak, never having been in one before. I took a paddling lesson and two self rescue classes - as I will be by myself most of the time. After doing a lot of paddling around Bamfield for a month I needed to know if I was up to doing ;the Broken Islands alone. The young lady who headed up the tour was great and gave me the confidence to venture out. My husband takes me to the Deer Group or into the Broken Islands, then goes fishing while I paddle. Next year I would like to take the George Fraser Island Tour as I would like to learn to paddle in heavier water. My husband picked up your brochure, he thinks on the ferry, I read it and thought - just what I need. ”

Denise, Bamfield 2012

“Hi there. We were just working on a photo album of pictures of our kayaking trip and we remembered your email. We had a fabulous time, our only disappointment was nothing to do with Majestic but that one son was unable to join the 4 of us on this trip. From the morning van ride out to the return trip in we had a great time. Ben and Jeremy were great guides. From their helpful instructions on paddling to their knowledge of the area and wildlife to their expert cooking skills we could not have had better guides. We enjoyed the paddling time and the various hikes we undertook. It was a good mix of activities. We appreciated the extra care both guides took from a safety perspective and although never having ocean kayaked before we all felt very comfortable. So you can see we enjoyed our trip. We have recommended Majestic to friends and co-workers. You did good!! Hope to get out there again some time ”

Brian and Deb, 2012

“I’m certainly pleased to let you know how pleased Nancy and I were about our kayak experience with your company. It was wonderful from start to finish. The “start” was my first telephone contact with Tracy, several months before. I had been researching options for a west coast kayaking experience for us, and your website appeared to me to be the most suitable to our plans. Tracy was informative and friendly and I was reassured by the end of the call that we had picked the right outfit. The registration experience was simple and well organized, both for the excursion and the B&B registration. Our B&B plans had changed several weeks before our trip, and changing the nights with you was simple. The checklist and other information you provided made packing and preparation stress-free. On our arrival, we were greeted by your friendly staff member (sorry I don’t remember his name now) who got us settled in our room. The room on the first night was especially nice and comfortable. Meeting the guides, Bill and Jana the next morning, we set off with the other six guests in the van; it was apparent right from the start that this was a group that was going to gel together. The rest of the trip validated how cohesive and friendly everyone was. The kayaking experience was awesome of course – how could it not be in such an area as the Broken Group of Islands? Bill and Jana made it all the more so. They were both very skilled at managing our trip, cooking and arranging the meals (which, I would add, were simply fantastic, without exception), and providing sound paddling advice and local information. The weather was great, even when it rained, as our guides were well prepared with their setting up of tarps for the meal serving area and an area for our close-knit group to huddle and enjoy dinner. And the bonus, were the sightings of finbacks, seals, eagles, starfish, black bears and other wildlife in the area. After returning back to your headquarters, we mapped the trip – mine is proudly posted in my office at work. I have kayaked over the past 20 years or so, mostly day trips. I was a bit concerned that there would not be as much paddling as I was hoping to get out of the trip, but as it turned out, there was plenty. It was good balance of paddling and exploring, with appropriate shore breaks along the way. Everyone was respectful of what others wanted out of their vacation, and I think Bill and Jana played a good role in ensuring that. Nancy and I regard this as one of our great vacations – and we have had many great active vacations in Canada and abroad. So we’d love to come back and do the same all over again. We recommend this to anyone who seeks a similar adventure, and would not hesitate to refer them to your outfit. We have a 20 year old daughter who has expressed an interest in work in outdoor recreation (has done some contract work for Outward Bound); she would be in seventh heaven leading excursions like this – we were so excited telling her about our experience when we returned. We wish your business all the success it deserves. Keep up the good work and we hope that we will be in touch with you again someday. Cheers, Patrick ”

Patrick & Nancy 2012

“I had a wonderful time last week on the (new) Tofino Inlet/Clayoquot Sound day trip. The scenery was gorgeous and Ted E was a fantastic guide. The previous year I did the Broken Group Islands day trip with Kevin B. He is also a great guide, and this archipelago is breathtaking. I’ve kayaked with Majestic several times now over the past five years and I can’t say enough about Tracy, Ted and their team. Thank you for providing me with so many enjoyable experiences. ”

Michael, Ottawa, Canada 2014

“I really enjoyed the tour I did with you. Everything went smoothly, it was a great group of people, excellent guides, and we saw lots of beautiful scenery and wildlife. I wanted to thank you also for catering to my dietary needs - it was much appreciated. ”

Rowena, London 2012

“Beth and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our stay at your B&B and our one-day kayaking trip. The trip was very well organized. The guides on the trip were excellent. The scenery was beautiful, as were all of the whales and sea lions we saw on the trip. We enjoyed our stay at your B&B. It's a lovely place and the home cooking was delicious. We especially appreciated your ability to accommodate our food restrictions. Many thanks for a great weekend in Ucluelet. ”

Beth and Jeff, 2012

“Noticing that Majestic Ocean had gently used sea kayaks for sale, I decided to buy myself an advanced Christmas gift. Ted and Tracy were very helpful in selecting comfortable equipment to quickly set me up in the sport at a reasonable price. I was good to go on December 14, around the sunny Ucluelet harbour. Spotted numerous marine bird varieties, including pairs of Trumpeter Swans. So nice being trumpeted into the new year! Regards, Ingrid ”

Ingrid, Tofino 2012

“We had a wonderful time, and we wished that we had booked the B&B for our return also. Despite never having kayaked or camped out before, I thoroughly enjoyed it & felt completely safe in the hands of the guide. I felt wholly at peace out on the ocean (which is a real first for me!) and although I do a lot of nature/conservation activities, it was one of the few times that a I felt like a participant rather than a spectator. I hope to return one day – and to see some bears! Kind regards, Gail. ”
