“Helen Keller once wrote “Life is a daring adventure or nothing”. Well myself and two friends chose the “daring adventure” route, and with minimal kayaking experience booked a 4 day trip with Majestic Ocean Kayaking thru the Broken Island Group.
Since it was early in the season, there was just the three of us led by our guide Bobbi. We had the time of our lives! Bobbie gave us some paddling tips as we kayaked a large portion of Pacific Rim National Park. Under his watchful eye, we paddled through calm waters, still lagoons but also challenged ourselves in waves and ocean swells at the later aspects of the park. We always felt safe and within our capabilities. We stopped at several islands and explored ancient forests, hidden native grounds, green meadows, sandy beaches and long forgotten “middens”.
We benefited from Bobbi’s extensive knowledge about the islands’ natural history, plant, sea and wild life. The highlight was seeing three orca whales feeding about 150 feet from our kayaks. Needless to say, we were the envy of every kayaker at the camp ground that evening! Bobbi made unbelievable meals with little more than two pots and a coleman stove. The desserts were fantastic and could not be resisted. Sadly, our daring adventure came to an end but our memories will last a life time. We did it girls! Thank you Bobbi and Majestic Kayaking for making this possible!”
“I want to thank you for being such an amazing person! I have never seen a company do what you have done! You went the extra mile to make sure we were comfortable kayaking on our first time. You didn’t just book the tour and take our money like so many others do. You really helped going over all the questions/fears we had and we felt completely confident going in the kayak. Also, I want to let you know Lisa sure makes a great first impression when you come into the office.
Now with Brayden, he’s a different story…just kidding! Brayden was fabulous! He showed us the ropes, helped with getting in and out and was so genuinely kind and friendly! Also, it is wonderful Lisa looked after our little furbaby while we were kayaking; wonderful idea for you to do for customers! Your kayaks and equipment are in great shape and it shows how you rinse all the gear! The warm foot bath was wonderful too!
You have an amazing team and I will highly recommend your company to anyone (I will on yelp and facebook once I figure out the new format of facebook). It is not often I can write a thank you letter to companies these days but I felt your team went above and beyond for us. A huge thank you and we hope to see you again soon!”
“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. ”
“Absolutely Amazing Experience”
“This one-day kAnonymous, Austriaayaking trip was surely the highlight of my short stay in Ucluelet. Thanks for that great paddling experience! ”
“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! ”
“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. ”
“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. ”
“Eagles Everywhere! Our guides, Kevin and Jeremy, took 8 of us out for a tremendous kayaking tour. Kevin knew where to go for the wildlife.”
“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!!! ”
“Highlight of our month long Canada trip – magical. Our guide, Laura, was magnificent, very knowledgeable and my daughter took to her immediately – and loved it when Laura produced a star fish for her to hold. ”
Well impressed, surpassed my expectations.
“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.”
“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.”
“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! ”
“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.”
“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. ”
“From Sea Stars to Bald Eagles to Whales, and all in one day!” We went on the full-day trip to the Broken Group Islands. It was AMAZING! The staff at Majestic are just terrific and the entire organization very professional and fun.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Great way to get your feet wet! Fun and safe! ”
