A Great Kayaking Tour With Ocean River Sports & Adventures

On our visit to beautiful 🌷 Victoria, British Columbia – 🍁 Canada, my wife and I enjoyed an excellent {Kayaking Tour} with – Ocean River Adventures. 

Having never experienced real {Sea Kayaking} before, this was a great introduction and a wonderful way to see part of the city from the water.

One of the great things about travel, is experiencing something new and exciting along the way. My wife and I are always looking for something different and off the beaten path, when visiting new places.

We have both enjoyed a limited amount of simple kayaking on various lakes, but have always wanted to try kayaking on the sea. We could not have picked a better location and tour for beginners like us, than in Victoria, BC.

Ocean River Adventures has been in business for well over 30 years in downtown Victoria, offering a huge selection of tours. They have a huge retail store, kayaking school, rentals and much more.

The perfect choice for beginners or experienced individuals wanting to enjoy a unique kayaking tour.

The company’s slogan is “Getting You Out There” and that’s exactly what we wanted to do.

Experience kayaking safely and discover the beauty of Victoria from the water.  We chose their popular – 3 hour scenic Victoria Harbour Kayak Tour, for our first adventure.

This is a perfect choice for beginners like ourselves, or for those experienced at kayaking just looking for a relaxed guided paddling tour out on the water!

After a brief introduction and instruction on how to safely navigate and paddle, our guide led us into the water to begin our journey up the scenic and calm waters of the Gorge Waterway.

This is an area of the city that stretches from the inner harbour and follows along a narrow waterway, surrounded by residential waterfront homes and businesses.

Along the way, we made several stops with our very informative guide pointing out areas of interest and some history along the way.

Our 3 hour paddle up the Gorge waterway was a very peaceful and relaxing venture.

After our instruction on how to maneuver our craft, we found it incredibly easy to paddle, very stable and a lot of fun even for us beginners. 🙂
