    Toni is a wonderful guide ! She knows her trails and the plants, she's really helpful and make sure you have the best time.
    The trail (Iron Mine Beach) was exactly what I was looking for, not too difficult but still challenging and had beautiful views on the ocean and a lot of forest luxury.
    I recommend it a lot !

    The boat was surprisingly smooth and quiet. Had a briefing at the dock, fitted out with immersion suits, toasty warm, bring wooly hat and gloves because it can get pretty chilly on the water in October.
    We saw all kinds of wildlife. For a while we were completely surrounded by humpbacks feeding, never knew that they were so huge and so graceful. Seals, sea lions, eagles, the whole trip was truly magical. My visiting family were completely awe struck.
    Skipper Mike did a great job. The ride felt safe and comfortable, the kids actually fell asleep for a while after all that fresh air and excitement.

    I highly recommend this whale watching trip.

    Although I was hesitant to book a trip in March, I was not disappointed. Tory guided us through some coastal beauty, introduced us to a pair of resident eagles, and expertly captained the boat resulting in a wonderful morning fishing .I highly recommend Tory and his expert fishing experience.

    Went out hali fishing for my birthday and Roy did not disappoint. We hooked into some stellar fishing and he diligently cleaned and filleted them all for us. He threw out a crab trap previously and we came home with a full cooler. Highly recommended - he's very knowledgeable and a great guide to take you out on the water. Definitely knows his stuff and the area like the back of his hand. We will be booking again shortly!

    Randal was so helpful in making sure we all felt comfortable on the water! He was very knowledgeable about the area and all of the wild life, it was a great activity to start off our morning in Sooke.

    Rented e-bikes and a trailer bike and youth bike. These guys got us all equipped for a very smooth cycle up to Potholes complete with shuttle and other pointers for enjoying the area. Super friendly and super easy to get set up. Made for a very fun day. Highly recommend e bikes for towing a double chariot - never did that before and man was it nice!

    What a gift this company is to the region as champions and partners of Sea! Knowledgeable naturalist accompanies the tour and speaks about all things mammals gives interesting facts and tips about the whales and sea life, is also helpful in answering questions you may have. A seasoned and capable captain is also aboard navigating the waves like a pro. You will feel safe and free to relax and delight in the magnificence of the sea.We saw Humpback whales with a calf, seals,and sea lions. You will be kept warm by the appropriate layers you wear including the insulated suit they provide for you to keep dry and warm. Today was Juneuary 12 I was grateful for the suit! Call and book a tour off their website. They're a great company, friendly, hospitable, good humoured humans and you will have memories for a lifetime!

    Mike was a super professional guide and a nice guy. We caught a ton of fish. He knew exactly where to find the fish and we learned so much from him about the local area. We’d definitely book with him again.

    Four of us wanted to go fishing for salmon, we saw the sign on the road and went in. First impression was very good, so we booked a trip. All of us had a great time, Luke was very easy to get along with and made us feel welcome and at home, and on top of it all, we caught fish!! If we come back fishing in Sooke, we would definitely book with VIP fishing charters again, and would highly recommend him.

    I think this may be the very first time I've ever hired a guide during any of our big vacations. After researching the Port Renfrew area, I started to get a vibe that accessing some of the big tree trails was going to be a chore, even in a rented 4WD SUV. I'm not bashful about driving on horrible backroads, but some of these logging roads sounded pretty bad. My communication via email with Drea before the trip was fantastic. I told her what we were wanting to do, and she built a full day trip just for us. I'm pescatarian but mostly vegetarian, so she prepared us both a veggie sandwich lunch that was fantastic. If you even hesitate due to the per person price, you should not worry one bit. She has a very well equipped 4WD vehicle, and knows the back logging roads like the back of her hand. We visited the Lower Avatar Grove, Big Lonely Doug, and Eden Grove during the first part of our day. Drea has worked with a lot of the big tree conservation people in the area, and she knows a great deal of info about the local ecology. There's a big movement underway on Vancouver Island to protect the old growth out there, so now is the time to go out and see the biggest trees in the entire province and probably all of Canada.

    Avatar Grove is just filled with people most of the time, because it is so easy to get to. Once you turn off the mainline rood and head up to Big Lonely Doug, the people disappear. Nothing prepares you for that first view of Doug from the gravel road. The short hike down is pretty steep but easy, and has a spectacular payoff at the base of one of the two biggest Douglas Firs in the world. Just a little farther down the road is Eden Grove, which is just beyond comprehension. It is filled with old growth Western Red Cedar that has some of the most complex root and crown structures I've ever seen in any tree. Right by the trailhead is another massive Douglas Fir, too.

    Drea capped off our great day out with a trip south down to Sombrio Beach and its hidden slot canyon waterfall. What an amazing day, and a fantastic guide! I'll also add that she came and picked us up right on time at our rented cottage in Handsome Dan's and then dropped us right back off at our doorstep after we were done. If you are planning on a trip to the Port Renfrew area, you should absolutely consider booking a trip with Drea.

    Amazing guide kept us entertained during the entire trip with his encyclopedic knowledge of the area. Beautiful area with lots to see. Special note: you will be provided with spray skirts for your kayak. A nice touch that isn't always included on kayak tours/rentals to keep you warm and dry.
