"Amazing 3-Hour Tour"

"The 3-hour guided tour with Debby was amazing. She gave us the useful information about navigating rules and techniques. We crossed the busy part of Saint-Laurent river and paddled along several islands to the Half Moon Bay and back. The scenery was wonderful; we saw eagles, herons, geese. During the stops Debby told us about the history of the islands. After the tour I enjoyed swimming on the beach."

"Great Experience"

"Great experience renting full day tandem kayaks from 1000 island kayaking. Kayaks were in great condition and we also received dry bags for our phones which allowed us to click great photographs in the middle of the water. The 1000 islands kayaking crew was fantastic, especially Mike, who paid special attention to us as it was our first time kayaking. I would recommend going early at 9:30 AM to pick up the kayaks so that you can enjoy your trip without any hassle."

"Very Supportive"

"Great experience. We took half day guided tour. Guides are very supportive and will help you in every manner. Half day guided tour basically covers 5-6 islands and 7-8 Kms. Kayaks are well maintained. No need to worry even if you don't have any prior experience. Truly amazed by the beauty of the islands. Highly recommended."

"They Did Everything to Accommodate Us"

"1000 Islands Kayaking was amazing! We did a half day guided tour with Caleb and Kim. They did everything to accommodate us, including changing our reservation to make sure we had the best weather, even though we were 10 in our group. The tour was full of information and great locations, and even though we have our own kayaks and visit this area often, we plan to book this tour yearly. The safety instructions and care taken crossing boating channels made everyone in our party feel very safe. Thanks for the great experience."
