Many thanks for all your support. I had an incredible time - Adventure Vacation

By Tracey Reed, Japan


Many thanks for all your support. I had an incredible time.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were so many exceptional moments so rather than pick one I will share the best of them. Seeing the Grizzlies fishing for salmon, watching orca surface in the errie mist of early morning, hundreds of porpoise in convoy surrounding our boat, kayaking in the Clayoquot Sound where the constantly changing cloud and mist made the surroundings transform into numerous spectacular outlooks, eating breakfast in a hotel which was formerly a church (the breakfast table is located where the pulpit used to be and the view is amazing), and the incredible food and guides provided my Majestic Kayaking.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take warm clothes. I had to buy a very thick wind-proof fleece and I was there in July. Take wine on the kayaking portion of the trip so you can sip it as the sun goes down with your kayaking buddies.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Absolutely. Kayaking had very little impact on the environment - for obvious reasons - and all the trash taken in to the Sound was also taken out. The other outfits - namely grizzly tour and orca watching - used boats, but they were unobtrusive when it came to proximity and sound near the wildlife. Locals ran each tour so you know the money is going back to the local community in each area

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Truly outstanding. I loved it!
