We had an absolutely amazing time on our estuary tour. Tyson was patient and gracious. We were thrilled with the entire event and would highly recommend Coast River Kayak to anyone traveling to Squamish.Lori W, North Carolina
Caro and I were very happy with our progress yesterday, you gave us exactly the fine tuning we needed. I think everybody learned a lot. I saw a lot of smiling faces.- Arndt, Germany
I had a fabulous time on Saturday Kayaking with you. I certainly would like to do this again (even swim!) I felt safe, comfortable and in control. You certainly know how to get a students brain into a learning space. Thank you very much!Karen Lovey, Whiterock, BC
Great day today, thanks Tyson. Learning and paddling was fun, weather was perfect, and we saw some salmon in the river. A bonus was seeing a bear catch a salmon just above one of our play spots. Looking forward to more play!Craig, Vancouver, BC
