  • Love this place! I get almost everything I use on my kayak trips here. I have bought boats here, the staff is amazing and knowledgeable. I guide for the adventure centre and am happy the store staff are so good to me. They have a great selection, they stand behind their products, trust me I am not easy on gear. I actually get excited to go to that store to find out what treasure I will discover next. They have lots of high end gear and clothing. It is my fav store in Victoria by far :) so much so that I am part of the Adventure Centre Team!
  • Great shop, fantastic location- full of friendly, knowledgeable staff! A few friends came up from Kelowna to visit victoria; we took some kayaks out into the Gorge and it was a highlight of their time here. During the trip we saw tones of wildlife including Seals and many other shore birds. We enjoyed our time out on the water, staff were extremely helpful getting everything prepared.
  • Great place to purchase and find out information on outdoor wear.
  • Very knowledgeable and friendly staff, been shopping here for years nothing but good experiences.
  • We booked a paddleboarding tour while we were docked for the day. Emma was our guide and she was nothing less than AMAZING. She was very patient, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about everything from the kayaks to our surroundings. We had see Heron and even seals pop out of the water! She would move as slowly or quickly as we liked and kept offering breaks if we needed. I'd highly recommend this...this is honestly one of the best tours I've taken and a large part of it is because of the staff!
