Great Day!

Weather in Vancouver in September is already tricky. The forecast for our vacation showed rain every day for a week! We got lucky though, and missed the rain during our kayak trip but ran into lots of wind. I think our guide would have cancelled the trip except my husband and I were experienced kayakers. It was a little challenging and I would have preferred a less strenuous kayak but I’m glad we did it. The seaplane over was great, everything worked like clockwork, our guide was a cool kid who was lots of fun and enthusiastic, we were met on time and it didn’t start raining until we got back to Vancouver! BTW it was my birthday trip! What a great present!

Hi Lynn and Frank! Great to hear that you had such a big day on your birthday! And you both done together in rough water like our life we have to go through anyway. Yes, if you both were not experienced, it should be cancelled as safety is the first. Those memories you've done together will be yours and it will last long for your life. And sometimes it makes you smile as well. Thank you for Visiting Canada and come back again!!! LLT
