Well, we have now readjusted to full-thickness mattresses and lattes!(and Terry is on call this week which makes him remember the pager-free week all the more fondly ! )

I just wanted to get back to you to say thank you so much, it was a really wonderful trip. We loved the kayaking, the scenery , the intertidal biology, the food… and the fun !

We also thought you have the most wonderful guides and have only HUGE praise for the competence, efficiency, professionalism and permanent good-humour of both Erin & James.

We are all telling our friends & co-workers about Batstar, and hope we will be doing another trip soon ……

See you then, good luck, Ailve & Terry

Hi Blake,
Just a quick note to say thank you for the wonderful time we had sea kayaking in Nuchatlitz Provincial Park. Also thank you for the book on kayaking Vancouver Island, and the beautiful hand-made batstar.

You and JF are both exceptional guides and wonderful cooks. I finally have the CD’s with photos of Nuchatlitz and also of the Queen Charlottes. I am looking forward to our trip to the Broken Group in August.
See you soon.

Dear Blake, Rhonda and Liz,
Glenna and I would just like to thank you all again for a wonderful trip and perfectly executed introduction to kayaking on the west coast. Ever since we got back, we have been telling and re-telling our stories to our friends and family. We enjoyed everything–even the rain made it a REAL west coast experience–nothing artificial or staged about that!!

We very much appreciated all you attention to detail, from the top quality gear that kept us warm, comfortable and safe–to the in depth understanding of flora, fauna and sea life–to the luxurious meals and friendly atmosphere of camp. It was a real 5-star experience in the middle of the Canadian wilderness. How often do you camp for five days on a beach on the edge of the open ocean without a shower and limited changes of clothes, and still come home feeling as you have been pampered.

We cannot say enough about Liz, – knowledgeable, diligent, attentive, fun, hardworking, professional – they demonstrated all these attributes. And as much as the kayaing is fun and the scenery spectacular, it is the people that make any experience special.

Thanks again to you all,
John and Glenna

Dear Rhonda,
Thank you for the adventure in your “back yard”. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Your hospitality and facilities are first class. Your guides are fun! p.s. We’ll be back for more…

Rhonda and Blake,
Thank you for a truly outstanding trip for our boys. C & J talked non stop to Victoria about the fun they had. All the boys had such a wonderful adventure – they will remember it forever. They had experiences they would never be able to have with Mom & Dad – just being boys. Bruce and I were so pleased that together with you we could give them such a great opportunity. Many thanks.

What a wonderful experience (our sea kayaking trip) was. Everything about the holiday was perfect. Everything about your operation is first class. It makes your clients feel that they are part of something very personal where integrity takes priority. And those guides – they are just awesome. THey made our trip such a delightful experience. I’m telling you, it was really hard to come back to reality after a week of being so pampered and well fed. Thank you so much.

Dear Rhonda and Blake,
I am still pouring over my pictures of our kayaking adventure with Batstar. I just want to say thank you again for providing all the key ingredients for a wonderful holiday. Your guides, Mario and JF were so competent, conscientious, knowledgeable – and gourmet chefs as well! Their professionalism and their pleasantness was remarkable.
