Great Interpretive Trip

Candace and her team guided our corporate group near Crescent Beach.

We learned about Coast Salish history on a beautiful kayak trip. The kayaks were in excellent condition, excellent guides and we had a nice snack during our break. The equipment was ready for us when we arrived and we finished on time.

Everyone had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend going with Talaysay Tours.
