    "North Shore Kayaks looked after us right from dropping off the rentals as well as suggesting some good places to see along the way. They had all the equipment cleaned and organized for a quick launch all we had to do was show up."

    "We were originally going to take a kayak school at our local recreation centre pool but your outdoor lessons and the instructions on the open water near the shore helped us learn more than any indoor clinic could have taught us. Thank you to your instructors for their patience in understanding our needs."
