“I joined the Wildheart’s Wild Westcoast adventure Aug 17-23 and had an amazing time. Jaimie and Jaimie led us on a great adventure through the Kyuquot area. The paddling was gorgeous, the food amazing, and their ability to lead us safely given the disparate levels of experience and fitness of the group, impressive. The crowning glory was the fresh caught lingcod we dined on for two dinners. I can’t wait for my next kayaking adventure with them- hopefully next year.” ~ Rachel French de Mejia
