Kayaking and dinner at Flying Otter Pub

An evening sail and then dinner at the Flying Otter Grill. Sunset sail is for $49.00 per person. Max is 15. Would prefer a Saturday to do this. An evening paddle past Fisherman’s Wharf or up the Gorge Waterway. A great way to wind down with friends after work (we finish at the pub). The tour leaves the dock 2 hours before sunset (approximately 4:30 PM).

Duration: 1½ to 2 hours depending on weather and paddler ability.
Rate: $49.00 (plus GST)

    So sorry for dropping off the grid there for a bit Kathleen. I have contacted Victoria Kayak and I am good to go. I am very excited and look forward to some fun and relaxation after moving this month.

    Hello Kathleen, I also have my own kayak and it looks like this tour is for those who would be renting only. I would like to go but it looks like I might have to wait for another meet up.

    Unfortunately I am having to cancel out at this time. I just found out that I am having company coming for the weekend so I will not be able to make it this time.

    Unfortunately this date did not work for me but Kathleen if you decide to set up another Kayak evening, I would love to sign up particularly throughout July and August as I am most available then.

    I still have only 7 people on the list that actually reserved thier kayaks. I will be making a change in the number of people for the pub as well, since i have not heard back from the others. Tomorrow is the last day to reserve your kayak. Thanks.

    Hi Kathleen thanks so much for organizing this kayak/dinner. Just wanted to let you know that i have my own Kayak and I have never launched from a dock before. I am not sure if my skill level is acceptable?

      Okay Sharon. If you are interested in someone to go with you kayaking, but along the shoreline, I am interested.

      April 29, 2014

    • Sharon

      Absolutely! I am interested in kayaking with someone. I usually go to the upper gorge area/inlet, Admirals beach to launch.

    Sorry to have to do it, but I'm cancelling. Too hard to plan so far ahead when I may have a chance to see my granddaughter!

      No problem Suzanne. I hope you get to see her.

  • Suzanne

    I, too, have my own boat and am willing to paddle at my own risk. Sounds like fun! Ev -- should we try to arrange a launch together again?

    You will ONLY need to call the "Victoria Kayaking" at[masked] to reserve one. You do not need to call the Flying Otter Grill. I have already reserved for 15 peple. I have contacted the Kayaking place and only 5 have reserved. If you are not interested, PLEASE take your name off so others can move up. Thanks. Let me know once you have reserved.

    I have sent emails to all the people that have reserved for this. Since I do not want to be out $735 I have asked each of you to call the Victoria Kayak at[masked] and tell them to reserve a space. I put the group name as the "Victoria Outdoor and Social Club" (evening sail and dinner at the Flying Otter Grill) for May 10 at 4:30. Please let me know when and if you do it. Thanks.

    If I launch my own boat will that leave room for others to rent? They may only have so many boats to rent out. Just an idea.

      I am not sure if they would like tag alongs. I am not sure how many more they will allow, until I call them at the end of the month.

      I asked about you tagging along, and they do not really like it, but they really can not stop you.

    I was able to open to 15 people. We will have 3 guides now. I have moved it to 4:30pm so we can be back for 7:30pm for dinner. Please arrive by 4:15pm on the dock so we can leave on time. I have made reservations for about 730pm at the Flying Otter grill. We may be sitting on the outside deck with heat, but please bring a jacket in case. I have put this reservation on my credit card, so if you do not show up, I will be out some money. I would appreciate if you can not make it, please cancel your reservation ASAP so others can attend. Thanks.

    I have contacted Victoria Kayaking, and they are willing to put on another guide, so I can open my capping from 6 to 12 people. They also informed me that they arrive back to the dock at 8pm or so. Please let me know if you are okay with a late dinner (8:15pm) or an early one so we don't rush at (4:00pm) before I reserve at the Flying Otter Grill. It is open to 10pm on Saturdays. Please if you can not make the sunset cruise, cancel as soon as you can, so others on the waiting list can attend. If you wish to just do the dinner and not Kayak, or vice versa, let me know too. Thanks. Kathleen

      Yes, this will be a paddle tour with a guide. I am very new at kayaking. No place to store one, so I have to rent. I had to cap it at 7, but they mentioned for more then 7 to call them. They are unfortunatly away until the end of Jan. Can see if I can bring more. If you suggest a Meetup requesting people with thier own kayaks to meet somewhere, I am sure you will find a lot of people.

    I am not sure how to cap the amount of people that can attend. They say 7 max, but I need to call them to see if I can bring more.
