Wildlife & Adventure Tour Icons


Come explore the beauty that lies outside the Tofino Harbour as you embark on an intimate guided kayak trip through the quiet waters of remote inlets away from the busy harbour.

Join us on a beautiful 4.5 hour morning or afternoon trip, or a relaxing 6.5 hour day excursion (for larger groups). Kayaking allows you to explore coastlines that would otherwise be inaccessible by any larger vessels and through this, it opens an opportunity to feel a deeper connection to the ocean as you sit only inches above its surface. As the sun rises in the morning or begins to ease off throughout the afternoon the most common sounds you will hear will be that of your paddle blade as it eases in and out of the water with each stroke you take, only to be contested by the cries of an eagle or a black bear roaming the tidal waters.

Our 30 minute boat ride will take you on a short but sweet ride away from the hustle and bustle of town. Once arriving at our private location you will be given a short safety briefing before entering the kayaks and paddling along the vivid shore line. While enjoying the calm waters and discussing the history of Clayoquot Sound we will also be looking for Harbour Seals, Black Bears, Bald Eagles and various other forms of wildlife that out populate humans in this area. Snack breaks are encouraged and can be done while floating on the water using a healthy piece of Kelp as a natural anchor. On our 6.5 hour trips (groups only) there is the option of adding a catered lunch for an additional fee.
