Perfect for all skill levels and ages, this year-round activity is an easy, fun way to get out on the water and discover the beauty of Clayoquot Sound, part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
Choose your adventure:
- Novice paddlers can take in a guided sea kayak tour of Tofino Inlet's calm waters, or even an excursion to Meares Island with a walking tour of its Big Tree Trail. Along the way, seasoned guides will share their knowledge of the ecology and natural history of the region.
- Experienced kayakers can either rent a kayak or bring their own boat.
- Guided overnight trips in Clayoquot Sound are popular with those who have had a taste of sea kayaking, and just want more.
Speaking of more, the waves off our Tofino beaches are an enticing challenge to colourful surf kayakers, who can be seen paddling right alongside surfers.
NOTE: Before venturing out on your own, make sure you are prepared for Clayoquot Sound’s potentially dangerous waters, including powerful tides.
