  1. Bears by Kayak

Bear's by Kayak! (4hrs)

When the tide withdraws in Clayoquot Sound, the black bears step out from the tree line and scour the rocky shore for their next meal. You and your guide will set out from Tofino harbour at this time with kayaks secured to the roof of your shuttle boat.

Once a bear is spotted, it's time to get in the water!
With you in your kayak, and a paddle in your hand, your group will move along the shore, keeping a respectful and safe distance from the bear.

As Tofino's only bear-watching tour by kayak, find yourself in awe of west coast wildlife without the megaphone and loud hum of a boat's motor.
You will hear the crunch as the bears eat crabs, and the sound of their heavy paws along the rocks.

You will never forget the time you kayaked with the bears!

kayak adventuresMeares Island is the heart of Clayoquot Sound region, north of Tofino. It is also home to Opitsaht, the main village of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations.

In a 3-day kayak & camping dream, this adventure tour will lead you around Meares, skirting peek-a-boo reefs, fog-shrouded islands and shallow tidal channels surrounded by ancient rainforests. It is simply a remainder of this unique and stunning environment.

This kayak tour has been specifically designed for absolute beginners or kayakers with minimal experience paddling in tidal currents. For the entire trip we will remain in the protection of the sheltered inlet, void of huge swells or the need to launch off beaches in strong surf.
