The 6-hour kayaking tour with our friends at Paddle West Kayaking is the perfect way to escape the crowds and paddle deeper and farther into the beauty of Clayoquot Sound. There are two different routes that are available on this tour that are dependent on the tide. Our 6-hour Vargas Island Kayaking Tour heads west out of the harbour to the sandy beaches and rugged shores of Vargas Island. This version offers the chance to experience coastal paddling conditions and open views of the Pacific Ocean. We make lots of stops to rest and enjoy wildlife viewing opportunities as well as to make a stop on a sandy landing where you can enjoy the food you brought with you. Our 6-hour Lemmens Inlet Kayaking Tour will take you deep into the protected waters of Lemmens Inlet. You will paddle over the shallow tidal flats through small islets and up close to the steep forested mountains of the Wah-nah-jus-Hilthoois Tribal Park. We will make stops for you to rest and enjoy a break as well as take an extended break on shore to enjoy the lunch that you brought with you.

Great kayak tour of the islands near Tofino

We went for a six-hour trip with our guide. We had a great time. Pack some drinks and a lunch because you will stop for a break mid-tour. We saw bald eagles, river otters, various fish and a few sea lions. Our guide was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the area, the islands and the communities in the area. The boats and equipment were all in good condition. There were four people in our group and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and the experience.

Great first time Kayaking experience!

We went Kayaking with Paddle West last week, we've been wanting to do sea kayaking for a long time and this was the first time we've managed to get round to doing it. It was fantastic, we did the 6 hour trip in a double kayak and went all around the inlet in and out of the islands and stopped off for lunch in the rainforest - which was an amazing experience in itself. Our guide was really friendly and informative and made the whole day very pleasant! Would thoroughly recommend them!

So worth it!

We signed up for the 6 hour trip out to Vargas Island and it was well worth it. Our guide was super passionate about the area and clearly loved his job. He was genuine and very knowledgeable. We learned a ton about the area and had a blast out on the water. I highly recommend this company for its laid back but very professional vibe. We are already planning on coming back to do the other tours!
