The Broken Group Islands Day Kayak Tour begins in Ucluelet with a half hour boat ride with your guide, your kayak, and all the equipment needed to for the day. Once ashore on a sheltered beach you will be taught how to set up the kayaks and gear. Paddling lessons will be given and any safety concerns and procedures will be explained.
The day will be spent kayaking through a vast maze of islands, islets, and rocky outcrops while being surrounded by spectacular scenery. After a few hours of paddling, you will stop for a fully catered picnic lunch on one of the numerous sandy beaches. Throughout the day your guides will talk about the natural and cultural history of the Broken Group Islands the traditional home to the Tseshaht First Nation.
After lunch we will further explore the protected waters of the Broken Group Islands with their hidden ancient middens, fish traps, and canoe runs. There will be plenty of time to lose yourself in the rich and colourful intertidal life as well as the opportunity to see wildlife such as eagles, whales, shore birds, sea lions, seals, mink, river otter, and sea otters.
At the end of the day our water taxi will return you to Ucluelet with an estimated arrival time of 5:00 pm.
Your adventure awaits!
