Canoeing & Kayaking

Canoeing & Kayaking

There is an encompassing silence and a sense of peace that can begin to engulf you as you quietly draw your paddle back and forth, gliding in your kayak or canoe to find your way to a secluded beach or landing spot. A bobbing head lets you know a seal has seen you come by, and the eagle lets loose its distinctive song, alerting you to its presence. You bring your craft to a safe landing place and journey into a pristine old growth forest to walk among ancient trees, some of which have thrived for more than 1000 years. Your heartbeat drops further and you have genuine awe for the harmony of nature. You feel refreshed and reconnected.

Journeying by canoe or kayak has been a natural activity for Tofitians, Ucluetians, and local First Nation  communities for many years. Your journey can be a few hours or a few days, depending on your preferences. We have an excellent assortment of companies and guides in our communities to make your experience of this beautiful part of the world truly enriching.  Slow down, get connected, and allow the natural rhythm of the sea and land to take your breath away.
