3 Hour Tour ~ The sheltered waters of the Ucluelet harbour offer an ideal location for an introduction to sea kayaking. Our tours depart from the beach at our Vancouver Island kayaking centre. There are many options for this tour, we may paddle up to a beautiful hidden waterfall, experience and learn about the local fish hatchery, or explore the outer harbour limits.
The harbour is full of wildlife; watch for black bears along the shoreline, rich intertidal life beneath your kayak and eagles circling overhead. Harbour seals pop their heads up to watch us paddle by and sea lions bark to us from the fishing docks along the water’s edge. Historic old pre-wartime houses, big steel fishing boats and old wooden trollers tell the story of this quaint fishing village.
Ucluelet is one of the most accessible ports on the west coast of Vancouver Island where you can experience the geography, the rich sea life and wildlife, and have an excellent paddling opportunity.
