Kayaking ideas- north Vancouver Island or Sunshine Coast

Any suggestions for great 1/2day or full day kayaking trips. We have 3 days after a week at Tofino before we return to Vancouver. Thanks for your ideas.

Both take time to get to from Tofino and if it is just for a short kayak trip there are lots of closer areas with great scenery, including Tofino. However, I would suggest the north end of the island over the sunshine coast just becuase of the extra ferries and possible delays for the sunshine coast.

Consider spending a few days in the Port McNeill / Telegraph Cove area and combine kayaking, with a whale watching trip, and a grizzly bear day trip. If time allows visit the Umista Cultural Centre in Alert Bay.

also prefer north end of island over Sunshine Coast ..but if you just want a day kayak trip and you can't find anything at the north end then you might also look at Quadra Island..will give you a taste of the east side of the island. Alert Bay and U'mista is a great 1/2 day trip from Port Mc Neill..love the area around there..
