Reviews on Kayaking trips


Can anyone offer any reviews of the guided trips in and around the area. Was it worth the money? Which outfitter did you use? Did travelling in a group slow you down?

What alternatives are there to these trips?

I have kayaked just a few times, and am considering doing day trips into the Sound from Tofino, but not sure if saving the money is worth missing out on the trips they market so well online :)

Thanks for your help!

1. Re: Reviews on Kayaking trips

I've taken 3-4 trips with Tofino Sea Kayaking (including their Vargas Island overnight) and would definitely recommend them. While I have kayaked many times, I'm not yet comfortable with going out on my own, esp in an area with a fair amount of boat traffic and not being familiar with the currents, etc. But my sister and her BF rented kayaks from them one afternoon and paddled around the harbor a bit on their own and did just fine. I would go with a guide for the Meares Island trip at least (which is the favorite day trip I've done in the area) so you have someone who's familiar with the area, knows where the trailhead is, knows the local flora and fauna, etc.
