Paddle West Kayaking.

Ucluelet is the hidden gem of the West Coast Vancouver Island Kayaking scene. While most paddlers head to Toquart Bay in order to access Barkley Sound and to kayak in the famous Broken Group Islands; Ucluelet sits on the fringe of Barkley Sound where paddlers seldom go. Launching from Ucluelet allows access to the spectacular open coast scenery and abundant sea life that has made Barkley Sound famous, but without having to contend with the crowds often found in the Broken Group Islands.

While kayaking along the sheltered confines of the historic Ucluelet Harbour; Bald Eagles, Seals and Sea Lions regularly make appearances. Heading out of the harbour you will get to explore kelp forests and rugged shorelines teeming with intertidal life. As you paddle out even further and nose into the open sea you'll experience true open coast paddling and the type of rugged coastal scenery that sea kayakers dream about!

Operating out of two waterfront locations in both Tofino (Clayoquot Sound) and Ucluelet (Barkley Sound), Paddle West Kayaking offers a series of professionally guided kayak day tours.

Discover the Harbour:
A relaxing get away in the sheltered water's of the Ucluelet harbour. A great tour for first time kayakers and wildlife watchers. Seals, Sea Lions, Bald Eagles and Black Bears (at low tide) are sometimes seen on this trip. At low tides we'll explore the shoreline while learning about the unique creatures and ecology of the intertidal zone. If you're a family with young children or are looking to explore the quaint fishing village of Ucluelet but only have a limited time; our Discover the Harbour tour is the trip for you.
2.5 hours $59.00 (plus HST)

Discover the Coast:
Leave the shelter of the Ucluelet Harbour and explore the beautiful coastline of Northern Barkley Sound! This tour offers excellent opportunities to view both marine and terrestrial wildlife as you paddle along shorelines and through island channels & reefs that can only be accessed by sea kayak. This trip involves a bit more paddling than the 2.5 hour tour but also includes a brief stop on land to explore and have a snack. Suitable for beginners and intermediates alike.
4 hours - $75 (plus HST)

Open Coast Explorer:
Experience what it's like to paddle a kayak in the open ocean! Head out into the open waters of Northern Barkley Sound where you'll feel the thrill of paddling in ocean swells while exploring the rugged shorelines and open coast islands this area is famous for. Great opportunities for viewing wildlife such as seals, sea lions and bald eagles (and if you're very lucky, even the occasional whale!). Includes a stop off on a secluded island or beach for lunch.
6 hours - $99 (plus HST)

A brief introduction to kayak safety and paddling technique is included at the start of each trip, and no previous experience is required on any of our Ucluelet kayak tours
