What to Wear

Ucluelet kayaking trips can be warm and cold all at once thanks to constantly changing weather patterns- so we recommend being prepared. It is the wild coast, after all. At a minimum, we suggest layering your clothes..

Kayaking Clothing Suggestions

  • A long-sleeve breathable shirt that’s good in hot and cold climates to protect you from the cold and the sun.
  • Long pants or trousers that are breathable and stretchy – ideally they are also waterproof, but this isn’t necessary as you’ll be wearing a paddling skirt.
  • A change of shorts in case the weather warms up.
  • Fleece jacket or wool sweater that can be removed if too warm.
  • Rain jacket – you never know on the west coast.
  • Warm socks made of breathable materials such as wool. You may want to bring an alternative pair as well.
  • Shoes that you’re comfortable getting wet in such as sturdy strappy sandals, water shoes, or rubber boots.
  • Sunhat or baseball cap and a warm wool or fleece hat.
  • Kayaking gloves (optional)
