Coastal Waters Kayaking Adventure

Coastal Waters Kayaking Adventure Tour Overview

Kayakers will love this guided Vancouver Island kayaking journey to the islands that lie just outside of the Ucluelet Harbour, venturing into the Barkley Sound.

The Barkley Sound is one of those rare places that you feel miles from civilization - right outside of the town.

This tour offers an incredible opportunity for kayakers to experience the diversity of marine and terrestrial wildlife, paddling the ever-changing shorelines and island channels and reefs only accessible by sea kayak. Your adventure starts here.

Beginning in 2023, Hello Nature Adventure tours will include a micro beach clean up on all day trips.  Once we pick a beach, we will go ashore and make a plan of where to start.  We will work together in teams removing as much marine debris as possible, sort the debris into categories to gather data and make sure we can recycle as much as possible.

Trip Advisor Review, July 2018

Spent the day with Phil on the Coastal Waters tour. Had a great time! A great lunch was served mid trip. Trip concluded with a tour of the north harbour, saw a mother black bear and three cubs! Thanks Phil for a great day!
