Each day we will have the chance to take in the rugged and breath taking beauty of the coast as we water taxi to the Broken Group Islands.

Private excursions can be arranged for groups of 4 or more guests.
We will meet at 200 Hemlock Street at the Small Craft Harbour to load all gear and head out, the water taxi will take approx. 30-60 min. You you will get a chance to take in the rugged and breath taking beauty of the coast and Barkley Sound. We will be dropped of at one of the many sandy beaches within the Broken Group Islands, where we unload all our gear and kayaks. After unloading and sending off the water taxi we will now proceed to pack all our gear into the kayaks, don’t worry, we will assist and teach you how to fit everything in, do a safety pre-trip talk, explaining and demonstrating the fundamentals of kayaking; like how to get in and out, proper sitting position, how to paddle, what to do in an emergency and of course answer any questions or concerns you might have. Your Guide will assist you if needed with launching your kayak and off we go.
Please never be shy of asking questions, whether it is about safety, kayaking, the abundant sea and wild life we encounter or forest ecology. All our Guides have been working in this part of the world for some time now and are extremely knowledgeable about the area and most plants and critters that live here.
Our itinerary will be determined by group ability and weather. Just to give you a rough idea we are aiming to paddle 4-6 hours a day. So there is plenty of time for other activities and relaxing. As we are paddling in between the islands there are plenty of opportunities to take pictures, have a snack and relaxing. Our philosophy is comfort , we believe that fun and adventure shouldn’t be painful or to strenuous. With that in mind we will make sure to have a fine balance between covering ground and giving everyone enough rest in between paddles. At around noon we will stop for our first lunch break, your guide will prepare a delicious meal while you kick back and relax and take in the beauty nature has to offer.
After everyone's belly is filled and we all had a good rest we will continue to paddle within the park. In the afternoon the water taxi will pick us up and bring us to our private glamping site. Your guide will point out all facilities, sleeping tubes and take you on a tour of the camp. Snacks and hot drinks will be available shortly after.
Dinner will be served between 6 - 7 pm. Every evening we will have a campfires where we can share our favourite moments from the day or you could watch and enjoy the sunset. Before we all say good night and go dream about the ocean, we will have a quick talk about the next day's schedule.
We aim to have breakfast around 7 am giving us plenty of time to enjoy our morning coffee. Each day the water taxi will drop us off at different locations allowing us to explore the majority of the Broken Group Islands in 3 days. There will be plenty of opportunity to discover inter-tidal life , explore old-growth forests, and ancient First Nation Village sites.
On the final kayaking day, after paddlling for the day, we will be picked up by water taxi and whisked back to Ucluelet. We will exchange email addresses and hugs so we can share photos and keep in touch.
