My friend and I drove to Tofino for the day in a week ago to go on the 4 hour Meares Island tour with Tofino Sea Kayaking. The tour itself was incredible, our guide Jesse was very outgoing, knowledgable about the area as well as a great teacher as both of us had never sea kayaked before. The company itself... More

My sister and I celebrated my 60th by coming to Tofino. We sea kayaked to Meares Island, enjoyed a tour of the red cedar forest and had a fantastic time. Jessie was an excellent guide and was knowledgeable about everything on our tour. All levels of ability can kayak on this trip. Thanks to everyone for a memorable half day.

I choose the 4 hours Meares Islands tour which was great fun. You don't need experience in kayaking. The tour is not on the open sea so there were wind and currents but no massive waves so that the ride was fun but not stressfull. Our guide was very knowledgable and provided us with lots of interesting information about the... More

My daughter and I took the Meares Island 4 hour tour on May 18th with guides Jesse and Ben. It was a fantastic experience! The kayaking was so much fun and easy to get the hang of. Everything was explained exceptionally well and I felt very prepared heading out onto the water. Jesse was so knowledgeable and really took the... More

My boyfriend and I visited in April and spent an afternoon sea kayaking to Meares Island. Our guide was so knowledgeable and went above and beyond to tell us stories about the local area, its history and about the surrounding nature. We would recommend Tofino Sea Kayaking to absolutely anyone looking to have a fun and educational day out on... More

We had a great time with Candice on our Island Tour. We learned a lot about the history of Tofino and the local ecosystem. She also made sure we felt safe and confident. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic time! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating - they arranged a schedule change for us over the phone when any other place would have just said no. It would have been a real shame to have missed this tour. We arrived not knowing quite what to expect since neither of us had done sea kayaking... More
