— FAQ —


If you are looking for the opportunity to escape and explore for longer than a single day, the pristine waters of Clayoquot Sound are the place to be — in fact, Clayoquot offers some of the best multi-day kayaking on Vancouver Island. Designed around marine conditions and guest preferences, our tours take place on the white sand shores of Vargas Island, Flores Island, and Vancouver Island. All tour locations offer rugged shorelines, sandy beaches, and sheltered channels — not to mention towering mountains dressed in old growth forest. 

Explore the coastline searching for wildlife, big and small. Camp beneath the stars or the canopy of the rainforest. Eat delicious, nutritious and fresh meals inspired by the West Coast and prepared by your guide. Watch the sunset as you fall asleep to the sound of gently crashing waves. Wake up as the sunrises over the mountains of Vancouver Island. A multi-day kayak trop is an incredible way to escape from the routines of every day life and live simply by the tides

The shores of Vargas and Flores Islands are popular places for grey whales to feed — not to mention nearby Cleland Island Ecological Reserve, home to a variety of nesting birds including the Rhinoceros auklet, Pigeon guillemot and plenty of Black oystercatchers. Transient Orcas and the Humpback whale are known to use the waters off of Vargas and Flores as feeding grounds in the summer as well. Land loving mammals like the black bear and the coastal wolf are also scattered around Clayoquot Sound. The opportunities for wildlife on a multi-day kayak trip in Clayoquot are vast.

Required Paddling Experience

Our multi-day tour requires no previous paddling experience but we suggest that you be familiar with camping in a wilderness setting. It is also recommended that you have the physical ability to sit in a kayak and paddle for four to six hours a day. The paddling is often not strenuous but depending on conditions more physical exertion may be required. The tour and the destination campsites will be determined by the group’s experience and abilities.

What to Bring

Paddle West Kayaking provides all the kayaking and safety gear required for the tour, your guide, wilderness camping fees and West Coast inspired meals.

You are responsible for providing your own camping set up which includes a tent, sleeping bag and sleeping pad, personal clothing and other personal items. If you do not have your own camping set up, Paddle West Kayaking rents such items for a reasonable extra cost.
