Last year we went kayaking for the first time and it was amazing, so we decided to do it again this year. When we booked the trip it was a brilliantly sunny morning and as we left the fog and clouds started to roll in. We paddled around Clayoquot sound and it was fairly calm. Our kayak tour was with Paddle West and our guide Nick was very knowledgeable about Tofino and wildlife. When we were between the islands there was a little wave action happening and I have to say it got my heart pitter pattering a little and I was definitely feeling vulnerable. It was a lovely night, we saw some eagles, a raccoon trying to wrest some mussles off the shore. There were starfish aplenty and Coho were jumping all around us -if only I had a net! We were out there paddling for about 3 hours and it was fabulous. I think a kayak is in my future.
I needed a little recharge, but had to do some contortions to get at it, almost dumped the kayak.
