Bring Your Kayak on Vacation! Tofino Kayaking and Camping: Safe, Long Term Parking
Thinking of heading out on a kayaking trip - this is the place to come! True wilderness as soon as you leave the harbour. Head over to Lemmen's Inlet for the day or over to Vargas Island beach for a week or two... Return to Tofino and then head down to Ucluelet for a tour of the Broken Group Islands. There is safe long term parking in both communities so strap you kayak onto your vehicle and take it on a vacation!
* Stick it on your fridge * Fold it into your pocket * Put it up by your coffee maker * Tape it to your dashboard
Jump in your kayak and bird watch in Jensen's Bay, paddle up Lemmen's Inlet, grab your board and go for a surf at high tide, check out tide pools on your favourite beach at low tide, build a sand castle and let the ocean claim it, start a beach fire and watch the stars until the tide rolls in. In Tofino, we do it with the tides!
|Take a trip with us as we paddle across the Tofino harbour and explore the local islands by Meares Island. Small beaches, Meares Island Big Tree Trail, beautiful coves, kelp beds, homesteads and old growth forests. A perfect day trip close to Tofino.|
