We were recommended to drop by here for this delicious hot drink, very welcome after a cycle ride in the pouring rain. Leaps and bounds above the Starbucks version! Also had a slice of the most divine pumpkin pie. Lovely friendly people here, well worth a visit!

Two years ago, I brought my sister and brother-in-law to Tofino and we spent a day with TSK. This time, my friend Jurgen and I did a 4-day trip with Andy, a very experienced guide. It was amazing! Of course, the scenery is unbeatable but Andy really made the experience special. He's extremely knowledgeable in marine biology, natural history, indigenous... More

Big thanks to Liam and Arv for a great day in the surf. They made us feel very comfortable and safe as they taught patience and technique for surf launches and landings. With very little experience in a single kayak, I was extremely nervous to take this lesson my husband signed us up for. In the end, I was so... More

We did the 5.5 hour hidden places tour and loved it. The tour was relaxed, the group was very mixed in abilities and you had the choice to go in a double or single kayak. For these reasons I think the trip is good for all skill levels. We have kayaking experience so opted to go in single kayaks for... More

Way too fast paced - we were asked to bring snacks and water for the tour but didn't have even a second to stop and take a photo or have a sip of water. We just kept going and going. It felt almost like having a safety guide along with us rather than a tour guide - we couldn't hear... More

We chose this company based on Trip Advisor reports and we were very pleased. Wanting to spend as much time as possible on the water, we opted for the 5 1/2 hour 'Hidden Places' guided tour. Brandon was our guide and we were so impressed with his skills, his knowledge and his manner of presenting information. He answered our many... More

Sea kayaking is the only way to really experience Tofino harbour and Clayoquot Sound. We took their 3 hour tour to Meares island, explored the boardwalk and giant Cedars. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides pass along information on the local ecology, environment and history as well as that of the local indigenous people. Safety is important with this company and... More
