Exploring by Canoe
Canoeing around Clayoquot Sound is a time-honoured tradition introduced by the Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nation.
Children especially love looking down into the cool, clear shallows as fresh and salt water meet in the estuary.
Explore miles of coastline, replete with marine life like seals, otters, marten, bear, eagles and puffins. Often, whales can be seen feeding in nearby shallow bays.
Whales Feeding in Shallow Bays
A favourite daytrip is an eight-kilometre paddle from the Outpost to the floating gardens at Freedom Cove. Stop for lunch at a secluded beach and visit a floating artist studio/organic garden along the way.
