Outpost Wilderness Activities - Clayoquot Wilderness Resorts, Tofino, Vancouver Island, Canada

The Bedwell River estuary is a marine playground for beginner and expert kayakers. Intertidal play makes for ever-changing landscapes and prolific wildlife viewing.

Favourite kayak excursions include whale, porpoise and bear watching in nearby Warren Bay, and the day trek to Flores Island's Wild Side First Nations Interpretive Trail, where hiking and kayaking mix along marked trails of between 5 and 12 kilometres in length.

The most popular on-property kayak adventure has to be "the circuit" -- a two-hour loop involving horses, river kayaks, and ear-to-ear grins.

Guests ride in a wooden parade wagon drawn by draft horses "Pete and Poke", up alder alley and through lush forest to where the Bedwell and Urses rivers meet. Then, they kayak the gentle emerald shallows back down to the Outpost, starting all over again, if they wish.

Experienced guides lead the way. Instruction and safety gear provided. No experience necessary.

Paddle Bedwell Sound at 'seal level', watching for foraging bears, otters, spawning salmon, and eagle nests along the way. Ride the tide in and out of the river estuary.
