About Black Bear Kayak Tofino

Black Bear Kayak, Tofino - we love what we do!

Tofino Kayak AdventuresFounded in 2010, Black Bear Kayaking is the newest base for kayak adventure trips in Tofino.
Enthusiastic, highly-motivated and well experienced in what we do, we have managed to establish a successful reputation for guided kayak tours throughout Clayoquot Sound.

We are centrally located at 3rd and Main Street, right at the gate to the breathtaking panorama of the Sound, its surrounding mountains and of course a lot of marine and land based wildlife.

Our fleet consists of 15' and 17' Delta single kayaks and 20' Delta T doubles. All boats and equipment are new and of high quality to ensure as much fun and comfort for you as possible.

Black Bear Kayaking is very aware of your safety. All our guides are certified Kayak guides and we are operating according to the guidelines of the Sea Kayaking Guide Alliance of British Columbia (SKGABC).

We speak English and German, a little Spanish..and we will continue to work on that.

With professionalism and experience, our main goal is to provide you with an outstanding Kayak tour!

Find us on Main Street (down 3rd street), with Storm Light Outfitters!
