The bears...great spots for seeing them pretty close without disturbing them. Being in the kayak makes you feel like you're part of the landscape.

Fantastic experience! We had a great morning on the water with TJ. We loved the combination of a boat ride and kayaking - kept everyone in the family happy. Saw other bear watchers in power boats and were so glad that we were in kayaks. We saw lots of bears and enjoyed all that TJ had to share about the flora and fauna of the area. Highly recommend!

We had the great pleasure to experience the island by water, kayaking in a very small group with the best instructor ever! TJay showed us hidden places, prepared salmon and self-caught crabs during dinner time, helped us setting up tents, found bears to watch in the morning and simply went beyond our expectations. Even helping in and out of the kayaks - we happily think back of this two day bear watching tour even after such a long time. We did the tour pre-corona in 2019, however, if you have any doubts before taking a tour with TJay - we can assure you that you'll have a great time. 👍

Had a great time doing the 4 hour kayaking tour to Meares Island with Shale (?) as our guide . Shale was super knowledgeable about the environment and wildlife in the area . Seen river otters, eagles, starfish and jellyfish while paddling along . Would highly recommend this company to anyone in Tofino looking for a awesome kayaking tour :)

Our tour with Shail and TJ was amazing! Even though it poured rain through half of the excursion, we had a great time and saw 4 bears! It was so much better than the boat tours, the bears didn’t mind that we were there. Highly recommend!
