Looking for things to do during the storm season in Tofino? T’ashii Paddle School will be offering tours over the November remembrance day long weekend in Tofino BC. Our dugout canoe is out of the water for the winter, but there is still great paddling and cultural activities that you can enjoy over this long weekend. Its a good idea to book ahead, with the season winding down, we’re not always by the phone last second. For details of the trips and book online click on the links.
Explore the calmest place to paddle in Tofino. Surrounded by rain forest on the inlet side of the peninsula this is an excellent way to try stand up paddleboarding for the first time without having to deal with open ocean swell. With a full wetsuit on its even a treat to get in the water, not that you have to… Our Inlet Paddleboard tour takes you through the basics of paddling as you explore a unique and secluded marine environment. The only catch is you can only paddle on the inlet during high tide.
Our trip times for the long weekend are:
9:30am Fri Nov 11
10:30am Sat Nov 12 & Sun Nov 13
