About Us

Celebrating 35 Years of Sea Kayaking Adventures

Tofino Expeditions was founded in 1988 as a single-fleet sea kayaking tour company in the small fishing town of Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. It has grown into a top-ranked international sea kayak outfitter and remains a family-owned and operated company. We are committed to wilderness ethics and the quality of our adventures.

Our team members are passionate about wilderness and the sport of sea kayaking. They are mature individuals who are expert in guiding tradecraft; many hold degrees in the natural sciences, and all are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and skills. We go to extraordinary lengths to meet or exceed our guests’ expectations on every trip and want them to return home refreshed, relaxed, and rejuvenated.

Tofino Expeditions features a range of kayaking journeys worldwide designed to meet the needs and desires of novice and experienced kayakers. We offer value to guests by providing them with extraordinary experiences and unparalleled service at competitive prices. And despite all we do, we constantly challenge ourselves to surpass our own high standards and expand our commitment to our guests.
