As you leave the village of Tofino marina you cruise through the tidal waters of Browning Passage and head up into the mirror calm waters of Fortune Channel. Along the way, lining the tall treetops of Clayoquot Sound you may spot a bald eagle, poised and ready to swoop down to capture his morning meal or harbour seals and California sea lions basking on the rocks as they laze in the morning sun. Sea otters frequent these sheltered waters and are often seen enjoying a fresh caught meal on their bellies as they float gracefully on the surface. You may even spot the occasional whale or pod of Orcas making their way through the deep channels. It’s a great adventure for young and old and seasickness is rarely a problem. Bears also frequent the low tidal waters in search of shellfish, crustaceans and even seaweed. It is an amazing thrill to see them in the wild and undisturbed by human presence. Keep your eyes open as you scan the shoreline, grey wolves cruise up and down the rocky shores in search of food.
