the reason we went to tofino is because i wanted to explore clayoquot sound, which is a beautiful, diverse, and endangered ecosystem. it was home to anti-logging protests back in the 80s.
it was on the top of my list of places i wanted to see in the world. We booked a 6 hour kayak tour called ‘clayoquot explorer’ because i wanted to spend as much time paddling through the sound as possible.
the tour was not aptly named. we basically paddled out to the very edge of the sound along the pacific ocean. it was nice in its own right, but not at all what i wanted. the next day we went into the sound and hiked up a mountain though, so that made up for the disappointment. those photos are to come
