If you want to have the best kayaking, Ucluelet is the best place to be. I went kayaking to a lot of places but this place has given me a unique experience. The water is sheltered and calm. While you are at it, you can watch sea lions, harbor seals, bears, eagles, and some whales if you are lucky.

The whale watching is one of the best things that I did in this city. The best time to do this March through April. I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Gray Whale and Orca Whales. Go get to see so many of them. There are whale watching tours available, just choose the one that suits your budget. Some of them will also take you to bear watching.
