Adding Bear, Wolf, and Whale Watching in 2020

Clayoquot Connections tours have provided safe and affordable marine cruising since 2000. We offer trips to the Meares Island Big Tree Trail and Lone Cone trail, a Sunset Cruise to the Lennard Island Lighthouse, a 1½ hr Harbour Cruise, Scenic Cruises, Family Fishing Fun, and more.

To compliment our 26 ft. (8 m) Lifeboat the 'KLECO' which is built to carry a crew of 22, but is licenced for 12 guests, we also provide Water Taxi service on our faster 22 ft. (6.8 m) Panga boat the 'REEF RAFF' for Island camping, hiking, beach-combing, visiting Freedom Cove, and remote surfing.

Experience Clayoquot Sound at a relaxed pace for a more intimate encounter with nature. Wildlife here is abundant. Exploring, camping, and beach-combing in Clayoquot Sound is always a blast!

For those who wish to participate in investigating tidal lagoons, trails, remote island beaches, and the wildlife of the Sound, it is hoped they will gain an insight to the interdependent state of all the elements of nature. That is, how everything (including us) in the natural world is connected and how precious it truly is.

Dennis the owner-operator has an intimate knowledge of Clayoquot Sound and great respect for the ocean. He and his other fully licenced skippers are passionate about showing guests the pristine wilderness that Clayoquot has to offer and the enthusiasm is contagious!

Clayoquot Sound will put a smile in your heart!
