Tsimka has created a vibrant, integral and seamless experience for paddlers. While the beauty of Clayoquat Sound speaks for itself, it was definitely enhanced by paddling in a dugout canoe hand carved by Tmiksa's father, a Tla-o-qui-aht master carver, and hearing about the past and present of the Nuu-chah-nulth land, seas and people. We saw seals, eagles, jelly fish, and an outrageous sunset. T'ashii Paddle has a few boats so can accommodate sole travelers to larger groups. I've done day paddles with various west coast outfitters - this one is top shelf.

I was looking for a company with whom to go paddle boarding and from an extensive internet search, T’ashii was the cheapest by a bit of a margin. They didn’t have their own shop, and set up a table by the beach, but this was perfectly suitable. Neither me nor my partner had ever paddle boarded before, but the young gentleman who took us out was very patient with us trying and failing to stand on our boards. He showed us around the McKenzie beach on the water and told us a little bit of history, but was happy to advise and help as we spent most of our time attempting to stand up. It was incredibly fun and I’d highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t paddleboarded before or is very new to it.

We went here for some stand-up paddling and it was a wonderful experience. The views were nice and our tour guide/instructor, River, was insightful and fun! We did the Mackenzie beach excursion.

Janessa was our tour guide on the canoe trip to Meares Island. My spouse and I loved the trip. It was a beautiful, educational, and inspiring canoe trip. Janessa's stories and her recounting of the history (past and present) of her tribe and other first nations of the area were very special indeed. The cherry on the cake was canoeing in a traditional canoe: great exercise and a different way to experience Clayoquot Sound. Last but not least was the awesome hike on Meares Island to visit the beautiful and old cedar trees. Thank you, Janessa!

Tommy guided us in the wooden canoe ... we all paddled through the glass calm water, it rained just a little bit and as soon as we got to Meares island we dried out waking through the forest under the canopy of such huge majestic trees. Tommy shared stories of his ancestors and sand as we paddled. It was so beautiful and peaceful. We found the paddling to be easy with our family of 4 (2 children 16 + 11). Wear comfortable warm clothing + shoes. T'ashii provided rain coats. Thank you Tommy, really loved meeting you.
