WATER TAXI

We offer charter water taxi service to any destination in Barkley Sound. Our 29' boat features a large open deck for sightseeing along the way and a closed cabin for those colder days on the water. We have plenty of room for large groups (up to 12 people) and as much gear as you need.

BROKEN GROUP ISLANDS (30-45mins)

Along with our kayak rentals we also offer a flexible shuttle service for paddlers directly to any of the Broken Group Islands. Each group can choose their preferred departure and pick up times any day of the week allowing you to maximize the timing of your trip. The large open ocean channels on either side of the Broken Group make it very difficult to paddle yourself there safely. With our shuttle service we take you directly from the calm water of Bamfield inlet to the calm waters of any of the campsites in the Broken Group, especially important for any groups with non-expert or younger paddlers.

DEER GROUP ISLANDS (45-60mins)

Our shuttle service can give you the peace of mind of a set itinerary so that you know you will arrive at your destination despite the weather conditions. We can also save you a rather long paddle to some of the more distant and less busy sites in the Deer Group, the nearest sites tend to fill up pretty quickly in the high season.

BAMFIELD (1 hour)

We also shuttle groups between Ucluelet and Bamfield. We can pick you up at either destination and take you on a beautiful trip across the whole of outer Barkley Sound. We travel through the beautiful Deer and Broken Group Islands (Pacific Rim National Park) and often see amazing scenery and wildlife along the way (whales, porpoises, sea lions, birds etc.). We also offer full day trips to Bamfield in order to give you time to to explore the local area including fantastic quiet beaches, hiking, local tours and more!

SURVEYS AND CREW BOAT SERVICES

We specialize in extended shuttle service for researchers, surveyors and work crews needing to access Barkley Sound. Our skipper has a strong background in marine science, field biology and commercial diving and can help you get anywhere in local area including the various forestry and aquaculture sites.
