Super unique experience to opt out of the grind

18-Oct-2023

I took myself on a solo birthday trip. I wanted to do something active and a little brave. I had kayaked a few times in my life, but I definitely was not a "kayaker" when we started. I wasn't sure what to expect, and even still, the experience was amazing! The communication was clear beforehand. We were out with a small group (myself & 2 other couples.) Our guide was so knowledgeable about the area and history. He also cooked all our meals and each one was gourmet! Delicious! The camping set up was great too. I slept so well each night! I was also shocked at how much gear and luxuries fit in our kayaks.

Amazing trip through Broken Islands

12-Sep-2023

Did a 3 day kayaking tour of the Broken Islands with 3 friends as part of 8 person group. Our guides, Kevin and Kristina were excellent. Both were very knowledgeable and eager to share stories and facts about the islands. They had a strong awareness of our impact on the environment and did whatever they could to minimize our carbon footprint. Throughout the trip they acknowledged the history of the First Nations in this area and demonstrated tremendous respect towards their culture. The food was amazing. We were provided with good quality gear. Would highly recommend touring with Hello Nature - for both the novice and experienced paddler.

Highly recommended, an awesome 3 day trip!

27-Jun-2023

Just recently went on the 3 day kayaking trip in the Broken Island Group with Hello Nature. Amazing trip and definitely a highlight of my holiday. The owner, Kevin and guide were extremely helpful and friendly. Beautiful scenery and the camping was very comfortable with the mat and cot! All the gear was in great condition and the food good. If you are looking for an adventure in the Broken Island Group/Ucluelet then I highly recommend this trip!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if the weather is bad for my trip?

If you are on a multi day trip, we will adjust our route to paddle in sheltered areas. Paddling in the rain can be a wonderful experience when dressed correctly. If we encounter a serious rainstorm or very strong winds and it is unsuitable to be on the water, we will go hiking and tidal pooling, stay in camp and drink warm beverages, play cards, or read a favourite book. Your guides will make sure that everyone is comfortable and happy, regardless of the weather we may encounter.

What should I wear for my tour?

We recommend quick dry shorts or pants (trousers) and a quick dry shirt. Please avoid cotton as it takes a long time to dry and offers poor insulation when wet. Please bring a waterproof jacket, sandals, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and an extra layer for the boat ride.

What equipment is provided by Hello Nature?

All kayaking equipment, Spray skirts and paddling jacket, 5-litre, 20-litre and 30-litre dry bags per person, Laminated marine charts, MSR Papa Hubba 4-person tents, Hellionx Lite Cot, EXPED Downmate Lite 5 sleeping pad, Helinox Chair, Tarps for kitchen & group sitting area, All kitchen equipment, Toilet Paper, A hand wash station, All safety equipment & a first aid kit

How much kayaking experience is required to join one of your trips?

No previous kayaking experience is necessary. We have designed our trips for both active adventurers and those looking for a more relaxing pace.

Is travel insurance necessary?

While travel insurance is not mandatory, we highly recommend that all guests purchase adequate trip cancellation insurance. Having adequate coverage can really take the stress out of the unforeseen. While helpful for everyone, we especially are encouraging guests from outside of Canada to purchase adequate health insurance to cover non-refundable trip costs due to personal or family illness or accident. For detailed information on insurance coverage, please contact your insurance or travel agent. You will be requested to sign a waiver prior to departing on your trip.

How much paddling will we do?

The paddling pace of the tours depends on our guests, the sea conditions and the weather; Multiday tours typically do 4-5 hours of kayaking each day with rest stops
