Some years ago we kayaked the Broken Group Islands, the #1 destination in Canada for paddlers. (Some would say #1 in the world — but I’d head to Isla Espiritu Santo, Baja California, first if I were you.)
This time I rented a single kayak in Bamfield and paddled directly to the Deer Island group, the closest to town.
Broken Islands are a protected National Park. Nearby Deer Islands are commercially developed, some even with holiday homes.
It was a great, relaxing trip. I saw bear, seals, sea lions and nearly stepped on a baby puffin.
