The trips in the Bamfield area are numerous and range from a few hours in the inner harbour to a few days in the Deer Group. Although campsites in the Deer Group are generally quite small and will only accommodate a few tents, the views over Barkley Sound and the Pacific Ocean make them some of the best on the coast. The trip described begins in Bamfield and covers most of the islands in the Deer Group. For paddlers looking for a shorter excursion, a couple of day trips around Bamfield are described. The pounding surf and relentless swells of Vancouver Island’s west coast breed fear in the minds of many kayakers.
