Beginning in late April—when sleepy bears rouse from hibernation—and extending through mid-September, seasoned guides pilot boats of up to eight tour-takers across the calm waters of Clayoquot Sound during 2- to 2.5-hour excursions. Experienced leaders scour the shores of Meares Island, pointing out black bears venturing down to the beaches at low tide to scoop up lunches of rock crab and starfish while working on their tans. Guests should dress warmly and slip feet into closed shoes, bringing along a camera and binoculars for enhanced memory preservation.<p>
Though Ocean Outfitters sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available. Ocean Outfitters offers discounted rates for students, seniors, and children.<p>

About Ocean Outfitters
Based along the wave-lapped shores and lush topography of Tofino, Ocean Outfitters grants guests an intimate and informative exploration of majestic West Coast flora and fauna during environmentally responsible tours. With the salt-laced air tousling their hair, the company’s quintet of seasoned skippers pilots a fleet of meticulously maintained vessels about area waterways, letting loose their wisdom on the region’s wildlife and geology. Keels skim along the craggy, mist-laced coastline, granting guests a chance to snap scenic pictures or request autographs from whales whose songs have appeared on countless new-age albums. Ocean Outfitters' dedication to environmental stewardship is why the company strictly adheres to the guidelines for responsible whale watching, and supports local wildlife research and rescue programs through donations of a portion of its profits.
