T'ashii Paddle School:
Tofino's source for Paddle Boarding Adventure
T’ashii’s stand up paddleboarding program is about trying new things, having fun, and exploring! Join leading paddleboard instructors and explore the ecology and marine environment of lesser known areas of the West Coast.
Tucked away in the unique mudflat intertidal area of Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Park, the inlet providers paddlers with the opportunity to explore the calmest and most relaxing area to paddle in Tofino.
T'ashii Paddle School is a First Nations owned company specializing in outdoor education from paddling skills to cultural interpretation. T’ashii is a Tla-o-qui-aht word meaning “a path on land or on water.”
Inlet tours meet at Jamies Rainforest Inn 1258 Pacific Rim Hwy. Other paddleboarding tours launch from different locations. T'ashii brings all gear to the paddling location.

"Peaceful Canoe Experience. Our group was comprised of a 7, 13, 14, and 18-year-old. With that, we were looking for something we could do together and not leave the little one behind. The T'ashii canoe experience fit the bill as the 7-year-old was able to sit in the middle of the canoe and bang on a drum to keep us all motivated during the paddle out to the island.
The highlight of the experience was the song that was sung by the guide at sunset. It was quite peaceful. It reminded me of my experience at Antelope Canyon in Page, AZ (last Navajo guided tour of the day so he performed a flute ceremony as we walked out of the cave - very peaceful). Wonderful experience."
