Tofino Sea Kayaking

2014 brings new opportunities as Liam is excited to take on a management role with Tofino Sea Kayaking (TSK). Tofino Sea Kayaking, established in 1988, continues to be a center for all things kayaking on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Liam is excited to build on the base of tour and outfitting options, to bring additional kayak training and experiences.
