West Coast Wild Zip-Lining
The Kennedy River Watershed is Traditional Tla-o-qui-aht Territory. A view from above would reveal this hidden treasure, a fantastic canyon only steps from Highway 4. Hidden by dense rainforest and cut from centuries of flowing white water, the canyon plunges to over 100 ft. below the road level. The river drops and pools its way through the canyon as it narrows and forces the water through spaces so small the only way to see it is from above… on a zipline. 40-minute drive from town.
Framed by the Clayoquot sound, Pacific Rim National Park, the MacKenzie mountain range and the wild Kennedy river, Ucluelet has always been the perfect place to introduce people to the Pacific Coast Wilderness. The mighty Pacific Ocean surrounds us; it has carved the shores around the jagged mountain ranges of Vancouver Island since the beginning of time. The spectacular vistas here feature snow-capped peaks with waterfalls that form crystal clear creeks; lakes and rivers; crescents of sandy beach protected by rugged rocky points and long twisted inlets dotted with islands in all shapes and sizes. All this is set in an emerald rain forest that produces more bio-mass than any area on earth. It’s an eco-system that supports a very diverse population of wildlife.
