Bowen Island Sea Kayaking

Bowen Island, a short 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay and one hour from Vancouver, is so close, yet worlds away. Established in 1996, Bowen Island Sea Kayaking is dedicated to providing you with safe and enjoyable kayak excursions from self-guided paddles to 3 hour, full day and multi-day tours of the beautiful Howe Sound area. We also rent stand up paddle boards!

The 15th Annual Round Bowen Challenge on Saturday June 27, 2015 is a 32 kilometre race open to kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards and outriggers as solo or relay team members.

Come for a leisurely daytime paddle, a full moon tour, or a heart-pounding race, and revel in the beauty that is so close, but world's away - good times naturally.
