Kayaking & Canoeing
Harmony Islands Marine Provincial Park (Albert Normandin photo)
Ocean kayaking, lake paddling, whitewater kayaking... for kayak and canoe enthusiasts, British Columbia’s spectacularly scenic regions offer adventures for all skill levels.
BC is one of the world's premier ocean kayaking destinations, thanks to its jagged coastline and many islands, inlets, and coves. Kayakers enjoy easy-to-challenging waters and myriad wildlife viewing opportunities. Orcas, as well as grey and humpback whales, are commonly seen during their migration seasons. Watch for marine birds, seals, otters and porpoises too.
Launch from Deep Cove or False Creek near Vancouver’s urban environment, or kayak through the isolated Broken Group Islands off Vancouver Island’s west coast.
Prefer canoeing? Head to the renowned Bowron Lakes Canoe Circuit in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region. Or try the Thompson Okanagan’s Wells Gray Provincial Park, laden with gorgeous waterfalls, and home to Murtle Lake, which boasts 100km/62mi of shoreline.
Meanwhile, whitewater kayakers flock to the legendary Stikine River in Northern BC and the Sunshine Coast’s Skookumchuck Narrows.
