Kayaking & Canoeing

Kayakers enjoy a multitude of choices along the Sunshine Coast, from easy paddles along sheltered coastline to whitewater adventures in surging rapids.
Kayaking Near Gibsons
One easy option for kayakers or canoers is to launch in Gibsons Harbour, admiring the sailboats in the marina, and paddle in Shoal Channel, following the shoreline. The Vancouver Island land mass to the west shelters these waters from harsher ocean weather conditions.
Prefer to make a kayak or canoe crossing over to a nearby island? Keats Island, Gambier Island, Bowen Island, and Paisley Island are all within eyeshot of Gibsons. With luck, kayakers can spot dolphins, whales, seals, and porpoises. On the shores, watch out for grazing deer, or bald eagles perched in nearby trees.
