Ladysmith is one of western Canada's leading kayaking hotspots.
The annual Vancouver Island Paddlefest each May is widely regarded as a premier west coast paddlesports event. Several internationally renowned kayak manufacturers operate in the area, as well as kayak tour operators and rental companies, including Sealegs Kayaking Adventures, which operates from a prime piece of Transfer Beach Park waterfront.
Vancouver Island Paddlefest
Vancouver Island Paddlefest is a weekend kayak extravaganza hosted by Sealegs Kayaking that attracts thousands each year to Transfer Beach Park. Kayaking workshops, demonstrations, clinics, and a retail trade show are all on the agenda. Paddlefest is also a great opportunity to introduce kids to kayaking. One of the more humorous competitions at the event is the cardboard kayak race.
