Kayaking & Canoeing
Family kayaking (Dave Heath photo)
Salt Spring Island and its surrounding waters feature some of the finest kayaking on Canada's west coast.
The sheltered waters of Ganges Harbour are perfect for short daytrips. The 135km/83mi of coastline invite leisurely exploration from numerous launch points dotted around the island (Southey Point, Ruckle Park and Beddis Beach included) Overnight and longer expeditions let one glide amidst the islands, islets and reefs that comprise the magnificent Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.
Kayak Rentals, Lessons & Tours
Kayaks strapped atop rooftop carriers are common sights aboard ferries bound for Salt Spring. For those who travel light, however, a handful of outfitters on the island offer gear rentals, lessons and a variety of short and long-haul group tours. Book in advance, as the excursions are popular.
