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 Sechelt
Directly north of Sechelt, experience the tranquil expanse of Sechelt Inlet, as well as the adjoining Salmon Inlet and Narrows Inlet. Surrounded by the Coast Mountains, kayakers and canoers will find plenty of places to stop for a picnic or go swimming, including Halfway Beach, Piper Point, and Tzoonie Narrows.
At nearby Halfmoon Bay and Secret Cove, paddle the sheltered waters of Smuggler's Cove, which has a colourful history of smuggling liquor during Prohibition and Chinese immigrants into the United States. Experienced kayakers can paddle out to Buccaneer Bay between North Thormanby Island and South Thormanby Island and stop off at the large, sandy beaches. 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.
