Enjoy river and ocean kayaking at a variety of venues in Squamish, thanks to the municipality's ideal location at the mouth of the Squamish River and the north end of Howe Sound.
With dozens of scenic bays, inlets, and stretches of open water to choose from, ocean kayaking near Squamish is an enjoyable and impressive adventure.
Porteau Cove Provincial Park, located 20km/12.4mi south of Squamish, is a great place to launch for a scenic shoreline paddle. Other ocean-kayaking areas in Howe Sound recommended by Tourism Squamish include Pam Rocks, Gambier Island, Anvil Island, and Christie Islet.
For those seeking an easy paddle or introduction to kayaking, the Mamquam River is a great option. Flowing directly through Squamish, it offers calm waters and lots of opportunities to view local birds, wildlife, and plants.
