Kayaking & Canoeing

The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region offers a host of kayaking and canoeing opportunities, all within reach of the city of Vancouver.
Enjoy ocean kayaking at Bowen Island or marvel at colourful marine life – from whales to sea stars – while paddling in Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park, just off Powell River.
Another Sunshine Coast highlight is the Powell Forest Canoe Route, which has a week’s worth of paddling on eight lakes. Closer to Vancouver, don’t miss canoeing or kayaking on Buntzen Lake or in Deep Cove.
Whitewater kayakers can get their thrills on rapids suitable for all levels, from the powerful Skookumchuk Narrows on the Sunshine Coast to Whistler’s curving River of Golden Dreams.
Ocean Kayaking Highlights
Bowen Island is one hour from Vancouver, including a scenic 20-minute ferry ride, and is situated at the mouth of Howe Sound. Kayakers can weave around a multitude of smaller islands, each offering its own brand of scenery and wildlife. Explore the east side from Snug Cove, head north for mountain peak views, or head west for the Pasley Island archipelago and Keats Island.
