Vancouver Island is a haven for both lake and ocean kayaking, and it also has great places for canoeing.

Want an ocean paddling experience? Vancouver Island is known for its isolated beaches, old growth rainforests and abundant marine life. Glide silently past otters, sea lions and shore birds in their natural surroundings for an eco-friendly glimpse of some of the island's best-kept secrets.

Johnstone Strait, Broughton Archipelago, the Broken Group Islands, Clayoquot Sound, the Gulf Islands, Nanaimo, and the Discovery Islands are popular ocean kayaking areas.

Vancouver Island's freshwater paddling offers an experience for every kayaker or canoeist. Paddle the the remote 48km/30mi, 12-lake Sayward Forest Canoe Route or explore the campground- and village-lined Cowichan Lake. Enjoy a leisurely outing on Elk and Beaver lakes, just outside Victoria city limits, or do a multi-day wilderness adventure in Main Lake Provincial Park on Quadra Island.
