Kayaking & Canoeing

Family kayaking (Dave Heath photo)

Canoeing and kayaking in and near Vancouver provides a new perspective on the city's blend of urban and natural beauty.

From a watercraft, Vancouver's cityscape is nearly always framed by surrounding mountains and ocean. Vancouver's downtown core and the famous Stanley Park share a peninsula bordered by two prime ocean kayaking locations.

To the west is English Bay, part of the Pacific Ocean's Strait of Georgia, and directly to the south is False Creek – "false" because it is actually a protected inlet that extends from English Bay, dividing downtown Vancouver from the rest of the city to the south.

Just thirty minutes' drive east, Indian Arm offers excellent wilderness paddling in a pristine setting. Deer Lake in Burnaby and Buntzen Lake, near Port Moody, also offer great canoeing and kayaking.
