It's no surprise that water activities are a major draw for Sunshine Coast visitors.

The Sunshine Coast is bounded by the Strait of Georgia to the west and Howe Sound to the south, with countless bays and inlets, and also has gorgeous lakes, rivers, creeks, and streams. There's virtually no end to the water activities visitors can enjoy on the Sunshine Coast: kayaking, canoeing, fishing, diving, boating, water taxiing, and more.

Kayaking and Canoeing

Directly north of Sechelt, go kayaking or canoeing on 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 a swim, including Halfway Beach, Piper Point, and Tzoonie Narrows. The Skookumchuck Narrows offer a dynamic challenge for experienced whitewater kayakers, located up Highway 101 near the village of Egmont. Equipment sales and rentals, lesson, and guided tours are available from several operators in Sechelt and Gibsons.
