Without a doubt the west coast of British Columbia, and in particular, the area around southern Vancouver Island is really one of the best places for sea kayaking.
In the Victoria area we can load up our boats and be in some of the most scenic paddling locations in less than 30 minutes. Just launch your boat at Oak Bay Marina and paddle out to the east side of Discovery and Chatham Islands to see this for yourself. Or, drive a little longer and launch from Whiffen Spit and experience some of our rugged coast line.
No matter what the weather we can usually find some place to paddle year round.
The main purpose of this site is to provide interested paddlers with the information they need to plan a paddle.
The Map page generates a Goggle Map and allows you to turn on and off various groups of place marks that would be of interest to a paddler.
- Bailout spots (Just in case the weather changes)
- Debriefing locations. Where to go after the paddle for coffee or hot chocolate and a snack
- Launch sites
- Lunch stops
- Tides and Currents
- Washroom locations
