British Columbia Kayaking

Beautiful British Columbia is hard to describe in a few short words. After all, this Canadian province has it all: mountains, ocean, islands, lakes, and everything in between. With limitless nature and easy access to the Pacific Ocean, water sport junkies love exploring British Columbia. A British Columbia kayaking trip will take you into the province’s wild heart, all while introducing you to the history and culture of the place.

The Kootenay River is a great place to try your hand at kayaking if you’re just a beginner. This gentle, rolling river is ideal for anyone who wants a calm, restful kayaking experience in the middle of nature, surrounded by deep valleys and tall mountains. Gently glide along as your guide directs your route, and soak up the birdsong and peace all around.

If you want to try out some whitewater rapids, Bull River is the place to be. You can even jump in your single kayak with a group of friends, and make your way downstream! Another ideal place for beginning kayakers to try some whitewater is on St. Mary’s River. The rapids on both rivers are mild and easy, and an experienced guide will be sure to guarantee your safety throughout the tour.

More experienced paddlers will love to British Columbia kayaking on the Elk River in the East Kootenays. You can choose from upper, middle, or lower sections with a range of features including a 40-foot “Leap of Faith” to Boulder Gardens. There are also slides, and even a 15-foot waterfall. Elk River is definitely for the adventurous paddler!

British Columbia Kayaking Continued...

If you’re interested in learning about British Columbia’s First Nations history, take a tour of the calm waters of Indian Arm by kayak. Your guide will allow you to experience the culture, tradition, and history of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. You’ll explore the ancestral ground of Whey-ah-Wichen Park, and learn the old legends of the area.  You can also take a kayaking trip up the Indian River to see the salmon spawning. A native guide will lead you there, so stay on the look out for seals, river otters, eagles, and other birds.

Ready for a truly spectacular experience? Depending on the season, you can kayak in British Columbia with orca whales. From Squamish, explore the glacier-carved passage of Johnston Strait via your own personal boat, and you may just cross paths with some friendly killer whales. Your guide will teach you how to use a hydrophone to listen to the clicks and whistles of the whales communicating.
