Had an awesome tour with Spencer Jones. He is very knowledgeable of the history and made our visit even more interesting. Thanks for providing excellent donuts for our break.

This is a license to print money. A monopoly over kayak and sup-board rentals in a busy and quaint harbour on a spectacular stretch of water. Towering hills, green-with-envy yachts and waterfront houses, beautiful stretches of water, seals, birds, omigod it's gorgeous. Yes, well, the scenery is doing its bit, but the rental outfit could pull up its socks. I... More

Hi there - thank you for bringing this to our attention. We pride ourselves on providing top notch equipment, but admittedly it has been our busiest season ever and we are doing our best to keep the fleet in tip top shape. However, there are no excuses for you not to have had a good experience and the kayak should... More

Deep Cove is a great place to go if you only have a couple of hours to go kayaking, since it's only 30 mins from downtown Vancouver. Beautiful area.

Deep cove is a great place to kayak,several destinations of various distances. All are scenic. The service is great, reserve your kayak ahead, it will be waiting on the beach. No loading or unloading required. Staff are very helpful and friendly.

I love to kayak and had a perfect paddle here. Deep Cove Canoe and Kayak are well organized and the staff truly want your paddle to be safe and enjoyable. If you have experience you can rent a kayak or SUP and go on our own for $35-39 for 2 hrs. However, there are lessons and tours offered to all... More

You have to visit Deep Cove if you are visiting Vancouver. Forget about Granville Island or downtown, you can swim, hike, canoe or kayak here. There is also a great gelato spot, called Gelato Express. It's definitely worth a visit and it's best to come here for the day.

This is a great place to figure out if you want to buy that Paddle-board. The staff are young and friendly and the place is really well organized. They will keep your precious stuff (like car keys ect.) secure, and you can pile your less precious stuff (like flip-flops and extra clothing) outside in the cubby wall. There's a place... More
