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

I had a great time on the full day Island Explorer tour. The scenery was beautiful. Our guide, James, was knowledgeable and good fun. We went a pace which was neither too fast nor too slow. Thoroughly recommended.

Apart from an amazing location, this is a wonderful kayaking outfitter. When you first visit you instantly notice the staff; they are all professional and knowledgeable. The kayaks, canoes and SUPs are al in very good condition and well maintained. The check in is simple and relatively fast and in no time you are out on the beach. More information... More

Ollie was a lovely guide. We had a fab time and we're particularly excited by both Honeys doughnuts and seeing seals frolicking in the water
