The place is very busy, so book your kayaks a day in advance by calling. Once you got your reservation, it is very easy. We had two double kayaks as a family and we paddled leisurely for two hours around the nearby island. If we do it again when the children are older - for sure paddle boarding as well... More

Easily accessible by bus inabout an hour. Loved the Quarry Rock Hike which takes between 1.5 to 2 hours round trip, depending on your fitness level. It was a rather hot day but the trail is mostly shady under the trees with many stairs. Great for a picknick at the top with gorgeous views over Deep Cove. The hike is... More

I think we're reviewing Deep Cove in general here ---- First we had a very nice lunch at Arms Reach Bistro in town overlooking the lake. Then we did the hike to Quarry Rock -- moderately strenuous. Some sections have staircases. Pretty consistent uphill for most of it. Great views at the top. Our (US) dog is used to be... More

If you want to kayak, paddle board or hike, this is the place to be. Only 10 minutes from the Iron Workers bridge (#1 hwy), yet feels like you're in the country. Ocean an Mountain playground...and right in the heart of Mountain Biking famous "North Shore".

Deep Cove has a little something for everyone. There is a row of quaint little restaurants for the foodies; kayaking, paddle-boarding and swimming for water sport junkies ( or even beginners!). For visitors that prefer to just chill, you can just spread out a picnic blanket, sit back and marvel at the great scenery. I have just started to dabble... More

We walked along the roadway looking at all the lovely homes either close to the beach or up on the hill. Absolutely beautiful! Even though it was an overcast day, kids were in the water and it was lovely and warm. We had lunch at one of the many restaurants on the main road. Nice way to spend an afternoon.

A wonderful scenic stop - the view in the Cove over looking the Inlet are stunning! Worth a visit - lovely little shops and places to eat. Swimming, sailing, kayaking are all safe or just sit and people watch.

While not quite the end of the road, if you are visiting the north shore, Deep Cove is the farthest east you can go. A scenic little village centered around a beautiful cove, Deep Cove is a favourite for couples, kayakers, boaters and anyone looking to sit by the water, but still be within 5 minutes of good food and...

Besides shoppes and restaurants, this is a very scenic park. When we visited, there was an outdoor concert.

Very popular, so plan ahead to find parking. Plentiful kayak rentals, plus cute little shops for eating/drinking/shopping just above cove to enjoy.
