We had a great winter kayaking tour with our guide Spencer. He was very knowledgeable of the area's history, had interesting facts and was a lot of fun. He also gave tips on kayaking and made us feel very safe in the water. We covered 5-8km of coast even though we were kayaking at a leisurely pace. The views were... More

Spent a fabulous afternoon guided by Spencer exploring coves and islands in beautiful October sunshine. Spotted harbour seals, crabs, star fish and schools of fish. Highly recommended if you get the chance, whether you are a beginner or expert.

I cannot believe that this are is in N. Vancouver!! It feels like another place, far removed from the city. Took a "3 hour tour" of Indian Arm with Spencer (guide). The weather was unreal warm (22) for October so the tour was very comfortable. I loved all the history that was pointed out along the journey. Definitely going back!!!

Thanks so much for your great review! We love when people experience the beauty of Indian Arm for the first time - it really is crazy how close are to Vancouver but feel like a million miles away. We will pass your comments onto Spencer and his manager too. Hope to see you again soon. More

Very supportive staff made this solo adventure well worth the 45 minute bus ride from Canada Place. Verification of ability to right a kayak prior to going solo was very important to them and to me. Spent 4 hours paddling the bay and went across to the island with purple and lavender clam shells. Enjoyed the ocean kayak with a... More

My wife and I rented a kayak for three hours from Deep Cove Canoe and Kayak in late June. I was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We reserved a two-person kayak the day before to ensure they would have one. The staff was very helpful in providing operating instructions and in suggesting different routes. We ended up paddling to Jug Island... More
