The staff were helpful and friendly. We explored near some of the islannds and thought about camping there. It was great exercise and fresh air. Would recommend it to my friends.

We have rented kayaks from Takaya before. They are quite relaxed and friendly and it is beautiful up there. There was a bit of a mix up with scheduling as we had reserved two singles and ended up with a double. Getting boats back on...More

Although there was a bit of a wait to get our kayak, we had a great time exploring Indian Arm. With calm waters on a sunny day, this is one of the best excursions in the city.

We booked 2 double kayaks online and they were waiting for us when we got there, even though we were 25 min early. They gave us briefing and let us have the extra time. Super nice friendly people. Will certainly do it again.

The service was excellent. The staff had our boats ready on the beach and helped bring them from the water to shore. The kayaks were in good shape. I was very disappointed with the spray skirts, they were very old and water leaked into mine...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Can I use 2 hours groupons for 4 hr kayaking or I'll have one 2 hours groupon and pay the difference after. I would like to rent a tandem kayak for 6-8 hours, could you please give me a quote.

Hi, unfortunately, you can only use the groupon for a 2hr rental. You will have to pay the difference depending on how many extra hours you want. Please call Belcarra paddling centre 604-936-0236 to make your booking. Thanks!
