Kayak Rentals

Exploring Canada’s west coast by kayak is an extraordinarily peaceful and colourful way to see BC’s wildlife, sea life and coastal mountains.

All rentals include a short introduction. No experience is necessary for one-hour single kayak rentals or two-hour double sea kayak rentals. However, beyond these time limits, we require wet exit certification from renters to ensure your safety.

If you wish to paddle for longer, you may want to take our Capsize and Recovery Clinic or Sealegs’ Basic Sea Kayaking Course. Sit-upon kayaks can be rented without the hourly restrictions.

Sea Kayak Rentals

Our sea kayaks have great initial stability and are perfect for novice kayakers.  Two of our double kayaks can comfortably fit two adults and a tiny passenger (usually fits children ages 2 – 5)
