Whether you're a lifelong local or a visitor to Vancouver for a few days, your life is not complete without a kayak outing in Deep Cove. This is the PERFECT place to enjoy some self propelled time on the water because it is so pristine and sheltered. The scenery is beautiful, the water crystal clear and the conditions cater to any skill level. New or timid kayakers can stay close to home along the shores of Deep Cove where there are no waves. More adventurous folks can venture out across Indian Arm and even take a tent and camp on one of the islands out there. Don't be surprised if a friendly seal pops up beside you to say hi.
The business itself is very well run. I learned to kayak here and they made the experience fun and easy. Later I took lessons from them and gained quite a bit of confidence thanks to my friendly, competent instructor. The rental gear is all in great shape. You can literally show up in just shorts and a t-shirt and they will outfit you with everything you need. That said, you'll enjoy the experience more if you bring a change of clothes. Trust me, if you go in the middle of summer and it gets hot, you may not be able to resist "dumping" your kayak and going for a quick swim.
One tip: If you go out into Indian Arm, the tidal current can make your return to shore a little more difficult than you bargained for. The attendant will advise you of the timing and direction of the tide. Pay attention and you'll be thankful.
