The picturesque and calm waters of Sechelt Inlet are ideal for all types of paddling sports. Several outfits rent kayaks and offer guided tours. Or you can head out for a week of paddling and camping, making use of shoreline campsites accessible only by water.
Elsewhere on the Coast, there is a wealth of opportunities for paddlers: launch into Howe Sound from Port Mellon, choose one of many spots up our 80 km of coastline along the Georgia Strait, explore the intricate coves and inlets in Pender Harbour, visit Ruby Lake or Sakinaw Lake, or run the rapids at Skookumchuk Narrows (experts only!). Knowledgeable outfits rent equipment and provide helpful information to plan your time on the water.
Alpha Adventures is your outdoor adventure store on the Sunshine Coast with 2 locations to serve you - (The Pender Harbour location is only open during the summer months when we offer kayak rentals). Our certified kayak guides are keen to share their knowledge with you during a lesson or show you the very best sights of the Sunshine Coast during a guided tour.
