North Vancouver, British Columbia

Kayak Deep Cove

Originally added by Ian Tyley

Awesome views from a kayak. Abundant seals and fish jumping out of the water. Fun outdoor activity with friends. Awesome sunset to enjoy with friends. Good exercise.

Only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver, Deep Cove is a great place to paddle in tranquil ocean waters. You can rent ocean kayaks, canoes and stand-up paddle boards from Deep Cove Kayak.

The bay in front of the community is one of the few in Indian Arm that has both a sheltering shape and the shallow bottom required for overnight anchorage of pleasure vessels.

Deep Cove sightseeing

I didn’t kayak in Deep Cove , only visiting for short time. The village is very charming with beautiful park and nice access to the water. Good break from crazy busy Vancouver. Recommend for a family day.

Had a lot of fun!

This is a great spot to come if anyone in your group is new to kayaking and is still fun even if you are not. There is a good chance you will "sea" some wildlife, we saw some seals while we were paddling. Deep Cove Kayak has lots of information available to plan out a nice adventure, they have created a lot of great routes depending on the amount of time you have. If you can, go as doubles and you'll be able to cut down on your costs.

Great even for beginners

We went a a few years back and rented a kayak right on the water then headed out. I would recommend spending a few hours out there - we only rented for an hour and had to turn back before we wanted to! We hugged the side of the cove to the left, taking a look some of the extremely nice houses that are along the water there, but further along you can work yourself into more forested areas. Afterwards, spend some time in Deep Cove while you're out there as well - they have some great spots for food (and desert - try out Honey's Doughnuts they're delicious!).
