Canoeing and Kayaking in Canada

The coastline and rivers provide exceptional kayaking and canoeing in Canada. The country’s size ensures a huge diversity of attractions. Its coast varies between sandy beaches, secret coves, fjord-like sounds and expansive forest.

Its crystal-clear rivers are the habitat of leaping salmon and foraging grizzlies. Meanwhile, the rippling coastal waves welcome orca, humpback whales, seals and a plethora of seabirds.

An unmissable destination for wildlife, wilderness and adventure lovers, kayaking and canoeing in Canada is the equivalent of a game drive on the plains of Africa. There is no better way of getting within touching distance of the country’s finest landscapes and most mesmeric species.

With almost 45,000 miles of shoreline and no less than 8,500 named rivers, there are certainly no shortage of destinations for kayaking and canoeing in Canada. However, we’d suggest Vancouver Island’s Wickaninnish Inn or Black Rock Oceanfront Resort.

Situated on the island’s remote west coast, guests have ample opportunity to take in the beauty of the vast Pacific. At ‘The Wick,’ sea kayaking is only ever a few steps from a comfy bed or the award-winning Ancient Cedars Spa. Guided kayaking sessions can take in Clayoquot Sound, or encompass several days in the backcountry.

The shores around Black Rock Oceanfront Resort are equally striking. Kayak and canoe here to take in Barkley Sound, Pacific Rim National Park, the Broken Group Islands and Deer Group Islands. Tidal pools and sand beaches provide a touch of relaxation beyond the calming ambience of the resort’s Drift Spa.

For even more adventure, check out the surfing possibilities at Wickaninnish Inn and Black Rock Oceanfront Resort.
