Experience Kayaking on Vancouver’s North Shore!
North Shore Kayaks is based out of both North Vancouver (near Deep Cove) and up on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. North Shore Kayaks is your best choice for renting kayaks or taking certified kayak lessons in open water. With years of experience and our close proximity to the best kayaking areas in the lower mainland we will do our best to ensure you have a memorable experience paddling the beautiful waters of British Columbia on the North shore, Deep Cove, Horseshoe Bay, Hotham Sound, English Bay, and the Sunshine Coast in Porpoise Bay Provincial Park with family and friends.
Now you can rent Paddle Boards in and around the North Shore of Vancouver. This is the latest twist in surfing that lets you take a scenic trip around the bay looking into the marine life below, or can be a great mix up when you get tired of the sitting position while Kayaking.
For those that are not familiar with the sport, stand-up paddling uses a longboard and propelling yourself with an extra long canoe paddle. Stand-up-paddling is a great way to improve your core strength and balance, making it an ideal cross-training activity for martial arts, hockey players, track and field athletes, or anyone that wants to build arm and mid section muscles! From a stand-up position the surfer benefits from an elevated stance, as when standing on a pier, you can see deeper into the water. Try it today!
