Deep Cove & Indian Arm Kayaking

A Quick Escape

On this trip on the North Shore, you will only be paddling a short 15-minute drive away from downtown Vancouver but once you are on the water; you will feel that you have entered another dimension. This fjord, deep in Burrard Inlet, is a fantastic, sheltered paddling area with tranquil waters, a variety of beaches, whitewashed cliffs, islands and marine parks. The entire fjord runs 21 kilometers long and makes a great day paddle for kayakers of all ability levels.

The Deep Cove launch site is arguably the best launch site on the Lower Mainland. It is simple to access from metro Vancouver and is a quick escape into the B.C. wilderness. Within the community of Deep Cove itself, there are plenty of hiking trails, parks, shops, restaurants and pubs to explore. Whether you are from Vancouver or just visiting on holiday, this trip is a nice departure from the hustle of downtown. Our day trips out of Deep Cove can last 4 or 8 hours and include a picnic. Deep Cove is also a highly recommended location for a night tour.

ADDED BONUS: An extra ‘treat’ on our paddles up Indian Arm is that North Shore Kayaks has exclusive access to 8 acres of shoreline property just past Brighton Beach. North Shore Kayaks and family owns this property and included in your day trip options will be a picnic stop. The property has its own waterfalls and creeks creating a mini-estuary with a sandy beach that receives direct sun throughout the day. The property has basic amenities, a cabin and dock and is the perfect destination for a half-day trip!
