Tour groups of up to six people file into a 25-foot canoe designed to replicate the authentic vessels of the indigenous Coast Salish people before exploring the scenic waters of the Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm.

Takaya Tours takes patrons gliding across the waters of the Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm on trips accentuated by the cultural heritage of the Coast Salish Nation, the indigenous inhabitants of the area. Guests plumb the open-water majesty astride a replica of a 25-foot Salish canoe or in a single or tandem kayak as the guide imparts nuggets of cultural lore and sings ancient songs that echo off of the rock faces surrounding the placid waters. Guides expose tourists to the area’s native flora and fauna and the sites of original Coast Salish villages while implicitly affirming the principles of buoyancy. Takaya Tours also rents out kayaks to let individuals or duos explore the scenic waterways and start splash fights with pelicans on their own time.
