  • Pedals and Paddles
    Located where the Caren and Richardson mountain ranges slip into the Pacific Ocean, Pedals and Paddles sits on spectacular trailheads for hiking, camping, and kayaking. When paddling through the crystal-clear inlet waters on kayaks or standup paddleboards in guided or self-guided tours, clients can gaze at the ocean floor to commune with seafaring creatures such as starfish, sea cucumbers, and—if they're lucky—dolphins and orcas. Explorers can also camp on the beaches at Piper Point, Tuwanek Beach, or Oyster Beach, where they can sleep in between swimmable waters and the towering pines of the mountains.

  • False Creek Community Centre
    The waters of False Creek reach into the city of Vancouver like an arm. For years, the passage of water was used for industrial purposes, but all that changed in 1980 when the city of Vancouver decided to develop Granville Island. One of those developments was False Creek Community Centre. Today, the centre fills False Creek with an array of recreational boaters, including kayakers, canoeists, dragon boaters, and whale surfers. Back on land, the facility boasts a pottery studio, a fitness centre, tennis courts, a water park with a large kid's area, and a talented staff of instructors who teach programs and classes for kids and adults alike.

  • Creekside Kayaks
    False Creek runs through the heart of Vancouver, creeping around skyscrapers and city parks and spilling into the English Bay. The best way to traverse this urban waterway is by kayak, rented from nearby Creekside Kayaks. Its single and tandem kayaks and paddleboards give city dwellers a chance to see the skyline from a new angle as they paddle their way through the gentle waters. As the buildings light up at night, the surface reflects glowing pinpricks, creating a romantic atmosphere for evening boating. For first-time boaters, lessons impart basic skills, rescue techniques, and water safety to small groups.
