Discover Vancouver BC Kayaking adventures

Sunshine Coast Multi-Day Kayaking Trips

Welcome to a whole new world of natural exploration of beautiful British Columbia coastlines, waterways, and most important of all... yourself! Kayaking in BC has evolved to a whole new way of life.

Princess Louisa Inlet

Waterfalls cascade down the cliffs at Princess Louisa Inlet
Paddle into the dream world of Princess Louisa Inlet. At times, the water of over 60 waterfalls cascades down massive cliffs into this tranquil narrow inlet. This is undoubtedly a world-class kayaking destination. As you paddle into the inlet, through a myriad of waterfalls, you will hear the growing roar of the inlet’s crown jewel, Chatterbox Falls.

Chatterbox Falls, at the inlet’s apex, is where glacial runoff thunders 45 meters into “the Princess.” The inlet’s water is notably warm; making this a destination that is great for swimming and those who prefer the land can enjoy the trails surrounding Chatterbox Falls.You will also have the chance to see the Sunshine Coast's Jervis Inlet on this trip. This is one of our favorite places to be! Link to learn more about the Princess Louisa Inlet.

Getting to the Egmont launch site: From the B.C. Ferry terminal in Langdale, (a short ride from Vancouver's Horseshoe Bay), you will drive north on Hwy 101. It is the last town you will hit so it's hard to miss! We realize that so many travelers do not have access to their own automobile. If getting to Egmont poses a problem, contact Rising Sun about traveling with the grew from Langdale or Vancouver.

Hotham Sound

Hotham Sound Multi-Day Trips
Spend a weekend paddling in the eerily still waters of Hotham Sound.  See one of Canada’s tallest waterfalls; paddle in front of the majestic 1,400 foot Freil Falls, snorkel in the warm waters surrounding the Harmony Islands and / or take in oyster filled beaches under the backdrop of the snow-capped peaks that monoplize the skyline to the 'true' West, and Northwest.  

This is one of our shorter multi-day trips but do not be mistaken, Hotham Sound still has the beauty of some of the further places we paddle.  Our trips here leave from Egmont and can be arranged every weekend! Learn more about paddling the warm waters of Hotham Sound!

Narrows Inlet & Tzoonie Narrows

Hotham launch

Part of Sechelt Inlet area,Narrows Inlet & Tzoonie Narrows is a great weekend of paddling from the Tuwanek area.

You can encounter stiff winds on this trip, as in other trips in this area, especially between mid morning and late afternoon. Wind and a brisk chop can be a problem for for beginners at the mouth of Salmon Inlet, and landing sites are a bit hard to find. This is one of our better multi-day trips.

Vancouver Bay

Hotham launch

Launch from Egmont and head out past the Sutton Islets and around Egmont Point. Paddle north along the shoreline. Your route will take you along the base of steep bluffs with the occasional rock outcrop and shallow bay. In spring there will be lots of streams flowing off the mountains, in summer many of them will be dry.

Try to take advantage of the tidal flow to help you on your way. Paddle in the center when going with the flow and along the edge to catch the back eddies if the tide is against you. The wide bowl of Vancouver Bay opens to the north just after you make the turn into Prince of Wales Reach.

Deserted Bay

Hotham launch

This land is exclusively Sechelt First Nations territory. This is what makes it such a precious but guarded jewel. With Rising Sun Kayak Adventures' exclusive access, we are endowed with endless supplies of fresh water, archeological history, awesome west facing beach, and a brilliant panoramic viewscape of 3 mountain ranges off in the distance.

For some trips we use it as a destination. For other trips we use it as a base camp; and for many others, we use it as a starting point to get into Princess Louisa Inelt.

Kunechin Point & Sechelt Inlet

Like an owl's perch, from which to view all that is going on, this beach and deluxe mossy bluff serve as the ideal place to see all that is going on up and down Sechelt Inlet, Salmon Inlet, and the wayward East side of the Caren Range. It is a short paddle from Tuwanek Point Provincial Park.

It is also a great base camp from which to see more of Salmon Inlet, and or Tzoonie Narrows Inlet. There is even a great hiking from here - because there is much beach around the backside of this point, to the NW.
