About the village of Egmont:

Egmont is a small and charming waterfront community located on a Secret Bay within Sechelt Inlet. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks that rise over 2,000 meters, Egmont is truly a picturesque community. It has a full service marina, with accommodations & a restaurant / pub. While Egmont is known mainly as an ideal launchsite to get to some the Sunshine Coast 'gems': such as Chatterbox Falls in Princess Louisa Inlet, there is also a great hike here for land lovers. From the town you can hike to the Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park where you can witness these narrow rapids that race at up to 30 km/h. Several experienced kayakers go for these rapids in their boats but for those who just want to take a peak, the hike is ideal.

About the Backeddy Pub and Egmont Marina Resort:

Within Egmont is the Backeddy Pub and Egmont Marina Resort. The Backeddy pub, long a staple of the Sunshine Coast, is the perfect place to fuel up and/or wind down after an afternoon sea kayaking in the summer sunshine. Egmont Backeddy Marina Resort offers waterfront cabins for those wishing to make their Sunshine Coast kayak adventure into a weekend trip.

Lessons, Rentals and Guided Trips Available

Rising Sun has been offering kayaking lessons and guided day trips from the Backeddy Pub and Egmont Marina Resort since 1992. Lessons and trips will be held regularly on weekends and on a custom reservation basis during the week. Kayak rentals will be available daily.

Rising Sun's kayak lessons are a quick way to learn paddle strokes and basic safety techniques before taking to the water. Our guided trips are a great way to explore the beautiful waterways outside of Egmont. On our Rising Sun staff there are several knowledgeable guides who are eager to share their knowledge of kayaking, Sunshine Coast wilderness and marine life.

Our multi-day kayak trips are fantastic for in-depth explorations of the Sunshine Coast's world-renowned beauty. Those looking for a weekend can contact us about custom overnights to Hotham Sound and Nelson Island while those looking to getaway for a little longer can try an escape to Princess Louisa Inlet.
