I think it was John Grace who once said "It's all just training for British Columbia". He was referring to the super challenging creeking and multi day wilderness whitewater trips that are located all over this mountainous province. There is a lifetime worth of easy and intermediate paddling too. Whether it is multi day ocean trips, winter whitewater paddling on Vancouver Island, surfing tidal rapids, creeking in the interior, remote trips up north BC offers it all and then some.

Canoe Trips or Routes

North Vancouver

Lower Seymour
Seymour River - The Lower Seymour offers some great class II water offering a fantastic training ground for beginner paddlers. If you are new to leading and know the river well the run supplies a great opportunity to take beginners down a safe local run.
Strathcona Lookout Park
Deep Cove - Amazing experience paddling Deep Cove. Small jelly fish surround your craft and you'll spot the odd seal popping it's head out of the water. Many other paddlers but so much room to explore. The waves can knock you off your board but makes for even more fun!
