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.

Scouting recommended for all drops and wood concern. three mandatory portages to note. first portage around a log jam before you enter the canyon, second one in the canyon requires a seal launch back in off a sloped rock, this portage is runnable at high water. third portage at the end of the canyon around some more logs.
