Paddling At Squamish Oceanfront

The calm mornings are perfect for a paddle on the Howe Sound. Head over to Squamish Watersport to grab a canoe, kayak or stand up paddle board and explore the Squamish Estuary, the base of Shannon falls and through the tranquil waters of the Howe Sound. You’re almost guaranteed to see wildlife while you’re out on the water, the Howe Sound is home to orcas, otters, seals and a huge variety of bird species.  The best time of the day to paddle is the early morning before the wind picks up (normally around 10am).
