Explore the beauty of bc 

There are lots of great ways to explore the Squamish surroundings by canoe. For a mellow experience, a morning estuary paddle or a calm float on a nearby lake is just what the doctor ordered. For those with more paddling experience, an exhilarating downstream river float or long-distance downwinder from Porteau Cove to Squamish will get your heart racing. Wherever you choose to go, you will be sure to see nature in its full beauty and perhaps even catch a glimpse of some local wildlife from a comfortable view on the water.
