Salt Spring Island Kayak and Cuisine
Sea kayaking might sound difficult and possibly physically challenging, but it’s not. With the right instruction, anyone with a reasonable level of fitness and mobility can learn this beautiful and gentle form of self propelled travel.
Salt Spring Island is a wonderful place to learn sea kayaking. This small island is alive with artists, fine food, wineries, a quaint harbour and colourful local people. Instruction course will prepare you to begin sea kayaking on your own or to join guided multi-day excursions with confidence.
These programs are specifically designed for beginners or people wanting to refresh skills they’ve let lapse. They take place in both fresh and salt water so that learners get comfortable with waves. Instructors are all certified.
