Trips

Kayak tripping is one of the reasons that many people join the kayak fleet.  At the beginning of each season we plan the trip calendar and tailor the destinations and level of difficulty to involve as many members as possible. 

Once a trip is on the calendar, we need a volunteer to lead it and someone to organize it.  Once they are in place, we will open trip for participants to apply - trips are normally limited to six people, but we have a wait list for each.  The organization process will include a planning meeting and a paddle together.

Our trip calendar is below; see the Trip Resources page for things to help leaders, organizers and participants (you need to be signed in as a member to view).

    This day trip will go the Lighthouse Park.

    Estimate distance is around 15 miles(25km) return.

    Members who like to join must have done some longer distance paddle(Wreck Beach, Stanley Park, the Bell) in this season already and you should able to make a average speed 2-3nm(4-6km) per hour. 

    You should as well be comfortable  with long crossings and bigger waves if the wind picks up at the crossing.

    Crossing will take around 1,5-2,5 hours, depending on conditions.

    This is not a beginner/novice trip !

    Final decision will made on that morning.

    Please don’t make plans for the early evenings as 6pm could be realistic.

    What to bring:

    Wet suite, food for lunch, snack(for on the water), sun cream, hat, lots of drinking water.
