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 is a great trip for first-timers if you can get away during the week.  Stunning scenery, mirror-calm waters and no ferries to get there!

    We will launch at Deep Cove early on Thursday morning and paddle the length of Indian Arm, likely camping at Granite Falls.

    On Friday morning launch early to make as much distance as we can before the thermal winds start blowing.

    Please register ASAP.  We will meet at JSCA in the members' lounge on Wednesday evening to confirm logistics..

    Pre-requisites: Checked out for kayak fleet, moderate fitness,  comfortable in a moderate wind (10-15kn).  While there is little current and no swell, it is at least 15 km to reach the campsite, and there is a risk of headwinds on the return trip.
