Welcome to Deep Cove Kayak Centre! Our waterfront facility has been operating in Deep Cove for over 40 years, located in the heart of Deep Cove and only a half hour from downtown Vancouver.

Deep Cove Kayak Centre specializes in providing people with a positive paddling experience and have always placed an emphasis on safety and skill development. We offer hourly, daily, or weekly rentals, pre-scheduled lesson programs and tours, and weekly fun races. We also love hosting large corporate groups, school groups, community centre and ESL groups.

Indian Arm is a paddler’s paradise! This 18 km fjord/inlet has calm waters and stunning scenery combining to provide a spectacular wilderness escape just minutes from the city. Deep Cove is a charming waterfront community with a great selection of shops, restaurants, pubs, beautiful waterfront parks, and hiking trails.

Our rental house operates full time from April – October, with limited operations during the rest of the year. We have one of the largest rental fleets in Canada with a diverse range of boats for novice, intermediate and advanced paddlers. Our fleet consists of single and double kayaks, stand up paddle boards, surfskis, and dragon boats.

Please be aware that parking in the Cove is extremely limited. Please make all efforts to car pool or take public transport, both for the environment’s sake, and for everyone’s sanity. If that is not a possible option for you, make sure to arrive at least 45 minutes early for your reservation to find parking, fill out our waiver forms, make payment and receive a safety talk before your reservation time starts. The map below shows where you can find parking in Deep Cove.

First Nations:

We respectfully acknowledge that we live, play and connect on the unceded territory and traditional waters of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. 

Since 2007 Deep Cove Kayak has proudly collaborated and built a strong business relationship with Takaya Tours, the Lower Mainland’s premier First Nation owned eco-tourism venture. We continue to work with Takaya Tours and the Tsleil-Waututh Nation as we manage the rental operation of the Cates Park Paddling Centre located at Whey-Ah-Wichen.
