Here at Deep Cove Kayak, we have been delivering quality school group tours and lessons in Say Nuth Khaw Yum (Indian Arm Park) for over 40 years.

We are a Social Purpose company, and our purpose is to INSPIRE DEEPER CONNECTIONS TO THE OUTDOORS AND ONE ANOTHER. All of our paddling programs focus on building relationships within your group as you paddle and explore together all while learning about and respecting the environment that you are paddling in.

We offer tours and lessons at discounted prices to School groups and youth groups. The calm waters of Deep Cove provide a comfortable, safe environment for young, first-time paddlers. We work with a variety of ages but find that we have the most success with grades 3-4 all the way through to grade 12.

Our School & Youth Group Bookings are a great option for:

  • End-of-year field trips
  • Geography classes
  • PE classes
  • Outdoor ed classes
  • Youth Clubs
  • Summer Camp Activities
  • International Student Groups

Learning a new skill with your classmates is a great way to break down
barriers within your class, build water confidence and play some fun games while experiencing the beauty of Say Nuth Khaw Yum (Indian Arm Park)!

Your instructors will meet your class and give your group a safety talk and introduction to your chosen paddling discipline (SUP or kayak).

When you are on the water your instructors will take your group through the basics of paddling and maneuvering your craft. All of these skills will be taught in a safe environment with plenty of activities and games to consolidate the class’ learning. Your students will be pro in no time!

Once the activity is completed, the instructors will safely land everyone at the beach and will give your class a chance to reflect on their experiences from the lesson.

This course serves as the starting point in the Paddle Canada progression scheme and provides structured learning for fundamental life-long kayaking skills.

Students will each paddle their own single kayak. Our Paddle Canada certified instructors will teach these students about the kayaks, basic strokes, and options to move the kayaks in different directions. Students will also learn to capsize and exit their kayak, as well as how to get back in with the help of a partner. This will be done in a safe and supported environment.

The calm, sheltered waters of Say Nuth Khaw Yum (Indian Arm Park) make for a great first-time overnight kayak expedition.

Paddle 16 km around Islands, past waterfalls, and historic power stations until you reach your final destination, the iconic Granite Falls! The campsite is remote enough to completely disconnect from the day-to-day hustle and bustle, but still, only a 40 minute motor boat ride away from Deep Cove making it a great spot for beginner campers.
