Description:

Hi everyone,

I'd like to organise a three or four day kayaking trip on the Sunshine Coast. The plan is to start and end in Sechelt and loop through Georgia Strait, Agamemnon Channel and Sechelt Inlet.

If you sign up for this trip, you should be a reasonably experienced kayaker. You should also know how to self rescue or at least be willing to learn (a week or two before the trip we will practice in Burrard Inlet). Given that this is a reasonably ambitious trip, only people who are reasonably strong kayakers will be able to come.

More details to come. I tried to organise this trip over Thanksgiving last year, so please see that trip description if you want to see the kind of details that I'll eventually write here:

As described in the trip description of my last trip, a big obstacle is crossing Skookumchuck Narrows; it is only to safe to cross Skookumchuck Narrows at slack tide.

It costs about $200 to rent a single kayak for three days, about $240 to rent a single kayak for four days, about $270 to rent a double kayak for three days and about $330 to rent a double kayak for four days from Halfmoon Sea Kayaks in Sechelt. But, Cam, the owner of Halfmoon Sea Kayaks, usually gives VOCers a 20% discount.

Please sign up if you're interested!
