False Creek Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Situated in the heart of Vancouver, False Creek is about as urban as you can get without actually being on land. As the former home of the world fair, Expo 86, and the new home of a massive Concord Pacific development, the area has undergone dramatic changes over the years, but the essential qualities that made it a kayak destination have remained: it is easy to access and extremely well protected. Top this off with fantastic city views and you have the ultimate urban escape for the beginner and advanced paddler alike.

Living in Vancouver blesses the paddler with many things. The finest boats and paddles in the world are made in our own backyard, and many of the best paddling instructors and outfitters are based here. Most importantly, we and our visitors have the ocean on our doorstep, which means we can experience the joy of paddling 365 days a year. This chapter describes just a few of the trips you can take in and around Vancouver."
