This part of the southern Gulf Islands offers the most opportunities for small-channel paddling but with swift currents in some passages that are inappropriate for the inexperienced. There are many route variations, especially for those who carry kayaks aboard the BC ferry and can use different island stops to begin and end their paddling trip.
