Paddling on Indian Arm
on the map below to view the details
for each location.
Departing from Deep Cove, there are several directions you can take to have a great daytrip. The South Arm is dotted with eight tiny islands that make for great points of interest during a half or full day paddle. You can get out and stretch your legs at Belcarra Beach, Jug Island Beach, Strathcona Bay and Twin Islands. Paddlers often encounter harbour seals, eagles, flocks of seabirds and other happy kayakers.
Once you pass Best Point, the homes begin to space out, the shoreline gets steeper and you begin to feel that you are truly leaving civilization behind. Rocky cliffs are covered in mustard yellow lichen and the
snow covered peaks of the distant mountains beckon. To travel past Best Point requires commitment to a long day or overnight trip, but the rewards are worth it.
