COVID-19 OPERATIONAL PROTOCOLS
We are very excited to operating for the 2021 season with new safety and health measures in place. Please feel free to call us if you have any detailed questions about our operating procedures.
As of Friday April 23, new Provincial guidelines have been set with travel restrictions in place. Currently, Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health are considered 1 region, wherein people can travel, but stay within. We recommend our customers also check any Provincial guidelines when deciding to travel. We run an outdoor business, enabling us to operate through safe practices and are open daily.
The primary steps we are taking to keep our customers, staff and the public safe are described below:
Reservations in advance are required – please book online or over the phone prior to arriving in Deep Cove. We suggest booking at least 1-2 days in advance
Limited capacity – We have reduced our operating capacity to ensure that we limit crowds and gathering at our location
Staggered Bookings and Arrivals – We are staggering the arrival of guests to reduce line ups and congestion for our customers and staff
Limited Group Size – We have a maximum group size of 4 people within a single reservation.
Sanitization of all shared equipment – Using cleaning methods approved by Vancouver Coastal Health, we are sanitizing all shared equipment between uses
Prepayment and waivers – We are requiring that all guests pay in full in advance and sign waivers online prior to arrival to reduce the duration of check-in and customer interaction.
Traffic flow management – With the support of the District of North Vancouver, we have implemented one way traffic flow along the sea wall in front of our office to reduce the likelihood of congestion and contact with customers, public and staff.
Paddle Sport Rentals, Lessons, & Tours
Deep Cove Kayak Centre is Vancouver’s premier paddling location for kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and surfskiing. With one of the largest fleets in Canada, we offer rentals of high quality single and double ocean kayaks, stand up paddleboards (SUP) and surfskis that will suit a wide range of paddling styles and experience levels.
We also offer a multitude of lessons and tours for kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and surfskiing which cater for beginners through to experienced paddlers. We are open from April to October weather depending, but usually 7 days a week from May through September. If you want to save time on check in, our regular waiver forms can be found by clicking here, and our parental consent forms here.
We are located only 20 minutes from downtown Vancouver by car, and are easily accessible by public transport. Deep Cove is a beautiful place to spend a day, a week or a lifetime, exploring the stunning scenery from the water and from on land.
We will give you an unforgettable experience no matter what your experience level is but don’t take our word for it – come and check it out yourself!
