Thwaytes Landing

The rocky beach at Thwaytes Landing is a popular stopping place for kayakers, paddleboarders and canoeists.  Paddlers can currently use this beach as a day-use rest area only.  Indian Arm, due to its steep cliffs, has few places where boaters are welcome to visit above the high tide mark and which are not privately owned.  Paddlers can only stop at the entrance to the Arm or must paddle to the end, which can be a very tiring full day excursion.  Thwaytes Landing is a comfortable two-hour paddle from Deep Cove.

Thwaytes Landing is a Pacific Park following donation from The Land Conservancy. It was named after Captain Tom Thwaytes, who in 1927 with his wife Anya, a Russian princess, built the original heritage home still standing today.

You can kayak or paddleboard here on a longer journey to Granite Falls, or as a half day trip including a visit to the Power Stations on the other side of Indian Arm.
