Surfskiing is an exciting, fitness-oriented paddle sport where the boats are lightweight, high-tech, and give great glide and yet are very stable. They are paddled just like a kayak, but are much lighter so go further, faster so why not paddle in a vessel that will let you see the most amount of beautiful Deep Cove and Indian Arm in your rental time.

All surfski rentals include paddle, PFD, whistle and leg leash.

We have a diverse range of surfskis suitable for beginners to advanced paddlers so we will have something for everyone. If you are looking to hone your technique, take one of our lessons!

If you either want to go out for a short paddle, or a long training run, our knowledgeable staff can recommend the best way to head out of Deep Cove and where to go.

We highly recommend that you reserve ahead to ensure that we have the right surfski available for you. Call us on 604-929-2268 to Reserve & Inquire.

Each year, all season pass holders will need to demonstrate their capsize recovery skills. Deep Cove Kayak values the safety of all of our paddlers and we feel practicing the critical skill of capsize recovery is needed each season if not more often. You can demonstrate a capsize recovery for us by the following means:

Deep Cove Kayak Centre’s four Sea Kayaking Basics lessons. Including Introduction to Ocean Kayaking, Introduction to Capsize Recovery, Bracing and Edging and Solo Paddling. This four pack lesson series can be purchased for $280 plus tax (note: with a season pass you receive a 10% discount on all lessons and tours).
Spend one hour refreshing you capsize recovery skills in Deep Cove alongside one of our instructors with our Recovery Refresher course. Recommended for paddlers who have taken a capsize course before, but would like to refresh their technique. $25 Saturdays.

Practice on your own and demo it to us. Contact Deep Cove Kayak Centre to set up a time to demonstrate your capsize recovery skills in front of the paddling centre. This can be done in 10 minutes and is recommended only for those paddlers competent in their solo recovery skills. Please note that the employee witnessing your refresher must be a Manager, Supervisor or Instructor.
