Paddling

Quaaout Lodge

Explore the coast with paddleboards, canoes, kayaks, and other motor-free ways of water travel.

Paddling is the original mode of transportation on the vast fresh and salt waters of British Columbia. The dip of your paddle and the call of the wild are the only sounds to be heard as you move across the water and create an intimate experience with nature that can reveal secrets of the land many will never learn.
