On clear, warm, bright sunny days Vancouver’s waterways come alive. Truth to be told, if it floats, Vancouverites will paddle it! I have said it before, and I will repeat it, exploring the city by water is a uniquely Vancouver experience and one that should not be missed. Imagine paddling under the Burrard Street Bridge or viewing Science World and Yaletown from the ocean. From the scenic fjord of Indian Arm to the calm, protected waters of the Nicomekl River there are countless local paddling routes available for those who dare to don a life jacket. Views of sandy beaches, rocky shores, towering skyscrapers, quirky float homes and ocean-going tankers are abundant, all part of a quick escape from life on land.
