Forty-six kilometres of beautiful ocean paddling. Howe’s that sound?

Extending from Squamish to the Strait of Georgia, Howe Sound offers saltwater paddling that’s as easy to access as it is beautiful to behold. First Nations people have been paddling the waters here since time immemorial, but it was Captain Vancouver who named it for British Admiral Richard Howe when he entered the Sound in 1792. Today it’s a favourite destination of sea kayakers who want to explore the various islands here, as well as stand up paddleboarders looking for an afternoon workout that includes some stunning scenery.
