Stay, Dine, Explore | Powell River, British Columbia


At Powell River Sea Kayak, we're passionate about the beautiful area in which we live ... and it's not just about the paddling!

Many people that choose to kayak with us, or are in the planning stages of their trip or vacation, are also interested in opportunities for further exploration and immersion into the places that they choose to visit, whether this be through the food that they eat, the hotels in which they stay, or the adventures that they take and make along the way.

Powell River is an emerging outdoor destination, and many of our guests are pleasantly surprised about the sheer volume of outdoor activities on offer beyond the world-class paddling. We also harbour a very healthy food and restaurant scene, have thriving artistic and cultural communities, our Townsite district is designated as a National Historic District of Canada, and there is a wide range of accommodation options to suit every budget and taste.

Powell River is a destination that is just starting to bloom. For so long considered a fine stop or quick pitstop on a more encompassing visit to coastal BC, more and more visitors are realising that the Upper Sunshine Coast, with its unique cultural and artistic identity and palpable sense of adventure, is a world-class destination in and of itself - without the crowds! Throw in a healthy small-town community vibe and some of the best sunsets in the world ... and why would you look to stay anywhere else?!
