Do you have a kayak? What kind?

No, ... not yet anyway!

Where have you paddled on the west coast?

All day trips from various points around town: Smuggler's Cove, Cadboro Bay, Willows Beach, the Gorge, Portage Inlet, Esquimalt Lagoon, Inner and Outer Harbour, Sidney to Portland Island, Brentwood Bay, Tsehum Harbour, Cowichan Bay to Genoa Bay.

Are you interested in organizing trips?

No, I don't think I have the experience for that at this point.

What kind of trips would you like to do with the meet up?

Any and all, really! A couple of hours, half day, full day, overnighters around the Islands...

What do you enjoy most about sea kayaking?

Being immersed (no pun intended and hopefully never fully immersed in the ocean!) in the seascape and landscape of the West Coast, seeing it all from the point of view of the water and being able to go into inlets, bays, along shorelines etc., that aren't otherwise accessible to me. Love to be part of the scene with seals, and all other ocean, land and airborne wildlife, flora and fauna. It takes my breath away and breathes positive wonder, joy and appreciation through me to be enjoying and interacting with the natural environment... I also enjoy seeing new places where we might stop for lunch or a walk or even to camp. I also really enjoy experiencing all of the above and participating in such a lovely sport with others who feel similarly! What a great way to get outdoors, exercise, and get away from the regular stressors in life!


A fairly beginner paddler with hopes of making kayaking part of my lifestyle. Have my Paddle Canada Level 1 certificate. Spending time on the water, paddling, enjoying and being part of the beauty and life of the west to my soul!

What Tanya is saying about this Meetup Group

Friendly, fun and helpful. Great way to get out on the water with a great group of paddlers!
