Victoria Sea Kayakers Meetup Pages


This group is for self propelled outdoor exploration of Vancouver Island. Sooke is 30km west of Victoria on Vancouver Island. Good sea kayaking destinations include Sooke Basin, Port Renfrew, the Deer Group, Broken Islands, Clayoquot Sound, Hesquiat Harbour, Nuchatlitz, Kyuquot, and the Gulf Islands.

There are many local hiking trails to explore including Juan De Fuca, Sooke Hills, Kludahk, Matterhorn, Tugwell Creek and the mountains around Lake Cowichan.

This group is about capable people getting out and having fun sea kayaking and hiking. The following quote about safety and adventure is relevant: "I'm all for safety, but I also believe people should have their own adventures whenever possible. It's a fine line; often rookies can't anticipate the danger they're getting into but it's a question of approach. By all means if people ask for help, be ready to give it, but if they aren't asking, please be unobtrusive, and keep your ego out of it" Frederick Reimers
