On May 14 we will take the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to have a great day on Bowen Island! With this blog post we hope to inform you more about all the activities you can do there.
Bowen Island Sea Kayaking
We are on an island, which means it is all surrounded by water and a perfect place to go kayaking. Bowen Island Sea Kayaking rents kayaks and paddleboards but also arranges kayaking tours. It is your chance to get close to nature and wildlife and if you get on a tour, the experienced tour guide will tell you everything you need to know about Bowen Island and its waters. Their popular shoreline tour will cost you $75 and will give you pleasure for three hours. Keep in mind that there is a reservation required and a two-person minimum for the tours. If you rather go explore the waters by yourself you can also rent kayaks or a stand up paddleboard (SUP). This will cost you:
- 3 hour single kayak: $45
- 4 hour single kayak: $55
- 3 hour double kayak: $70
- 4 hour double kayak: $85

Bowen Island offers lots of hiking trails to enjoy. If you get off the ferry you can check out the maps in the information kiosk on the dock to your right.
