Wild and remote, yet only thirty minutes from Vancouver, Howe Sound is a paddler’s paradise. Navigating the Sea to Sky corridor from the water is a unique and invigorating way to explore the area, world famous for breathtaking ocean views, spectacular waterfalls, snow capped mountains and Squamish Nation history and culture. My recent adventure to North America’s southern most fjord began at Porteau Cove Provincial Park. There are two paved boat launches and also plenty of beach area to begin your paddle. Prior to setting off be sure to check out the Dive Area. Porteau Cove is a very busy diving centre. Two sunken ships and a series of man-made reefs attract scuba enthusiasts to these waters. I always enjoy chatting with the divers and hearing tales of the marine live thriving below the surface.
