Reply To: New to kayaking and packrafting

I would say that the big three (Ecomarine -Granville Isl & Jericho, Deep Cove and MEC) are the first on most people’s list, but there are countless others that are equally suitable.  Renting at MEC will require transportation to your final location though, one benefit of renting on the water.

As for packrafting, you can rent locally a Caps Bikes, the BCMC had a intro packrafting course earlier this year, the Vancouver Whitewater Club may be of help, there are several facebook whitewater groups (Fraser Valley, Whistler, Squamish) and finally the 1st Canadian Packrafting Roundup starting on the 31st in Mt Robson Park.
