    My name is Sean Salo. I am going on the Broken Islands trip this May. My dad Bob and I have been looking for rental kayaks for me, with little luck. I am looking for 17 feet or longer sea kayak.

    Western Canoe Kayak in Abbotsford says they are holding all their rental kayaks for a race that weekend. Deep Cove Kayak says they typically rent for shorter durations, and a >1 week rental will be very expensive. MEC says they are buying new rental boats but can’t confirm they will be ready to rent by that time.

    If anyone knows of somewhere else I could rent for a week or more, or even an opportunity to buy a second hand kayak, please let me know. I would like to have this kayak procurement situation sorted long before out trip in just over a month.

    Reply to this thread, or email me at Thanks for the help!

    Thank you everybody for your help! I was able to find someone willing to rent me their boat. It sure is nice to be part of a community where everyone is so helpful to each other.

    My partner is going with friends to the Broken Islands in August and they are renting kayaks from Sechart Kayak rental/Lady Rose Marine Services

    Give David Middleton a call at 604 2400503. He has two great boats of 16.5 feet that carry a ton and are good in big water. He lives in North Vancouver and is very accommodating

    Go well,

    Hi Sean

    Have you tried Ecomarine on Granville Island. I know someone rented a kayak for 10 days from them a couple of years ago.

    There is also the Locarno kayak share. Think they also do longer rentals.

    Good luck.

    Older fiberglass boats in good shape regularly come up on Craigslist.

    Hi Sean,

    Have you tried Ocean River Kayaks in Victoria or Coastal Expression in Nanaimo? It looks like they both have multi-day rentals. Good luck.
