Hornby Island is one of the most spectacular and protected northern Gulf Islands on the west coast of Canada. Being situated in the calm protected waters of the Georgia Strait between the mainland and Vancouver Island, Hornby is an excellent place to experience ocean kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and skim boarding.
Depending on the time of year, you will see eagles, seals, sea lions, whales, interesting intertidal life, and diverse bird species. Our customers return from paddling relaxed, refreshed, and rejuvenated. Hornby Ocean Kayaks is a small family run business and Jade and her team are happy to share their knowledge of Hornby Island. They are open year-round and offer rentals for kayaks, stand up paddle boards and skim boards. They have gear in all sizes, including babies/children children/youth kayaks and various sizes of wetsuits. They even have canine PFD’s for your pets. They paddle year-round and we encourage you to check them out and get out on the water.
Hornby Ocean Kayaks is primarily based out of Big Tribune Bay at the end of the Shields Rd. beach access, strait down from the Co-op and past the Big Tribune Campground. They also self launch from Ford’s Cove Marina (booking required) and can also deliver kayaks/SUP’s to the beach of your choice for a small delivery fee.
