Hi everyone, I recently re-located from Quebec to New Westminster BC, Me and my wife where boating a lot on the St-Lawrence in Quebec where i was also a whale watching Zodiac captain. The St-Lawrence was too dangerous for us to ever try kayaks(although some people do kayak on it). So since we moved here and the coast is so wonderful we are looking forward to start finnaly learning kayaking. we have rented Kayaks a few times at Engligh Bay and Deep Cove and really enjoyed it. Next weekend we are doing the Paddle Canada Level 1 Skills so at least we have some basic skills. Our goal is eventualy to paddle in Indian arm, Howe Sound and some lakes around greater Vancouver. -I would like to know what would be some great one day or 2-3 dasy overnight trips around Vancouver?(lakes and also saltwater)? -Also any recommendations for a Kayak around 1500-1700$?(lenght?,model?) i am 5,10" 190 lbs and my wife is 5,7" 130 lbs ? I am sure the answer is there some where in the Forum but there is so many post there that i thought i ask again. Merci everyone!!!
