    Hi there, I'm looking for paddling buddies in the Victoria area, for day trips and eventually multi-day trips. I'm not having much luck convincing my non-paddling friends to take up kayaking on a regular basis, so thought I'd reach out here!

    Cheers,
    Christina

    What about joining SISKA [https://www.siska.ca/] - that club is of the greater victoria area . . . and there's bound to be at least opportunities that present themselves if you wish.
    And looking at their website, the third 'line' says: "do you want to meet other kayakers?". . . . sound perfect?

    Christina-
    SISKA is an excellent club with lots of active paddlers at all levels of expertise. There are 200-300 members and lots of activities - check the website and calendar.
    I like it, and all my paddling 'buddies' are members.
    Please join us!
    :)
    I think there are a couple of 'Meetup' groups for paddling in Victoria as well, but I haven't investigated them much.
