Nearly all my BC paddling has been based from Vancouver Island e.g to access Quadra, Cortes, the Broken Group, the Broughtons. I am now thinking of organizing a few folks to kayak in the Pender Harbour vicinity. However, I am guessing it might prove too crowded. What do you other kayakers familiar with that area think? As an example, we did a trip in the lower Gulf Islands south of Saltspring and I found that more crowded than I would prefer.
