Canoe Excursions

Cultural Canoe Tours

Learn about Coast Salish Indigenous History and Culture while touring False Creek

The rich heritage of canoe culture traces back to ancient times, immemorial and timeless. Historical records reveal that canoe races date as far back as the 1880s, illustrating the enduring legacy of this tradition. Legend has it that our revered ancestors, during the Great Flood, skillfully secured their canoes atop Nch’kay’ (Mount Garibaldi), the towering peak within our ancestral territory, showcasing their remarkable prowess and connection to the natural world.

Canoeing serves as a revered cultural tradition and offers profound solace for the spirit. It serves as a poignant reminder for our People to embrace our heritage and pay homage to our forebears. Moreover, it serves as a unifying force, bringing communities together and imparting invaluable, and at times life-saving, teachings. The lessons acquired on the water foster resilient minds and compassionate hearts, translating seamlessly into life on solid ground.

Each session is up to 90 minutes long and is led by an Indigenous guide/Skipper.
