Go with the flow and discover the beauty of Squamish through one of the many local waterways.

Howe Sound’s distinctive turquoise hue is caused by glacier-fed water pouring into the fjord.  The confluence of multiple rivers in and around Squamish and the abundance of lakes nourish the forests and attract wildlife to the shores.  

For paddlers of all forms, there are plenty of self-guided trip options available as well as assorted tour and rental companies to equip you with everything you need to comfortably explore our shores.
