You’ll be surprised you are even in the Lower Mainland. Paddling out of the Coquitlam River, you enter the Fraser River heading toward the sea. You paddle under the massive Port Mann Bridge, with Coquitlam on the west side and Surrey to the east. While this stretch of river is heavily used by industry, you will also see the beauty and diversity of the Fraser. Watch for seals and, if you’re lucky, you may even see a sturgeon surface! After paddling by Sapperton Landing in New Westminster and under the Pattullo Bridge, you land beside the M.V. Native Paddlewheeler at the Westminster Quay.
This is a short morning paddle. No canoe experience is necessary but you should feel comfortable in a large canoe on a big river. You will paddle at a comfortable pace for the duration of the trip – but don’t worry, even on this short trip there will be breaks! You will be paddling with up to 13 others and a professional guide in a sturdy 34’ Voyageur canoe.
