Paddle Description

Paddle Description

The Tod Inlet paddle is an option that takes you right up to the famous Butchart Gardens. Launching from Brentwood Bay, you have the option to make this a 2-mile, there-and-back paddle directly into Tod Inlet, or you can choose your own adventure by combining this with any combination of Daphne Inlet, a circumnavigation of Senanus Island and/or a more extensive trip around the bend to Goldstream Provincial Park. Whichever route you take, you're highly likely to see plenty of wildlife. Keep you eyes peeled for bald eagles, seals, otters, starfish, jellyfish, and more. 

There are plenty of options for watercraft rentals in Brentwood Bay ranging from kayaks to stand-up paddleboards.
