WELCOME TO TAKAYA TOURS
Come share an experience you will never forget…
Our 35 foot traditional style ocean-going canoes will take you on an unforgettable journey across the waters and back through time. While you explore the rich marine coastlines of Burrard Inlet (Səl̓ilw̓ət), our experienced guides will share legends, songs, and stories that will help you to create memories that will last a lifetime!
Belcarra Park is an important place for the Tsleil-Waututh people. Known as Tum-Tumay-Whueton, meaning ‘biggest place for the people‘, the park has been occupied for thousands of years and was the large winter gathering place. The long houses are now gone but much of the natural beauty remains.
Whey-ah-wichen or Cates Park, is an ancestral village site located on the inlet in North Vancouver. The hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ (Hun’qumyi’num) place name means “facing both directions” and “facing the wind.” TAKAYA offers opportunities to explore these ancient places on tour or with our kayak rentals in both of these locations.
