Belcarra Park Paddling Centre in Port Moody

Belcarra Park is an important place for the Tsleil-Waututh people. Known as Tum-Tumay-Whueton, meaning ‘biggest place for the people‘, the park was occupied year around but was busiest during the long winter seasons. In Belcarra Park you can still see the natural beauty of the forest, wild life, flora and fauna that once was abundant in previous generations. Takaya Tours currently offers rentals of single kayaks, double kayaks and stand up paddleboards (SUP) at the Belcarra Picnic area.

Situated at the mouth of Indian Arm, Belcarra Park Paddling Centre is an excellent place to get into the water. Located at 4500 Tum-tumay-whueton Drive, it is a 20 minute drive from downtown Coquitlam and is a popular place to get out on the water.

Getting to the Belcarra Picnic Area

Safety

Solo paddlers must know how to recover from a capsize in-order to rent a boat and paddle unaccompanied.

Getting Ready to go Kayaking

Once you’ve reserved your boat(s), plan to arrive Kayak Centre at least 20 minutes before your reserved time, especially if you are coming down on a sunny summer weekend. Dress for the weather and be prepared to be active and comfortable. Before setting out on your journey you must first consider your personal limits and those of the group in which you paddle. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How far will you go?
  • How long will you be paddling for?
  • What type of environmental factors will affect your paddle such as wind and or tides?
  • Do you have the skills to land at a destination and launch again?
  • Do you have the skills to handle a capsize situation?

Through education and experience paddlers can become more aware of their personal limits, keeping them safer on the water and making the time spent much more enjoyable. Deep Cove Canoe & Kayak offers a wide range of educational courses that will fast track you to becoming a safer paddler. Accidents do happen and people do capsize. Don’t become a statistic because you didn’t know.
