Puntledge River – August 2

Destination:  Up the Courtenay, Puntledge and Tsolum Rivers from Simms Park kayak dock.

Date & Time:  Wednesday, Aug 2, 2017 (high tide will be 14’ at 4:30pm).

Meeting Place:  Meet at Simms Park dock at 5:00pm for 5:30 launch.  Return by 8:00pm.

Rating level:  1 – easy day paddle.

Description:  Note that for an extra challenge we will be launching from a dock in the lagoon area, beside Simms Park washrooms (across the water from the White Whale). Lots of parking available in Simms Park, although we may wish to drop off kayaks at the Simms Park dock, then move cars to parking spaces. We will assist each other stabilizing kayaks as we enter and exit at the dock. Paddle around Simms Park, under 5th Street bridge, keeping right along Lewis Park to the Tsolum toward the exhibition grounds. Return to junction with Puntledge and take it almost to Condensory bridge, then back to Simms park dock.
