Top 5 Paddleboarding Spots
The top 5 spots in Powell River for stand up paddle boarding (SUP) include Willingdon Beach, Mowat Bay, Inland Lake Provincial Park, Saltery Bay Provincial Park, and Shingle Mill across to Tony’s Point and Back. Of course, you can paddle board anywhere on the ocean with good weather and access points, however Willingdon and Saltery Bay offer an abundance of underwater sights, as well as ferry views, island and mountain views, and the beauty of the Salish Sea. Willingdon is a great spot for beginners, as well as Mowat bay which is a great park to start on a lake, as you can paddle across to the cliffs or around the yellow buoys. Inland lake is a wondrous place to see as you can paddle along the shoreline aside the trail that stretches 13 kilometres around the lake. Paddling from Shingle Mill to Tony’s point and back is a great activity to do if you want a destination. Pack up a picnic bag and paddle across for an afternoon snack and swim. Bring your paddle board or rent one upon arrival for your next trip to Powell River!
