If your idea of fun involves water, the North Shore has everything from ocean to streams. Sea kayakers can paddle in the tranquil ocean waters of Deep Cove or Indian Arm; while the rushing rapids of the Capilano and Seymour Rivers are popular with river kayers. Local windsurfers flock to Ambleside, and Whytecliff Park is one of the best spots in B.C. for scuba diving. Anglers will love the freshwater sport found year-round in local lakes and rivers.
