PLAY ON THE SUNSHINE COAST
Whether you are visiting the Coast, or you're a plugged-in Local, here's a guide for finding activities, clubs and organizations on the Sunshine Coast - recreation, classes, and just the weird & wonderful.

GEAR RENTALS & SALES
The Sunshine Coast is one of the best kayaking regions in BC, with very accessible waterfront, a range of paddling conditions, and protection inside Sechelt Inlet. Paddleboarding is also taking off.
It's been said that the Sunshine Coast is loaded with mountain bike trails, many 'expert' level (days 3-5 of the BC Bike Race are on the Sunshine Coast) and plenty of beginner trails in beautiful coastal forests.
The Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park is a destination that everyone gets to at least once, whether you're visiting or a 'local'. Summer is great for watching experienced whitewater kayakers playing.
There are still places to rent an outboard boat on the Coast for a day of sightseeing or fishing, and kayak rentals, paddleboards, and sailboats are all great ways to interact with the marine environment.
I'll do my best to keep an updated calendar of classes of all kinds happening on the Sunshine Coast here. Be sure to send me any you would like to have added!
ARTS & GALLERIES
FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS
Off-leash parks, hiking trails, beaches, kennels and pet-sitters, and where to buy pet food and accessories. Remember - please carry bags if you have a dog with you, and keep our Coast beautiful and relaxed about dogs!
The Sunshine Coast has hundreds of geocaches, some in easily accessible areas, and some you really have to work for. Bring your pencil, your GPS and some small knicknacks or off-continent coins to exchange at some of the caches.
