PADDLING IS A SPORT IDEALLY SUITED TO VICTORIA

Did you know that Victoria is one of the few places in Canada that you can paddle all year ’round? We may some rain during our short winters, but temperatures seldom drop below freezing and the beautiful Gorge Waterway and Victoria’s harbour system are splendid, scenic and rewarding for paddlers in all seasons.

There are plenty of teams at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club actively recruiting new members, and we have new teams forming every year.
