Sunset Bliss

Enjoy an ocean level sunset with a relaxed paddle in the calm evening waters around the Pender Islands, soaking in the heat of the sun and it’s reflection from glassy ocean waters.  Pender Islands sunsets are best from zero altitude!

Enjoy this evening splendor from any angle.  Chose one of our launching locations at either Port Browning Marina or Hope Bay, or chose your own destination and we’ll meet you there! 

Don't forget your sunglasses!
