If you're a paddler who would like to visit Gibsons Landing and spend a day on the Sunshine Coast, here's a chance to combine your two interests.
The idea is leave the car at home. Walk on at Horseshoe Bay, walk off and launch at Langdale. It's an easy shoreline paddle in Howe Sound to visit Gibsons Landing and explore the waterfront market, shops and restaurants, then paddle back amid the mountain-backed splendor. Land at the beach at Gibsons Marina or adjacent Winegarden Park for your visit in Gibsons. Return the same day or overnight at Plumper Cove Marine Provincial Park on nearby Keats Island.
Distance: 10 km return.
Part of the BC Marine Trails' Walk-on, Paddle-off program.
