Go kayaking or paddle boarding


Bring your own or rent a kayak, canoe or paddle board. The Deep Cove Kayak Centre offers rentals, lessons and guided tours. There’s no better way to explore the area than by gliding across the water.

Visit Honey Doughnuts

No visit to Deep Cove would be complete without stopping by the popular Honey Doughnuts & Goodies shop. Their honey, maple and chocolate doughnuts are to die for.


Hike Quarry Rock


It’s one of the most scenic hikes in the Vancouver area. The easy 3.8km hike takes about an hour and a half to complete round trip. But, when you reach the viewing point at the top, you’re going to want to spend some time there. Have a picnic or save your doughnut to enjoy with breathtaking views of Indian Arm and the mountains around Belcarra.
