Welcome to Ocean River Sports’ website. Our retail store is now closed permanently, but our Adventure Centre is still open!

With over 30 years in the business, Ocean River includes an outstanding kayaking school, and offers half, full and multi-day tours as well as rentals.
Our unique location just north of the Johnson St. Bridge allows us the opportunity to kayak from our own docks and explore the wondrous Victoria Inner Harbour. If it’s windy or marine traffic is too busy, the upper harbour & the Gorge Waterway are also excellent destinations.
For off-the-beaten-track travellers, we also have locations at Oak Bay and Saturna Island where we offer tours, courses and rentals.
We have maintained a 5-star TripAdvisor Rating and Certificate of Excellence since 2015.
