Located in Victoria, British Columbia on beautiful Vancouver Island, Ocean River is one of the premier speciality kayak and adventure companies in North America. Brian Henry, the founder & current owner, has been running Ocean River since 1981, and Ocean River continues to be recognised as one of the most significant outdoor/paddlesports instructional & tours provider in North America.
The weather on Vancouver Island offers the best all season weather in Canada. It sees a much more temperate climate with the ocean air bringing in more humidity to the island, keeping it warmer, but this also brings rain and fog especially in the spring and fall. Because of the rain, however, Vancouver Island is truly lush and green with incredible forests and an amazing coastline that is waiting for you to explore.
At Ocean River we want you to be informed about all weather conditions on and around Vancouver Island, especially marine conditions for kayaking, kite surfing, windsurfers and sailors and offer the following links for help you with your planning.
