Vancouver to Victoria 150km SUP Expedition

Earlier this week, Dave Quinn, Kalum Ko and I paddled into Victoria Harbour – salty, sweaty, happy, and inspired after 5 days in the wild.

We’d paddled from Vancouver — Dave and KK in a double kayak, me on a Standup Paddle Board — to help raise awareness for CPAWS Big Wild Challenge initiative, and their campaign to strengthen marine protection in the Southern Georgia Strait.

There were a few lumpy, bumpy, windy moments that made paddling the SUP a challenge, but overall I felt fit and balanced.

The response to our trip was tremendous — and we achieved the our goal of 1000 Facebook Shares, which generated $2000 for CPAWS.   Thanks to all for their support and encouragement.

The Times Colonist was there for our arrival, and the Van2VicSUP expedition even made front page news!

The Wild.  Stories.  Now.
