Pacific International Kayak Association (PIKA)
Join us on
for the latest news and events!
PIKA was formed in 1997 by a group of avid sea kayakers. Members are enthusiasts living in south western British Columbia and the United States (our current “International” member is an ex-BC’er who lives in Texas).
We plan paddles starting from the ever-popular “Polar Bear Paddle” on January 1st, right through the entire year. Trips range from day paddles on the local lakes, rivers, and inlets, with longer trips of 3 to 14 days in areas like the Broken Group Islands, Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, Gods Pocket, Central Coast, Broughton Archipelago, and other wilderness areas of interest. In 2013, PIKA members did a ten-day paddle in Gwaii Haanas (Haida Gwaii).
Come out and join us and meet someone new to paddle with. We have created a unique identity: to help; to learn; to offer an enriching experience for people wanting to improve their paddling skills and find opportunities to enjoy BC’s waterways. We also have a Mentoring program to encourage members to join us on the paddles.
Monthly meetings are held a 7:30 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, September to May, with a Club Picnic/paddle in June. Meetings are at the Harmsworth Hall, 232nd Street, Langley, BC. (232nd Street exit just south of Highway #1, across from the Chevron Gas Station). Each meeting includes a presentation or a learning activity.
Anyone interested is welcome to join the club, or just to attend meetings.
