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.
