ABOUT PACIFICA

Whether it's a two hour paddle in Brentwood Bay, or a multi-day trip from Canoe Cove, you'll find yourself being nurtured by nature in the beautiful surroundings of the Southern Gulf Islands.

 

With multiple great locations on the Saanich Peninsula (just outside Victoria, BC) we maintain the largest fleet of rental kayaks, canoes and stand up paddle boards on the West Coast. We also offer sales, repairs, lessons, tours, corporate programs & summer camps.

 

We match each customer to the watercraft best suited to their needs and ability. A team of knowledgeable guides and instructors are always available to answer your questions and our mission is to do everything possible to ensure that you have a great time on the water.

Our unique launching ramp allows paddlers safe, easy entry to the water with no wet feet!

Supporting Our Community - Sponsorships & Events

We love to support the work of various charity groups and non-profits who are working hard to make the Saanich Inlet / Saanich Peninsula a better place to live, work, and play. We are especially excited to support local causes that are providing meaningful growth opportunities for children and young people. Support usually comes in the form of an in-kind sponsorship, i.e. - a gift certificate for one of our products or services to be used as an auction item or prize.

In addition to in-kind sponsorship, we also run a number of fundraisers each year to support the work of various organizations. In recent years, we have supported Our Place Society, The Heart & Stroke Foundation, Saanich Inlet Network, Make-A-Wish BC & Yukon, and The Mustard Seed Food Bank, Monster & Sea 24.

At this time, we are open to sponsorship requests from organizations for the 2020 calendar year that meet the following criteria:

- Base of operations / main service area located on the Saanich Peninsula (Saanich to Swartz Bay)

- Non-profit or not-for-profit status

- Providing services to children, teens, at-risk individuals, seniors or veterans

- Event / program has run successfully for a minimum of 2 years

If the organization you represent meets this criteria, please feel free to send us an email with details about your event and the type of sponsorship you are requesting. We will do our best to respond within 5-7 business days. The earlier in the year you make the request, the more likely  we are to be able to offer support.
