- About Pacifica - 

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

A Little bit More About Us ... 

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, and corporate programs. 

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!

Pacifica Paddle is the success of a group of dedicated folks, and we'd like to welcome you to our paddling community. 

In April 2021, Pacifica came under new ownership, passing the torch from the founder Peter, to his General Manager, who's been with the business since 2015. E-J and her amazing team are working hard to improve the Pacifica Paddle experience, from renovating the Brentwood dock and Swartz Bay boat barn, to upgrading the website and customer booking experience. We will continue to improve this place, so you, our guests, will enjoy your time here. 

Meet Our Team

We Would Love to Work with You!

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.

Please feel free to send us an email with details about your event and the type of sponsorship you are requesting
