For the 11th year, kayakers, canoeists and even some stand-up paddleboarders flocked down to the marina to make the annual Discovery Passage Passage.
The event is a “hands across the water” celebrating the historic connection between Campbell River and Cape Mudge over on Quadra Island. The paddlers are welcomed ashore by the people of Cape Mudge in a ceremony centred around the village’s cedar great canoe.
It’s not a race, there are no prizes and it’s free to enter. Upwards of 150 boats – many with families taking part together – make the approximately half-hour, 6.5km trek each year.
