Join the BC Marine Trails Network in a weekend celebration of paddling and camaraderie Sept. 15-17 amid the splendor of the Salish Sea.
The Salish Sea Marine Trail connects Victoria to Vancouver as part of the Trans Canada Trail, and the grand opening celebration on Newcastle Island puts you on the doorstep of some of the great wilderness locations of this multi-faceted paddling route.
The grand opening weekend event includes two initiatives - the marine trail grand opening and a new annual race, the Crazy Eight, which loops around Newcastle and Protection islands.
Join us for this piece of history in the making and meet our friends at the Snuneymuxw First Nation who will be our gracious hosts at this event and into the future as a key waypoint on the Salish Sea Marine Trail.
Volunteering for this event may grant SKGABC guides 1.5 years of Ongoing Training / professional development credits.
