I'd definitely recommend this place for kayak rentals! A beautiful spot to start (right at Olympic village) and a beautiful area to check out downtown Vancouver's sights!

Great way to see the skyline of Vancouver! Very calm water which is excellent for beginners. DON'T fall in because the water is dirty! They also have lockers so you can lock up your belongings. Great kayaking!
