Kayaking around the islands
This is a wonderfully fun and serene way to see the islands that surround Salt Spring. Whether you're new (like we were) or seasoned, there is something for everyone. Island Escapades is a great company, and the staff is fantastic! We were luck to have perfect kayaking conditions in late October - clear and crisp air, calm waters, and not another kayak or boat on the move anywhere near us! Even if you feel intimidated, PLEASE try it! If you lve to be active in anyway at all, you will love this!
Equipment: You can get the gear there - it is included in the tour! Bring a hat, though. If you're experienced, they do rent out equiptment without the tour.

Hiking is awesome!
There are SO MANY places to hike on Salt Spring Island. In fact, if you like to hike, you could probably go every day for a month and not see the same place twice!! There is no point listing them, since you can hike anywhere! However, be sure to be prepared, and try to let someone know where you are going in case something happens to you!
Equipment: A good pair of shoes with good soles, a hat, and if it's windy a windbreaker, scarf and gloves are a good idea.
