Launch from Gibsons Landing Harbour. You can rent kayaks from Sunshine Kayaking and depart from their dock in Gibsons Landing Harbour. There is also a launch site in Gibsons Harbour. Follow the main street of Lower Gibsons around the waterfront, turn left at Headlands Road and follow it to a firm sand beach just beyond the marine and inside the breakwater, at the foot of Steep Bluff. Drive your vehicle on the beach to unload your gear, but remember to park up the road. This is one of the easiest launching sites on the Sunshine Coast, as it places you at water’s edge in all conditions. Once you have launched from Gibsons Harbour, a number of alternative routes to Plumper Cove Provincial Park are available. You may want to paddle north along the coast to see Gibsons shoreline and its environment before crossing Shoal Channel to Keats Island. Or you can head directly to Plumper Cove from the launch site. This is a crossing of about 1.6 km over open water, another chance to savour the splendour of the coastal mountains. If the channel is windy, you may prefer to go south around Steep Bluff, cross the narrow channel to Keats Island and follow the shoreline to the park.When you arrive into Plumpers Cove you will slip into the cove behind the Shelter Islands and you will see the public wharf and the park. There are hiking trails that follow the coast and wind through the forest, where you can see many bird species. Return to Gibsons Landing Harbou
