Belcarra is another favorite because it's only 15 minutes from home and there are many different places to explore by launching at the main beach. There's lots of parking and it's only a short walk to the rocky beach.
There's usually lots of people crabbing off the dock, but what's better than crabbing off a sup! Unfortunately our crabs were too small so we set them free.
For a shorter paddle, I either go left to Admirality Point or right to Jug Island. When there aren't too many boats going up Indian arm, I'd recommend paddling over to Deep Cove and stopping at Honey Doughnuts.
