Canada at its best, and yet so close to Vancouver. A small scenic ocean village east of Mt. Seymour in North Vancouver.
Deep Cove makes a quaint trip for a few hours. The village is nestled on the east side of the Seymour Mountain. Pick the warmer and sunnier days to visit Deep Cove as it does receive more rain than any other place in the Vancouver Lower Mainland area.
There are a few things you can do when you get there. You can stroll along the shortish seawall and venture out on the docks. Check out all the kayakers coming and going all day long in summer. There is also plenty of green lawn space to spread out a picnic blanket and have a BBQ.
There are a few kid’s playgrounds to choose from and plenty to eat in the Village. Remember that Deep Cove is east facing, so you lose the sun early in the day. Mornings through lunch are best.
You can get to Deep Cove by bus, bike or car. Parking can get tight with all the kayakers that come and go, but you should be able to find something … even if it is street parking a few hundred feet away.
