Silver Falls

Silver Falls is located about two thirds of the way up Indian Arm. Tucked away in a nook of the steep shore line it can be easily missed. The Tsleil Waututh Nation (People of the Inlet) believe that it is not appropriate to look at Silver Falls.

Distance from Deep Cove: 12 km

Paddling Time One Way: Fast: 2 hrs. Avg: 3 hrs Leisurely: 4 hrs

Suggested Route: Paddle the west shore of Indian Arm.


  • Currents in the mouth of the falls can be tricky for inexperienced paddlers
  • The water is very deep here and often large harbour cruise boats pull right up close.
  • The rocks can be slippery.
