Breathe a big sigh of relief and feel your stresses slip away as you embark on a paddle with friends at Sproat Lake Landing’s new Adventure Centre. 


Team HOVI recently enjoyed a relaxing morning paddle at Sproat Lake Landing. Its new Adventure Centre is the Alberni Valley’s only lake-side option to rent a Kayak, Canoe or Stand Up Paddleboard. We were impressed by the helpful staff, stunning scenery, and advantageous timing with the Coulson Mars Flying Tanker flying past. Soon after embarking, we exclaimed, “We need to do this more often!”


After our paddle, we enjoyed a mouth-watering, locally-sourced lakeside lunch and our thirst was quenched by refreshing Blackberry Lavender Mojitos at Drinkwaters.



Sproat Lake is a water-lover`s wonderland...and one of Vancouver Island`s most inviting natural treasures.


Fourteen kilometres west of Port Alberni and 100 kilometres east of Tofino on Highway 4, the setting of Sproat Lake Landing combines the picturesque, cottage country charm with the rugged attitude the Pacific Rim Highway is famous for.

Crystal clear warm water and long sunny days. Perfectly situated in the middle of Vancouver Island, Sproat Lake is a natural treasure, over 25 kms in length with more than 300 kms of shoreline.

Sproat Lake Landing is one of BC’s finest full service resorts offering four star comfort for boaters, swimmers, water skiers, fishermen, canoeists, hikers and sun seekers.

Sproat Lake Landing is located on the lake, 14 kilometers west of Port Alberni on scenic Highway 4 toward Tofino and Ucluelet.      

Stay at the Sproat Lake Inn, dine and relax at Drinkwaters. Indulge in local treats, coffee, paninis and fresh pastries at Dellas Café and Grocery. The on-site Liquor Store offers a full selection of local wines, spirits, and craft beer.

Heart of Vancouver Island would like to thank Chad & David from Sproat Lake Landing for being such great hosts. Thanks for inviting us to play, paddle, eat & relax!
