Wavedancer on Hurst Island (God’s Pocket Marine Provincial Park)


Gabriela’s touring kayak, a Nigel Dennis / Sea Kayaking UK Explorer LV (low volume), is very playful when paddled, unloaded, in intermediate conditions. A friend coined the phase that “Gabriela is dancing on the waves”, and soon the name Wavedancer stuck for her boat.

Being the faithful companion on Gabriela’s multi-day trips on the waters around Vancouver Island, and having seen a fair share of outfitting, maintenance, and yes, also some repairs, it was only natural that Wavedancer should lend her name to the Comox Valley’s dedicated small boat repair shop.
