Thetis Lake

Stand Up Paddle Board Thetis Lake Victoria BC

Thetis Lake is one of the most popular lakes in the Victoria area.

The lake is split into Lower Thetis Lake and Upper Thetis lake, but locals will be typically visiting the beaches and trails of Lower Thetis lake.

A perfect place for a lake stand up paddle board. No boats are allowed and you can even journey over to an island and hang out there for the afternoon. We recommend paddling around island and when you get to the end of Lower Thetis lake you go under the bridge and then cruise around Upper Thetis lake. You may even be enticed to stop and watch some locals doing some cliff jumping. This lake has it all!
