Wear Appropriate Clothing

BC water is typically cold to very cold. Wetsuits should be worn for open water crossings or rivers, even if the air temperature is quite warm. A drysuit (not the neoprene diving type) is a great investment for paddling in BC and can be used on the ocean, rivers and more exposed lake trips. They are very versatile because you can change the amount of insulation you wear under the drysuit, making them useful for all four seasons.
