Saanich police are searching for the owner of this canoe

Missing your canoe? It may be in Portage Inlet

Saanich police seeking owner of red Explorer 166 canoe to pick up their belonging

Saanich police want the owner of a canoe that drifted away, likely during Monday’s windstorm, to go pick it up from Portage Inlet.

Sgt. Dean Jantzen said police have received multiple calls about the abandoned red boat, but no calls about a missing person, so it’s “highly unlikely” that the boat’s arrival in the Inlet came following a capsizing.

“It’s been drifting in an out with the tide for a couple days, but it’s tied up now,” Jantzen said. “If it belongs to you, go get it.”

The boat is a red Explorer 166 with a beige interior.

It is now tied to a log in the 1100 block of Portage Rd., so it doesn’t float away.
