An extremely popular vacation cabin lake, Sakinaw is one of the largest lakes on the Sunshine Coast.

It is also equipped with a full-scale boat launch and parking for cars with trailers. You can often find an excellent display of water skiing talent cruising the lake. The boat launch is located at the end of Sakinaw Lake Road. This is truly a boater’s paradise lake. Bring your kayak, canoe, or SUP and explore the endless shoreline. You may even spot some petroglyphs on an ancient rock face, or discover a new jumping rock (please jump carefully!). What makes this lake truly unique is its (literal) connection to the ocean. The lake narrows at one end, connecting it the outside Salish Sea.

This lake is ideal for:

  • boating
  • water skiing/wakeboarding
  • paddle sports
