Boating and cruising coastal waterways is both pastime and passion for many on the Sunshine Coast.

Our boating season is year-round, with an abundance of marine life including sea lions, porpoises, and orcas, which provide great wildlife viewing while at sea. Our waters are easily reached from Vancouver area marinas, or from the Gulf Islands and US. Unspoiled anchorages and protected bays are waiting to be explored by adventurous boaters. Many harbours have commercial marinas where you can dock your boat, get supplies, rent a boat or kayak, get a meal, or sign on for excursions.
