Protected by Vancouver Island to the west, the Strait of Georgia is a boater’s gateway to the most dramatic coastal scenery in the world. Due to the mild temperatures and warm pacific currents of the Strait of Georgia, boating is a year-round activity on the Sunshine Coast. Discover Savary Island, laced with long white sand beaches, and the gorgeous deserted bays of Hernando, Redonda and Cortes Island in the calm, warm waters of Desolation Sound.

Protected waters make the Upper Sunshine Coast a prime destination for ocean kayaking and canoeing. Popular spots include Jervis Inlet, Chatterbox Falls, Hardy, Nelson, Savary and Cortes Island, the Copeland Islands Marine Park and the numerous islets and quiet bays of Desolation Sound. Eco-tours, kayak and canoe rentals for day trips, as well as fully outfitted, guided expeditions, can be booked locally.

Enjoy easy road access to the many lakes and rivers. The area boasts more than 50 fresh water lakes surrounded by thousands of hectares of pristine coastal forests. Inland Lake is known for its level, 14 km trail which can accommodate wheelchairs and strollers. You may prefer a day of paddling the calm, clear waters of a peaceful lake, or, you can take on the challenge of a 57 km (35 mile) canoe route which includes 8 lakes and 5 portages. Dinner is fresh and never far away, as the region’s lakes teem with trout and, at certain times of the year, steelhead salmon!
