Boating
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 35 miles (57 km) 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!


Golf Year-Round
For those who love to golf year-round, the Sunshine Coast is the place to be. The 18 hole, par 72 Myrtle Point Golf Course and Clubhouse is located in the foothills of the Coast Mountains. This Les Furber designed course offers four sets of tees for all levels of ability. A fully stocked pro-shop, driving range, putting green and Canadian Professional Golfers’ Association membership ensure a first class golfing experience. Golf cart rentals are available, plus shower-equipped locker rooms. After the game, enjoy a meal at the Orca Bar and Grill.


Fish & Seafood
The Sunshine Coast is truly a fishing mecca. Whether you are reeling in a salmon or jigging for cod, fly fishing for cutthroat, rainbow trout and steelhead salmon or trolling for Kokanee in one of the region’s spectacular lakes, you will not be disappointed!


International Dive Destination
Known internationally as the “Dive Capital of Canada”, the Upper Sunshine Coast was rated by Rodales Dive Magazine as "The #1 Best Overall Dive Destination in the World” for 2006. A predator-free dive habitat, the coastal waters boast a visibility range of up to 30 metres (98 feet). Especially clear waters during the winter months make for excellent viewing of the area’s wolf eel and giant octopus. One of the area’s leading diving attractions is located in the waters in front of Saltery Bay Provincial Park. The Emerald Princess, a 2.5 metre (8 foot) bronze statue of a mermaid located below 18 metres (59 feet) of water attracts dive enthusiasts from around the world. Other dive sites include several wrecks, the Okeover Caves and numerous coastal boat dives which highlight the diverse and colorful underwater world of the BC coast.


Hike, Bike & Climb
The Sunshine Coast’s thousands of hectares of untouched forest and coastal mountains make for unbeatable mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing. Thousands of kilometres of off-road access and trail networks facilitate easy day trips to scenic view points, lakes, rivers, streams and surrounding mountains.


The 170 km (106 miles) Sunshine Coast Trail accommodates everyone from day hikers to ultra-marathoners. Easy to get to with more than twenty access points along the way, hikers are rewarded with abundant wildlife, gorgeous lookout points and stunning westerly views of the Strait of Georgia and its emerald islands. The trail is extremely well maintained, and hikers can take advantage of camping facilities and lodging located along the route.
