Bowen Island's marinas provide an ideal jumping-off point to explore the pristine, mountain-flanked waters of Howe Sound in a yacht or powerboat.
Spend the day sailing up the Sunshine Coast, around Keats Island and Gambier Island, or off West Vancouver. Or find moorage at one of Bowen Island's marinas for a short stop or an overnight stay.
Marinas in Snug Cove
Three of Bowen Island's marinas - Union Steamship Company Marina, Bowen Island Marina, and the Bowen Island Municipality Wharf - are in Snug Cove.
The cove is located on the east side of the island where BC Ferries and water taxis arrive. The marinas are available year-round. Snug Cove is just 5.6km/3 nautical mi from the Horseshoe Bay marina in West Vancouver.
