With more than 8,000 lakes and 15,000km/9,320mi of coastline found in the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region, there are ample opportunities for boating and sailing.
Charter your own vessel or join an organized departure. Several operators, including Bluewater Adventures, offer multi-day trips along the coast.
Jet boating tours are also a great way to experience the history and beauty of the Fraser River and numerous other rivers and lakes in this region.
The rugged coastline of BC’s scenic central coast is a maze of straits, sounds, and fjords, with hundreds of islands and inlets.
Sail to remote coastal communities and explore Aboriginal history and undisturbed pristine destinations. Along the way, look for whales, eagles, porpoises and bears.
