The many rivers and lakes in the Chetwynd area are suited to both motorized and non-motorized boating.
Jet boat, canoe, and kayak Sukunka River, Pine River, Moberly River, Moberly Lake, or Gwillim Lake. Boating trips require planning ahead and awareness of water conditions.
Head up the mountain-born Sukunka River to view the cascading Sukunka Falls. The Sukunka is noted as a challenging river with shallow canals and choppy waters. It requires experienced boaters to exercise caution and awareness while navigating floating debris, rocks, and other hazards.
Boating access to the Sukunka River is found along Highway 29 south of the Tidwell Bend Bridge at the confluence of the Sukunka and Pine Rivers. Riverside access is also available via the Sukunka Forest Service Road.
