Boating & Sailing
Sailboat (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Sicamous is often dubbed the "houseboating capital of Canada," and for good reason, as it is home base for hundreds of floating cottages.
It is quite a spectacle to see row upon row of the big boats lined up at dock waiting for the next round of houseboaters, then filing along the narrow Sicamous Channel on route to Mara Lake or Shuswap Lake. Houseboating is not just limited to on-boat activities: It also allows easy access to swimming, fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing.
Beach the houseboat and go for a swim, take a hike, or fish for any of the 19 species that dwell in that waters of Shuswap Lake. Photograph Albas Falls, Margaret Falls, the Marble Point Lighthouse, or Aboriginal pictographs, which are only accessible by boat (and must be respected and preserved).
