The Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is home to some of the finest recreational boating playgrounds in the world.

Explore serene coastal fjords, pristine marine parks and hundreds of islands, bays and coves – the opportunities are nearly limitless.

Local charter operations run modern fleets of power boats, and offer both bareboat charters and skippered charters, as well as cruise-and-learn boat trips. Yacht lovers can have an authentic nautical adventure on board a skippered one-day, multi-day or self-guided boat charter. Guided fishing or cruising trips are a perfect way to enjoy a day on the water.

Sailing and Boating Facilities

Many ports have resort marinas with a pub/restaurant, general store, fuel dock, laundromat and showers. It's recommended that boaters and yachters contact their chosen marina to confirm hours of operation and facilities. Public boat-launching facilities are also available at many freshwater lakes.

Most coastal communities in this region have public docks and moorage facilities that are open to all users. Visit the Harbour Authority Association of British Columbia for a comprehensive list of docks and amenities.

For information on operating pleasure crafts, please refer to Transport Canada's guidelines.
