Boating & Sailing
Sailboat (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Vancouver Island is a prime boating destination for both novice and advanced boaters, and it offers marine landscapes from sheltered inland waterways to the rugged open ocean on the west coast.
The inshore waters around southern Vancouver Island provide excellent sailing and boating opportunities. One of the most popular boating destinations is the Gulf Islands, which provides a haven of safe anchorages, picturesque bays and charming towns.
Experienced, certified skippers or eager students wanting to learn the art of sailing will find skippered and bareboat charters available from a number of Vancouver Island communities. After setting sail, make use of the numerous outdoor activities on Vancouver Island, such as fishing, whale watching, and exploring beaches and coves.
