Howe Sound Boating – Horseshoe Bay
Howe Sound about 12 miles from Vancouver, is the “backyard” for Vancouver area boaters. Stunning Coast Range mountains surround Howe Sound. Since the sound is largely unpopulated, it provides a wilderness setting close to the city. Watch for the considerable drift floating in Howe Sound.
Horseshoe Bay. Horseshoe Bay is the eastern terminus of ferries serving the Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast, and Vancouver Island. Sewell’s Marina, a large breakwater-protected public marina, is located to the west of the ferry docks. Boaters transiting this area are urged to use cautions because of the steady procession of large ferry boats.
