Explore Squamish

Boating & Sailing

Squamish has three marinas, each offering moorage options to help you get out onto the ocean to experience the serenity of our beautiful Howe Sound by sea. Expect to see new views of the Stawamus Chief and surrounding mountains as well as a possible glimpse of our local marine life including seals, dolphins and orcas.

BYOB (Bring Your Own Boat):

Overnight moorage, including a hot shower and power, is available at the Squamish Yacht Club. Contact the Port Captain or check in at the Harbour Office upon your arrival to verify privileges, instructions and visitor slip locations.

What to Do:

Travel options range in duration from short daytime trips to overnight stays to multi-day excursions to Anvil Island, the Defense Islands, Christie Island, Pam Rocks Wildlife Reserve as well as the Sunshine Coast and the many bays, coves and marine parks within Howe Sound.

Good to Know:

Transport Canada's Competency of Operators of Pleasure Craft Regulations require all operators of pleasure craft fitted with any type of motor and used for recreational purposes to carry proof of competency on board. The most common type of proof of competency is a Pleasure Craft Operator License.

Fuel Up:

Squamish does not have a boat-specific fueling station. The closest boat fueling station is located at Sewells Marina in Horseshoe Bay, about 45 minutes by power boat from the Squamish Marina.

The Squamish Adventure Guide is packed with everything you need to help you make the most out of your stay.
