With over 100 km of coastline, including Georgia Strait, Sechelt Inlet, Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet, the Sunshine Coast has plenty of places to explore on the water. Some of the many tour operators on the Coast are listed below.
Enjoy an intimate guided tour on a small power vessel, or a day trip to the famous Chatterbox Falls in Jervis Inlet on a larger boat with meals served. Sail the quiet waters of Sechelt Inlet or the sunny seas of Georgia Strait. Or get closer to the water on a kayak. A trip to the Sunshine Coast isn't complete if you haven't spent some time on the water.
