Soon there will be an electronically operated derrick.

At our Harbour Office we have information on local attractions and events, local businesses and restaurants. In addition there are pamphlets on boating, marina and wildlife topics and maps of Sechelt, Sunshine Coast and local hiking trails and beach accesses.
