*The day float is scheduled to re-open for public use on Saturday, July 22, 2017.*
Trail Bay Pier was built in 2000. A day float was added in 2010, and is in place each summer from May long-weekend to late September. Pleasure crafts and kayaks can tie up to this float and access downtown Sechelt. There are also mooring buoys by the float for boats 30' or less, as long as winds conditions are under 15 knots.
With close proximity to the Sechelt downtown core, visitors can walk from the pier, via Boulevard or Wharf Avenue, to shopping, services and restaurants. A walking tour of Sechelt is a great diversion for families. Look for plaques that explain early history of the area and its settlers. Origins of present day Sechelt are depicted on the plaque at Trail Bay Pier.
The enhancement of marine access along the Coast has long been looked to as a strategy to stimulate tourism and offer a stopping off point for travellers. This is now a segment of Sechelt's new Strategic Plan.
