Wharfs & Moorage

Trail Bay Pier and Day Float

The Trail Bay Pier is a present day version of the wharf that welcomed visitors to Sechelt as early as the 1900s.  The pier has free 24 hour seasonal moorage on the attached float to welcome small boats, from the May long weekend to late September.  Located in downtown Sechelt, this day float can easily be used for a quick stopover for dinner, diving and boat supply, groceries, fuel or shopping.  If you wish to stay longer, mooring buoys are available. Year-round the views of Georgia Strait, Vancouver Island and Trail Bay are enjoyed, along with daily fishing and swimming. Interpretative signage display some of the local history.  Adjacent to the pier a small ramp allows kayaks and small boats to access the waters of Trail Bay.





Davis Bay Pier and Boulevard

The prominent Davis Bay Pier is part of the Davis Bay Boulevard, the most popular waterfront walkway and beach area of Sechelt.  A wharf has been present at this location since 1922. In present times this wharf attracts walkers, fishermen and swimmers. The pier offers views of Georgia Strait and Trail Bay. Although it does not serve as a moorage facility anymore, some remaining pilings do offer an informal moorage option close to this popular area. The area also offers restaurants, cafés and an organic grocery store.




Porpoise Bay Harbour and Government Wharf

Situated at the headwaters of Sechelt Inlet, Porpoise Bay hugs the shore of the District of Sechelt where vessels coming in through Skookumchuk Narrows can tie up at the launching ramp float for a day trip into downtown Sechelt. The launch area is available for a $5.00 fee and tickets are available at the Municipal Paid Parking lot ticket dispenser. Porpoise Bay Government Wharf also has an abundance of wildlife, excellent drinking water, a pump out, locking gates and night time caretakers, along with washroom and laundry facilities nearby. Moorage is available by the night or by the month. Staying overnight at the Porpoise Bay Government Wharf requires a Harbour Authority Berthage Agreement.
