Choose Between Two Options

Safety equipment and life vests fill the rented boat, and Snug Cove—a Bowen Island village—can be reached in about 10 minutes. Sewell’s recommends you bring your cell phone. Sea Safaris embark on a two-hour adventure into the diverse ecosystems of Howe Sound. Guides narrate trips as boats explore sea caves and dodge cartoon coyotes falling off steep cliffs. Along the way, sightseers spy wildlife such as harbour seals and bald eagles.

Sewell's Marina

Since 1931, more than three million visitors have walked down the docks of Sewell's Marina, stepped into a boat, and floated through the islands and inlets of Howe Sound. The marina's vessels have proffered spectacular glimpses into nature, such as the plunging waters of Shannon Falls and the wild blacksmiths that gallop across Anvil Island Cliffs.

Sewell's Marina's current trips tread the line between education and adventure. Their crews pilot vessels on fishing charters and aquatic thrills such as a Sea Quest scavenger hunts. Sea Safari tours send boats speeding alongside cliffs and into the habitats of seals, bald eagles, and marine birds. Even with boat rentals, Sewell's crew still guides customers, giving dockside instruction on how to operate speedboats and politely ask harbour seals for directions.

Customer Reviews

So much fun seeing the seals around the bird sanctuary near Anvil island

Lots of fun. Didn't see a lot of wildlife accept for seals and some different birds, but the ride was great. Even with the survival suits on you get wet, so I would recommend bringing a change of clothes and perhaps a soft cloth to clean the salt off of glasses (they give you a pair) on the boat.
