Boats are a better way to sit on top of water than strapping life vests to reclining chairs or filling ponds with gelatin powder. Transform buoys into ottomans with today's Groupon: for $33, you get a one-hour boat rental for up to six passengers, safety equipment, and a tank of gas at Squamish Harbour Boat Rentals (a $75 value).
Squamish Harbour Boat Rentals' expert staff rents out fully fueled 17' Hourston vessels and enlightens each customer with detailed operational instructions to navigate self-guided tours of Howe Sound. Up to six adventurers pull on life jackets, pirouette down the dock, and rev a 60-horse power Yamaha outboard motor. Spanning 46 km from Horseshoe Bay to Squamish, Howe Sound brims with wildlife and picturesque views of rolling hills, snowcapped mountains, and lush forests. Passengers marvel at the glaciated coastline and scattered islands around Halkett Bay Marine Park and photograph ancient animal-shaped pictographs along Furry Creek. Boaters with fishing licenses can pause to drop lines into the tranquil water or dive for freshwater fruit punch in their fellow sailor's goblets.
Squamish Harbour Boat Rentals
Ragged coastlines cut by glaciers. Animal pictographs that echo an ancient past. Stretching 46 kilometres from Horseshoe Bay to Squamish, the Howe Sound flaunts these natural and man-made sights, which come into view to voyagers aboard Squamish Harbour Boat Rentals' Hourston powerboats. The 17-foot vessels, which comfortably seat up to six, ferry passengers through tranquil waters amid views of snow-capped mountains and lush forests. A stop at nearby Halkett Bay Marine Provincial Park yields the sight of fish swimming just beneath the water's surface, each just waiting to be caught by passengers’ fishing poles or their natural predators' tractor beams.
