Rocky Point Boat Launch

As of Saturday, May 30, 2020, boaters will no longer need to book a launch time or pay a reservation fee to use the Rocky Point Boat Launch in Port Moody. Residents and visitors can launch boats from Rocky Point Park located at 2800 Murray St. daily from dawn to dusk with the purchase of a boat launch pass.  We recommend that you arrive early in the day because parking will fill up quickly, especially during the summer months.

Daily boat launch passes

Boaters can purchase a daily pass for boat launch, retrieval, and parking for $21.10 plus tax from the ticket dispenser near the boat ramp with a credit card only. Please note the ticket dispenser has a keypad – minimize the risk to your health and safety by bringing hand sanitizer and practicing proper hygiene. IMPORTANT: Please do your part to help slow down the spread of COVID-19: practice physical distancing in the boat launch area and out on the water. Visit Boating BC’s website for tips on maintaining social distancing while boating.

You can purchase an annual boat launch pass from the Recreation Complex by calling 604-469-4556 daily from 8am-4pm. Each resident is only eligible for one boat launch pass.

  • $169.15 + tax for Port Moody and Burnaby residents
  • $296.75 + tax for non-residents

If you purchased a daily boat launch pass by phone from April 18th-May 20th, those fees can be applied toward the purchase of an annual boat launch pass. Your receipts will already be on file and no other proof of purchase is necessary. Simply mention your prior bookings when calling.

Kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards

Launching kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards from the boat launch is permitted between 8am and 8pm. A boat launch pass is not required. These watercraft can be dropped off at the sidewalk along the west side of the Boathouse Restaurant at Esplanade and carried to the boat launch. There is 15-minute parking along Esplanade for this purpose.
