Our city is located on the Burrard Inlet, which is a great spot for recreational boating, kayaking, sailing, and paddle boarding. Take advantage of the natural environment by launching your boat at Rocky Point to get out on the water. Make sure to stay safe while boating and follow our anchoring regulations.

Boat pump-out services

Help us keep the inlet clean by using pump-out services instead of dumping sewage into the water. Boat sewage is a source of fecal bacteria that harms the environment and can put public health at risk. The City of Vancouver and the Georgia Straight Alliance provide detailed maps and lists of pump-out services available in our area.

We recommend that you call ahead to make sure that pump-out services are still available.

Green boating

As we enjoy the boating season, it is important to do our part to keep the water and environment clean. Learn about green boating practices and follow these tips when you are boating:

  • avoid unnecessary idling and turn off your boat when you are docked
  • maintain your boat motor and battery
  • don't overload your boat because excess weight will use additional fuel
  • avoid spilling fuel
