AHOY From the President of BC Ocean Boating Tourism Association

Welcome to British Columbia’s Pacific Coast, recognized as a world class marine destination for years by avid boaters and now supported with a dedicated marine sector web site focussed on your specific activity and needs. Thank you for considering our warm seas, countless islands and deep fjords as your boating destination.

Every trip will be unique and provide new experiences, even when you return to a favourite port of call, bay or inlet. For those who seek new horizons, the rewards are discovery of scenery and features found only on the wild, civilized coast of British Columbia.

Our commitment is to make boating enjoyable, safe and easily planned so you can appreciate what we are so proud of. We look forward to stimulating collaboration among our marine hospitality providers that will make British Columbia an even better place to experience nature up close and to enjoy our unique west coast  culture and comforts.

Whether you are Wild at Heart, or you prefer the solitude of quiet coves and calm seas or the flavourful culture of diverse marine communities, BC’s coastal regions provide experiences that will inspire memories that last a lifetime for you, your family and friends.

We are looking forward to taking your lines.

David Mailloux,
President & Chair — BC Ocean Boating Tourism Association
