About Departure Bay

Take advantage of the numerous water sports in the area, including swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating & more.

If you’d rather stay on land, a diverse selection of hikes are a great way to get your blood pumping.

Or, kick back, relax and soak in the sun as you lay on the beach. For the early risers, watching the rising sun light up the morning sky with a golden glow is a must. Don’t worry if you’re not a morning person though, the Departure Bay sunsets are equally as breathtaking and colourful.
