Pender Harbour / Egmont

Known as the “Venice of the North” because of its maze of glacial waterways and freshwater lakes, boats are still the preferred mode of transport. Egmont sits at the top of the Sechelt Peninsula near the famous Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park.

Madeira Park, Garden Bay, Francis Peninsula and Irvine´s Landing comprise the Pender Harbour area.

The Best of Pender Harbour - World Class Fishing, the Coast by Horseback and Kayak, and Golf

Pender Harbour is made up of Madeira Park, Garden Bay and Irvine´s Landing. While the lure of the catch still draws recreational fishermen from all over the world, artists, photographers, horseback riders, paddlers and golfers have also discovered the area´s allure.  True to the waterways that make up the area, even the Pender Harbour Golf Club, with its rolling hilly fairways, has creeks rushing through the course.

The Best of Egmont - Skoomkumchuck Narrows Provincial Park and BC´s Largest Saltwater Rapids.
Egmont is famous as home to Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park with its amazing display of turbulent tidal rapids connecting Sechelt and Jervis Inlets. Enjoy a gentle forest hike and maybe catch expert kayakers as they surf BC´s largest saltwater rapids. Spend an incredible day diving in a secluded quiet cove or hire a marine sightseeing tour for a day of astonishing natural scenery.
