Howe Sound in 3 Days and 2 Nights

Itinerary for Granville Island, Vancouver to Howe Sound in 3 days and 2 nights

Day 1

Depart Granville Island to Port Graves on Gambier Island.  Within just a few hours you will be anchored in this protected bay and enjoying hiking trails from the dinghy dock shortly after.  Are you a fan of crab?  This area offers some of the best opportunities to haul up a pot full of them.

Day 2

Time to explore Gibson’s Landing on Sunshine Coast.  Enjoy a few scenic hours of travel and you’ll soon be tied at the government dock.  The “must do” is lunch at Molly’s Reach, made famous by the classic Canadian TV show Beachcombers, filmed here decades ago.  Followed that up with shopping in local boutiques and then head for one of the mooring buoys in Plumper Cove on Keats Island.  This is a Marine Park and you can dinghy to the park’s dock for a walk on the trails or just relax on the boat while watching others with variety of techniques of catching the mooring buoys.

Day 3

After a morning swim or hike or just sleeping in, it’s time to return to Granville Island.  Don’t forget to stop at the fuel dock under the Burrard Bridge before completing your trip.
