Rent a self-drive boat or take one of their tours or fishing charters. There's nothing quite like it in the world. Stunning scenery, surrounded by mountains in Howe Sound.

Had a wonderful day out on the Sound today with our captain Eric (I believe was his name). He was very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas as well as the wildlife we encountered which consisted of many species of birds and marine animals. The boat itself was amazingly stable as getting seasick was a minor concern of mine but that... More

Thank-you Maggie M for your review, yesterday afternoon with the sun shinning it sure felt like summer was fast approaching. We have a selection of boats available to rent now and some of our winter boaters have been entertained by eagles catching salmon out of the water, Harbour Porpoises cruising along and the seals are starting to climb out of...

Sewell's offers a pretty good deal on boat rentals and the scenery you see in Howe Sound will blow anything away that you get around Granville Island. Drive the extra distance and get a truely West Coast experience!

If you want to catch some salmon, make sure you book a trip with Mike Speed - one of the most knowledgeable guides out there! If there are fish in the local waters, he will make sure you catch them.

We took a boat for rent and spent 2 hours driving around islands and enjoying sun, ocean, and fresh air. Also you can experience seals quite close. They have their own small island only 10 min from marina.

Being a quadriplegic and not having any upper body strength, I was a bit hesitant to try the Sea Safari. I been skydiving, hot-air ballooning, dune bashing in the desert, and lots more and am always willing to try thrilling excursions. I am so glad I did.
