I rented a 17' boat from Sewell's. Everything was great, boat was there as reserved. They went over the safety stuff, and general boating instructions, I felt very comfortable. We cruised around for a little over an hour, was a lot of fun. It got a bit choppy at times, but it was easy to see and compensate speed accordingly.... More

It is nice that I am just a short drive from such beautiful scenery. The weather wasn't great for our tour but I think it gave it an authentic BC feeling. Fun and impressive at the same time!

Trip taken on Sunday, April 5,2014 First off, I had the whole boat to myself on this particular lazy and peaceful Sunday afternoon! It was early season for them. The temperature was a crisp 48 degrees Fahrenheit, partly sunny day. A wonderful day to feel the the exhilarating sea breeze across your face! (Note: Do dress warm. Winter hat, gloves... More

A friend from out of town and I were very pleased with our 80km ride zooming through the beautiful waters of Howe Sound. Although I live in the area I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the trip. Great guide, lots of wild life (including a pod of Pacific white-sided dolphins), lovely fall colors, rugged cliffs, multimillion dollar mansions,... More

This was one of the best things we did in Vancouver. We had a shuttle bus pick us up at our hotel and take us to the marina. Once at the marina, we were fitted with wet suits and we were off with about 8 other people on our 2 hour expedition on a motorized raft boat. We saw bald... More

I booked a speedboat from Sewell's for my boyfriend's birthday and had originally planned to go on the Saturday, but by the time we had got there, it was really overcast - we asked if we could come back on the Sunday when the forecast was much better, and they assured us this was no problem at all. So instead... More

This is located just beside BC Ferry Horseshoe Bay terminal. Marina was clean and boat was good condition. The village was very nice to stroll around.

My boyfriend and I got off the ferry from Nanaimo and decided that would rent a boat before making our way to Vancouver. We went to Sewell’s Marina in hopes of getting a boat. Sure enough they had plenty available to choose from. We weren’t long before venturing off and seeing some amazing sights on our 2 hour ride. Sewell’s... More

We were disappointed that we could not go out in front of West Van. The trip around Bowen and other islands takes much longer than you think. The prevailing winds make any trip up Howe Sound a challenge. We did it anyway and the return trip took a long time.
