Where can I go boating? What are the BC COVID boating rules? As BC is moving into phase 2, the first recovery phase, we’re all trying to figure out what that means for the boating season.
There have been a number of BC COVID boating rules/messages out that aren’t necessarily aligned. In some cases we’re ask us to stay off the water, while other updates let us know that some of our favorites marine parks are open for day use.
Many marina’s are closed, some gas docks are open, while others are preferring to only service local boats. The good new is if you spend a little time you can find some great information on what boating options you have.
As I’ve been trying to determine what my summer boating season looks like, I’ve collected a number of sites that are helping me figure it out. It is challenging, as things seem to be constantly changing!
The best we can all do is stay informed with the Provincial news on the COVID situation and look at what options we have to use our boats this summer. Stay in Canadian waters while plotting your course, and be prepared for a friendly check-in by the Coast Guard underway.
Whether it’s out at a local anchorage, or enjoying the boat in your slip at your home port, we all will find a way to enjoy our boats this summer. Education yourself on BC COVID boating rules and enjoy your boat!
