A FRONT-ROW SEAT TO ONE OF THE WHITEWATER WONDERS OF THE WORLD
Hop aboard our craft and experience the raw power and beauty of the world-famous Skookumchuck Narrows. Ride into the heart of the action in the same vessel trusted by the Canadian Coast Guard for a truly one-of-a-kind adventure. Not all touring boats are able to safely get this close to ‘The Skook.’
Why visit Skookumchuck Narrows (Sechelt Rapids)?
The naturally occurring phenomenon is created when up to 200 billion gallons of water is forced through the narrow ocean passageway each day to form one of the fastest tidal currents in the world. At its strongest, Skookumchuck currents can reach 30 km/hr (16 knots) and vary as much as 3 metres (9 ft) on either side. This is rivalled only by Vancouver Island’s Nakwakto Rapids, and Norway’s Saltstraumen. You’re truly experiencing one of the great natural wonders of the world.
