Amazing Ocean Views (Howe Sound)

Howe Sound

Vancouver's Howe Sound in British Columbia is situated off the Straight of Georgia, between West Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast. At the entrance of Howe Sound, on the very western tip of West Vancouver, lies Horseshoe Bay, home to Sewell's Marina and the heart of opportunities to explore Howe Sound, our Ocean Playground.

The Chief

The Chief

The Chief towers high above the town of Squamish and is a popular hiking destination that offers scenic views of Howe Sound and several mountains in Garibaldi Provincial Park. Hikers can complete all three peaks of the Chief in a day or just choose to do a shorter trip to the South Peak that still offers a spectacular view.

Shannon Falls

Shannon Falls

Dropping from 335 metres (1,105 ft) above it's base, Shannon Falls is an impressive sight rising above Howe Sound. As the 3rd tallest falls in BC, its incredibly easy access make Shannon Falls by far the most popular picnicking spot and visitor attraction in the Sea to Sky Corridor - not to be missed.

The Sea-to-Sky Gondola

Sea-to-Sky Gondola

The Sea-to-Sky Gondola allows tourists to avoid hiking up the mountain, instead transporting them to a point 850 metres above Howe Sound on a route between Shannon Falls and the Stawamus Chief granite cliffs. The tourist attractions also include a café, several hiking and biking trails, an 836-square-metre lodge, viewing platforms and a suspension bridge the length of a football field.

Garibaldi Mountain Provincial Park

Garibaldi Mountain

The provincial park consists of many steep, rugged mountains, many of them capped by glaciers. It includes Mount Garibaldi and other volcanoes related to subduction volcanism in the Garibaldi Volcanic Belt. The park features many dense Douglas Fir, Western Red Cedar and Hemlock forests, as well as alpine meadows and rocky alpine areas. The park reaches its highest peak at Wedge Mountain—2,891 metres (9,485 ft).

Porteau Cove Provincial Park

Situated on the most southerly fjord in North America, Porteau Cove Provincial Park features a view over Howe Sound to the mountains beyond. An old ship has been sunk to provide interest for Scuba divers and to attract marine life. There are special facilities for divers.
