Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island named ‘Top Boating Destination in BC

British Columbians have voted and the results are in!

Over the summer, hundreds of recreational boaters across the province cast votes for their favourite boating locations. Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island, was voted as the top location, followed by Desolation Sound, Shuswap Lake, Princess Louisa Inlet, Sunshine Coast, and Gwaii Haanas National Park, Haida Gwaii.

With its tranquil waters and close proximity to the charming seaside hamlet of Ganges, B.C., Ganges Harbour is a popular destination for recreational boaters from all over the Pacific Northwest and the world. One of the most accessible of the Gulf Islands, Ganges is located in the middle of Salt Spring Island and is known for its sheltered waters and laid-back communities.

In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, Boating BC provided a list of 150 boating destinations across British Columbia. The list was narrowed to 10, and boaters voted their top destination on social media.

It’s no surprise why British Columbians and visitors from all around the world are flocking to Ganges Harbour. Every location on our list of finalists is an amazing representation of what British Columbia has to offer in terms of recreational boating, but Ganges Harbour is a special place and top destination for many boaters. We are fortunate in British Columbia to have great boating destinations in every corner of the province.
