Activities Available at this Park

Canoeing
Montague Harbour Marine Provincial Park offers canoeing and kayaking opportunities for more experienced paddlers. Paddlers should be aware of ocean currents and check weather forecasts before heading out. Montague Harbour is both a destination and a starting off point for kayakers wanting to explore the Gulf Islands.

Cycling
Bicycles must keep to roadways and are not permitted on trails. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Fishing
Saltwater/ocean fishing is permitted, subject to closures. A permanent shellfish closure is in effect due to poor water quality within Montague Harbour. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate license.
Rockfish Conservation Areas occur within this park. Fishing activities are limited in Rockfish Conservation Areas. Before you go fishing please refer to the Rockfish Conservation Area descriptions available from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO).

Hiking
There are a variety of well-maintained walking trails in Montague Harbour Provincial Marine Park. Routes lead along Shell Beach and around Gray Peninsula. These easy trails offer spectacular views of the surrounding islands, local marine life and wildlife. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.

Interpretive Programs
Montague Harbour Provincial Marine Park offers scheduled interpretive programs. The Floating Nature House offers interpretation programs through the summer – for details, click here. [PDF]

Pets on Leash
Pets/domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.

Swimming
This park offers ocean swimming opportunities; however the water is very cold. Bring good footwear for the gravel beach. There are no lifeguards on duty at provincial parks.
