Juicy tidbits and blogbits about boats
The town of Gibson, with a population of 4,000 is literally minutes away from the city of Vancouver. BC Ferries run regular sails between Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver to the Langdale Terminal in Gibsons. The ferry ride is a pleasant 40 minute ride.
Known as the gateway to the Sunshine Coast, Gibsons is a popular boating destination for sailboat and powerboat owners, and makes a nice weekend staycation. The water is warm during the summer (ranging from 21 degrees to 28 degrees celsius) and is great for swimming.
Canoe and kayak rentals are readily available, and there are good restaurants and quirky specialty stores making shopping fun. A local museum featuring Gibsons’ history provides some cultural entertainment for the history lovers. The quiet little town gives the tourists a feel of escape and wilderness calm. There are plenty of wildlife and sunset at night provides a romantic setting.
