Shuswap Lake remains a top boating destination

We’re not number one, but Shuswap Lake remains one of B.C.’s top boating destinations.

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 and then Shuswap Lake.

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.

“Every location on our list 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,” says Don Prittie, President of Boating BC.

Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island topped the pols with 24.2 per cent of the votes, while Shuswap Lake garnered 18.4 per cent.
