Get on the water in Pender Harbour

Pender Harbour is often called the “Venice of the North”. Our harbour is a complex maze of islands, coves, and reefs, along with substantial on-the-water traffic. The harbour offers a unique and fascinating paddling and boating opportunity.

We offer multiple ways to explore Pender Harbour: by kayak, stand-up paddleboard and powerboat. We rent to both marina and resort guests as well as others who are visiting Garden Bay.

Rentals are available 7 days a week, from May 1st through September 30th, 2021.

Please arrive 20 to 30 minutes early to ensure you are on time for your boat rental. There are forms, waivers and contracts to be filled out by the renter.

Parking is free for kayak, SUP and powerboat rentals less than one day. Special parking arrangements are required for 24 or more-hour rentals. 

Common questions:
What should you bring when boating? 
You’ll want to bring towels, plenty of water, sunscreen and snacks. If you forget anything, John Henry’s General Store has everything you need plus much more!

Can you/anyone drink before hopping behind the wheel of a boat rental? 
No, as it is illegal just as driving a car under the influence. We have absolutely zero tolerance for driving a boat while under the influence of alcohol, cannabis, or any other illicit drugs. Save the party for after you’ve returned your boat and passengers safely to our Marina.

Cancellation Policies

Kayak or SUP Rental Cancellations:
Kayak and SUP rentals require a minimum 72 hours notice of cancellation for no charge. A 25% administrative fee (min $25 per kayak or SUP booked) will be retained for cancellations between 24 and 72 hours of the reservation date. If you cancel less than 24 hours 100% of the total booking is charged.

Long Weekend Booking Cancellations:
Cancellations for long weekend bookings require 5 days notice. If you cancel between 24 hours and less than 5 days notice a 25% administrative fee (minimum $25 per kayak or SUP booked) will be retained for cancellations with less than 5 days of the reservation date. If you cancel less than 24 hours 100% is charged of the total booking is charged.

Please Note:
Our kayak and SUP rental cancellation policy is based on the fact that when we take a booking we are holding our equipment for your use during that time period. Because we have limited equipment that means we are turning away other potential bookings. 

When you wake up on the reservation day there may be a forecast for rain or showers. But, we may end up having a nice day, or a short shower. The Sunshine Coast has much less rain than Vancouver or North or West Vancouver. Forecasts aren’t always right and by canceling you will have actually paid for a rental you decided not to do & then the weather wasn’t as forecasted. Bring the correct gear and come, despite what the forecast says. If conditions are dangerous (our responsibility) we will not let you go out – and you won’t be charged. 

Power Boat Cancellations:
100% refund with over 72 hours notice, subject to a $25.00 administration fee, plus 5% GST. 

50% refund with over between 24 and 72 hours notice

No refund if cancelled within 24 hours of rental or you are a No show.

Weather-related cancellations: Cancellations are not permitted due to overcast or slightly unfavourable conditions. Where weather conditions affect (our call) safe boating conditions, you will receive a 100% refund on your rental.
