Area Data :

Sansum Narrows
Sansum Narrows separates Vancouver and Salt Spring Island and leads from the west end of Satellite Channel to the south end of Stewart Channel. It is 0.3 miles (0.48 kilometres) wide at its narrowest part. The area offers excellent fishing, kayaking, boating and a great amount of marine life.

Maple Bay
Maple Bay is a picturesque seaside community located in the Cowichan Valley of southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia. A narrow inlet and surrounded by smooth, pebbled beaches, Maple Bay is home to marine activity all year-round.

The sheltered haven of Maple Bay is situated halfway up Sansum Narrows, which separates Vancouver Island from Salt Spring Island, the largest and nearest of the southern Gulf Islands.

Maple Bay is serviced by floatplane, Salt Spring Air and Harbour Air Seaplanes that fly regular scheduled flights several times a day from Maple Bay Marina to Ganges (Ganges Water Aerodrome) on Salt Spring Island and then on to Vancouver (Vancouver International Water Airport/Vancouver International Airport and Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre).

There are three commercial marinas, a public dock, as well as the Maple Bay Yacht Club and the Maple Bay Rowing Club.

Maple Bay Marina is replacing many older boat sheds with new style, fire resistant yacht enclosures, creating one of the safest and most environmentally responsible marinas in British Columbia. Maple Bay Marina has also been recognised with an Eco-Rating of 4 anchors for their Environmental Best Practices by the Georgia Strait Alliance Clean Marine program.
