Sechelt Inlets Marine Provincial Park
Sechelt Inlets Marine Provincial Park provides safe and enjoyable
access to three protected inlets: Sechelt, Narrows and Salmon.
Ideal for kayaking, the inlets allow quiet exploration of a part of the rugged landscape that is typical of Northern Georgia Straight. Steep, forested hills surround the inlets, with many small creeks cascading down hillsides.
This park area is made up of 6 different sites; Halfway Beach, Kunechin Point, Piper Point, Tzoonie Narrows, Thornhill and Skaiakos. Kunechin Point is the site of the former Canadian destroyer Chaudiere Artificial Reef for scuba divers. Skaiakos is an undeveloped site. Sandy beaches provide safe pull-outs for camping, swimming, fishing or scuba diving. Protected anchorages can be found at Kunechin Point and Tzoonie Narrows, and are shown on marine charts.

HMCS Chaudière Ship Wreck Dive Site
HMCS Chaudière was a Restigouche-class destroyer and the second vessel of her class that served in the Royal Canadian Navy and later the Canadian Forces from 1959 to 1974. She was the second Canadian naval unit to bear this name. Following the vessel's decommissioning, the ship was used as a source for spare parts for the other surviving members of her class. In 1991, Chaudière was sold for use as an artificial reef and sunk off the coast of British Columbia just by the Sechelt & Salmon Inlets.
