Self-Drive Boat Tour


Sewell's Marina invites your "crew" (staff, company, wedding, group, reunion) to enjoy two and a half hours on Howe Sound on a special fun filled ocean exploration tour. You'll receive a group welcome and orientation, and then we'll give you and your crew (4 passengers per boat) your own boat, fuel, safety and boat operation instruction, safety gear and Discovery Tour Maps, showing points of interest locations in Howe Sound. The rest is up to you! Howe Sound will be yours to explore, with seal rookeries, bird sanctuaries, waterfalls, the famous sea-to-sky highway (from a completely different viewpoint), local islands and marine parks, beautiful homes and cabins, lighthouses and marine restaurants. This is fun, safe, soft adventure self-drive boating experience designed for everyone who loves nature and the outdoors. It's great for company staff and group outings, a significant day of west-coast adventure!

Rain & Weather

Fair weather always helps, but we are always impressed by how much fun that happens regardless of those occasional wet days. The number of cancelled events due to rain at Sewell's is less than one percent of the total number of events that we do. As a general rule our clients rarely cancel, since our boats have rain canopies.

Differences between the Marine Discovery Tour & the Sea Quest

Sea Quest is a friendly competitive game, a scavenger hunt with questions that require marine exploration using Sewell's self-drive boats and provided maps in order to discover answers, with recognition to the winning teams. The Marine Discovery Tour is marine exploration using Sewell's self-drive boats and provided maps in order to visit points of interest that are already revealed on maps, prior to departing the dock.
