Sailing

Drew Harbour is a popular destination for sailors looking to take refuge from rough waters. The extension of Rebecca Spit into the harbour makes for calm waters and a great place to moor for those reaching Taku from the sea. For experienced guests, we offer access to rental sailboats at our marina.
