Grey Rocks

Grey Rocks Island is a safe bet for a windy day. On most days you will paddle into the wind to reach Grey Rocks, making for an easier trip home.

If it is not too busy or windy, cross over to the east side of the Arm to Boulder Island or Belcarra Park.

Please keep in mind that Grey Rocks, Boulder, and Hamber Island are private islands.

Please do not land your kayaks, canoes, or paddle boards on any of these islands. Rather land at one of the nearby beaches at Strathcona or Belcarra Park.
