Park Host Program

In 1986, in response to BC Parks attempt to close Pirates Cove Marine Park, the Council and Maple Bay Yacht Club established a Park Host program to provide assistance to BC Parks in monitoring park activities and assisting boaters during the busy summer season.

Over the years, the program expanded. It now includes 3 BC Marine Parks and 2 Gulf Islands National Marine Parks.

  • Pirates Cove (DeCourcey Island) and Conover Cove (Wallace Island) – Maple Bay YC
  • Gowland Tod Provincial Park (Tod Inlet) – Capital City YC
  • Sandy Island (Baynes Sound) – Comox Valley YC
  • Portland Island (Gulf Islands National Marine Park) – Royal Victoria YC
  • Beaumont Island (Gulf Islands National Marine Park) – Sidney North Saanich YC
