SUNSHINE COAST GOLF
The oldest course is the 18-hole Sunshine Coast Golf & Country Club in Roberts Creek, beautifully carved from the coastal rain forest that enfolds the course on three sides. The 18-hole Sechelt Golf & Country Club offers lovely views of Sechelt Inlet and the mountains. And to the north, the Pender Harbour Golf Course is a challenging nine-hole course in a beautiful coastal mountain setting.
Explore the Georgia Strait from a comfortable 24-foot pontoon boat that will take you through the protected waterway and mazes of islands that have coined the area as “Venice of the North”. Enjoy 90-minute tours throughout the day and sunset cruises in the evening. These tours are only available seasonally and are also available to reserve for special occasions such as weddings or birthday parties. Please contact the resort at 1-877-296-4593 for more details and information on pricing and availability.
Kayaking & Paddle
At Rockwater Secret Cove Resort, we take sea kayaking to new heights. Rentals of one and two person kayaks are available during the summer months. You will be gliding through the surrounding waters to explore the inlets, bays, and islands of the area and are able to observe both wildlife and marine life from the water.
TEMS SWIYA MUSEUM
Located in the Sechelt Indian Band's central complex beside the Raven's Cry Theatre in Sechelt. A showcase for the Shishalh Nation's lengthy history and diverse culture, the Tems Swiya museum offers a great display of artifacts and art including an extensive basket collection. Visit the Tsain Ko gift shop for authentic native art, jewellery and crafts.
IRIS GRIFFITH INTERPRETIVE
Built in 2005, the 2,500 square foot centre houses a collection of interpretive displays characterizing human interaction with the natural environment from the mountains down to the sea. It is an ideal location to highlight these natural features and offers interpretive facilities on the mountain, wetland and marine habitats and wildlife of the region.
Directly across from Rockwater Secret Cove Resort lie North and South Thormanby Islands. South Thormanby has a wonderful stretch of white sand beach while North Thormanby is the site of the Buccaneer Bay Marine Park and campsite. During low tide, you can walk between the two while exploring tidal pools and a variety of wonderfully colourful marine life. During the summer months, there is a water taxi available to take you right from the resort to these stunning islands.
