Went in a weak tide day so we didn’t see a huge spectacle at the narrows, however; it was still a really nice walk and the narrows are beautiful regardless!

Tidal flows happen 4 times daily, pushing millions of liters of sea water in and out of a small narrows in Sechelt Inlet. The whirlpools created by this phenomenon are unbelievable, changing by the minute up until peak flow. Sometimes river kayakers hang out and play in the rapids that form in the narrows.

Local hotels can provide a sheet with the best viewing times during ebb or flood flows. It's about a 4 km walk (2.5 miles) to the first viewing area. The trail has a few rolling hills, but nothing too technical. It's a beautiful walk through the dense BC rainforest and takes about an hour from the parking area to hike in. YOU CANNOT DRIVE TO THE VIEWING SITE.

It's an incredible natural attraction that is accessible to people of all ages, though people with mobility issues should allow more time to reach the site.

This is a relatively easy (2/5) walk through forest to the rapids and whirlpool - 45 minutes to an hour each way. Saturday and Sunday are busy so go somewhere else if you want peace and quiet. And pee before you go. The outhouse at the narrows is filthy, complete with rat.

This is a good walk - approx 4 km from the car park to the whirlpools. Check the tide times for the best time to see them,

The walk through spectacular moss-covered forest is great.

We bought lunch/cookies from the small bakery/cafe just next to the car park. Nice :-)

This is a good walk not too strenuous from the car park to the whirlpools/rapids c 4 km each way. You need to check the tide times for the best time to see them, tide tables are available from various places and online.
