Beautiful park to walk through and many people miss the beauty of the trees in the haste to get to the whirlpool and the Rapids. The walk is about an hour or 4km each way. Not too difficult but there are some hills along the way.

It’s a good hour walk to get to this nature point. Go to Roland Pt, turn right at the “t” just before the end of your hike. Interesting natural phenomenon but not sure it’s worth the hike. If your lucky you’ll see kayakers or surfers working the rushing water. Gives what you are seeing more meaning.

Beautiful old growth Forrest on your hike, so it’s gives you a nice feeling of what this area was like 100’s of years ago.

Take advantage of the ice cream bus on the side of the road when you finish

Aim to catch the high tide if possible (there are tide times and heights in the free guides from one of the many tourist information - go for L or XL tides if you can) allowing bit over an hour to hike in with children or if you like taking lots of photos along the way. Take water and plan to go to lovely little cafe at the park entrance on the way in or out - an unexpected highlight of a lovely trip!

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.
