Launching your own boat
There is a private boat launch right on Sunset Island Resort. You can drive your boat right on the Island and launch it there. Follow the logging road directions map in the "Getting Here" "By Land" section. Even though this is a well maintained logging road, during some seasons, you may have to go slower than usual.

If you would prefer, you can launch your boat at the Public Boat Launch and cruise out on the lake to Sunset Island Resort. The Public Boat Launch is located just off the Pacific Rim Highway a few miles past the McCoy Lake turn off. See "Map - Sproat Lake areas of interest". Parking rules in this area are unknown at this time, please call us at Sunset Island Resort 250-713-7366 so that we may assist you with additional information. As a suggestion, a member in your party may decide to drive your vehicle to Sunset Island Resort via the logging road after the boat is launched in this area, while others arrive via boat transportation.
