A favorite family outing is Sidney Spit Provincial Park approximately 30 minutes by power boat from Sidney.
There are mooring buoys for your boat and once on shore activities can include hiking the trails, exploring the beach, swimming, or just relaxing.
The Spit is a destination for a day trip or for staying overnight. The children always enjoy the open spaces and exploring. We never tire of visiting the Spit.
No boat of your own? There is a Sidney Spit Ferry for passengers leaving from the foot of Beacon Avenue in Sidney. Taking the ferry is a way to have an on the water experience and travel to a nearby island to explore.
