I headed out from Ambleside beach to check out some of the navigational markers and buoys and established anchorages of English Bay. I saw the port and starboard lateral buoys for False Creek as well as the West Cardinal buoy off of Stanley park. Check out the Vancouver Port safe boating guide to see a full size map of all of Burrard Inlet including anchorages, shipping lanes, fishing areas, boat launches, and more.
Sometimes it may just appear that the large commercial vessels are just parked wherever they can fit but there is significant controls and organization in place to help keep the Inlet safe for the environment and people.
Please enjoy the short video tour of English Bay!
