Why

This summer, we had a series of mini celebrations in honour of our February nuptials. Our summer of love tour caps off with a closing ceremony on Saysutshun.

Things to Bring: 

  • To limit waste, we ask that everyone brings their reusable dining ware 

  • In anticipation of summer fire ban, propane fire pits are encouraged

  • Open alcohol is not permitted on docks or in day-use areas so bring your coozies and canteens

  • RACCOONS will eat your food if it's left unattended/unsecured. If you don't have a lockable cooler, limited food caches are available for use

  • There are large open spaces to play and roam - Please feel free to bring games and bikes

Important Things to Note: 

  • No smoking/vaping on docks or in day-use areas so stick to the edibles

  • YES, the island is pet friendly but pets must be kept on leash (except for Panda ;)

  • Pack light and plan to take back what you bring (including dog poop)

  • There are hot showers and washroom facilities in the main hall and outhouses throughout the camp zones

  • No swimming is allowed off the docks but the bays get toasty so don't forget your bathing suit

  • Quiet time is from 11pm to 7am 

  • Once you get there it will be hard to leave but the maximum stay is 14 days.

  • Bring your ID in case the Park Ranger asks for it ;) 

  • No hanging out on the docks, check out the dock etiquette doc

  • If you're bringing floating toys, please use the mooring buoys available and make sure your boat is safely secured to them. Let's protect the sensitive ecological values of the sea bed from dragging anchors. The use of anchors in Mark Bay is not permitted in order to allow for the recovery of subtidal and inter-tidal marine life, and to better prevent boats from washing ashore.
