Getting out on the water is an excellent way to explore the park. The boat launch is located at the north end of the Astotin Lake. Water levels fluctuate from year to year, making shallow sail boats the ideal choice. When sailing on Astotin Lake, remember that rescue services and medical assistance may take time to reach you in case of an emergency. Ensure that you have the level of training and experience necessary to take responsibility for your safety.
Motorized boats are not permitted on Astotin Lake;

  • Inspect your boat and safety equipment
  • Monitor the weather when planning your trip and throughout the day
  • Leave your sail plan and emergency contact information with a family member or friend
  • Impaired boating, like impaired driving, is a criminal offence
