A Day in the Life at Centre Bay, Gambier Island, BC

Considered one of the Coast’s “best-kept secrets,” Centre Bay Yacht Station is located at the end of Centre Bay on Gambier Island. Founded in 1962, CBYS is a private outstation and is not affiliated with any yacht club. It is set up as a corporation with shareholders and was established as an affordable, family-friendly place to boat.

CBYS has a rich history, with over 13 acres of wooded forests, walking trails including the Gambier Grind, and its own sandy beach. There is an extensive breakwater system which protects over 250 meters of dock space, complete with fresh running water on each finger.

There is also a covered BBQ area, a fish cleaning station, camping facilities, paddle boards and a seasonal fire pit. All you need are the marshmallows!
