Anchorages on the Sunshine Coast, BC, Canada

Howdi All.
I'm thinking of sailing over to the Sunshine Coast from Vancouver to visit family who are vacationing in Roberts Creek.
I was curious what the closest decent anchorage/docking available to Roberts Creek is. I know about Gibsons which isn't too far
I was wondering what there is around the corner and up the coast a bit
I sail a tiny pocker cruiser . A full keel double-ended Danica 16 with a relatively shallow draft of 28"
Thanks

Nice little anchorage in Sechelt, at Selma park , behind the breakwater, just east of the gravel conveyor. As close as you will get to Roberts creek. Excellent bus service there, til late at nite.

Yeah, no. The marine basin in Selma Park belongs to the Sechalt Band and is private. You cannot tie up to the dock nor anchor as it's too small. You can only Bahamian to the inside of the breakwater and there's 12-15' tides there, so an anchor watch is required. This is an emergency ONLY marina. You just might find your boat adrift or missing bits as the Indians don't like to share in that part of the world. I lived less than 1/4 mile from there and had a mooring ball at my place. I'd sometimes go there in a nor'wester and the band always gave me a hard time if they saw my boat there and I was on good terms with them. Gibson's is your best bet, but there's Garden Bay or Pender Harbor for commercial marina, but I like Smugglers Cove.

I've had no problem getting along with the Sechelt band, great people. They just don't like boats left there full time.
