nightowle Sometimes the customs agents are present on the dock and will come down to your boat after you have checked in with them, so be conscious of how much booze you are bringing in. I'm not sure if the limit is per person or per boat. They will also search for fruits and veg that are on a no entry list to Canada.

Done it twice and it was a breeze both times. The second time the questions were a lot less because they already knew all the intimate details and I only had to say nothing had changed.

monkeymom you have to go to a designated call in center - I am not sure where the best place for you to go would be, I imagine there is a designated area in Victoria & i know there is one in Sidney.
see cut & paste info below from govt of canada website Coming to Canada by Small Aircraft or Recreational Boat


Recreational boats
The master of a recreational boat is the person in charge. As master of the recreational boat, he or she is required to go to a designated telephone reporting marine site and call the telephone reporting centre at 1-888-226-7277. No one except the master may leave the boat until authorization is given by the CBSA.

Note
To find designated telephone reporting marine sites in your area, call 1-888-226-7277.

The master is required to follow these steps:

•give the full name, date of birth and citizenship for every person on the boat;
•give the destination, purpose of trip and length of stay in Canada for each passenger who is a nonresident of Canada;
•give the length of absence for each passenger who is a returning resident of Canada;
•give the passport and visa information of passengers, if applicable;
•make sure all passengers have photo identification and proof of citizenship documents;
•declare all goods being imported, including firearms and weapons;
•report all currency and monetary instruments of a value equal to or greater than CAN$10,000;
•for returning resident of Canada, declare all repairs or modifications made to goods, including the boat, while outside Canada; and
•give true and complete information.
As proof of presentation, the border services officer will give the master a report number for their records. The master must give this number to a border services officer upon request.

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone has any information about Crossing the USA/CA border via Sailboat...

Seems like i need to call them or something before I dock up.. But who do I actually call?

Thanks for any info.

Dave
