Ekins Point 


Ekins Point is home base for Thunderbird Yacht Club. Located at the secluded north end of Gambier Island, it comprises a pristine protected bay with well-maintained docks and moorage, all surrounded by 17 acres of remote West Coast forest.

Located just 13 nautical miles from Vancouver, Ekins is an easy cruise up Howe Sound  from the Lower Mainland, Squamish or the Sunshine Coast. The property has been owned by the club for 27 years, and offers a true retreat from the city, and yet  is easily accessible. Facilities onshore are quite extensive, including a longhouse for club functions, fresh water, showers, barbecues, fire pit and camp sites, all designed to enhance your cruising experience with family and friends.


Planned events include Spring and Fall Cruises, Sail Past and seasonal work parties. And for those who are looking for quiet times, there is ample opportunity to explore the hiking trails and experience the beauty and nature of Gambier Island.
