Linking and Protecting the BC Coast Together
Driven by a shared love for our coastline
BC Marine Trails is a non-profit organization working together to help secure long term public access to the BC coast.
Our mission is to work with First Nations and stakeholders to build, protect and promote a public network of marine trails allowing recreational navigation of the BC coastline with minimal impact on the environment.
At BCMT we love to share our deep connection to the water, the land, and our marine recreation community.
We are here to guide and inspire you to explore the BC Coast safely, sustainably, and respectfully, through simple, practical resources.
