A short, easy trail leads around the perimeter of the spit. For your own safety and the preservation of the park, obey posted signs and keep to designated trails. Shortcutting trails destroys plant life and soil structure.

There is no designated swimming area at this park. However, swimming at the sandy spit is very popular. Please be aware that there are no lifeguards on duty.

There are paddling, canoeing and kayaking opportunities at this park. Paddlers can set in at the boat launch and enjoy a scenic paddle around the bay.

Ocean fishing is permitted as per provincial and federal fishing regulations. All anglers should check the current regulations issued by Fisheries and Oceans Canada prior to fishing. Anyone fishing or angling in British Columbia must have an appropriate licence.

Pets on leash

Pets and domestic animals must be on a leash at all times and are not allowed in beach areas or park buildings. You are responsible for their behaviour and must dispose of their excrement. Backcountry areas are not suitable for dogs or other pets due to wildlife issues and the potential for problems with bears.


Bicycles must keep to roadways and are not permitted on the trail around the spit. This rule is strictly enforced and is a ticketable offence under the Park Act. Bicycle helmets are mandatory in British Columbia.

Please note that bicycles with electric assist motors (e-bikes) are not allowed on the trails within Rebecca Spit Marine Park. E-bikes are restricted to park roads and areas where motorized use is permitted. The only exception to this policy will be for authorized and identified trail maintenance bikes conducting work on behalf of BC Parks.

There are opportunities for windsurfing at this park.
Scuba diving
The waters around Quadra Island are considered to be excellent for cold water scuba diving. Dive tours can be arranged through commercial companies on Quadra Island, Campbell River and the Comox Valley.
