Your boating adventure begins at the Lakeside Park Watersports Centre on beautiful Alta Lake. Of the five freshwater lakes in Whistler, Alta Lake is the most popular for boating recreation. Take advantage of Backroads’ free parking at the lake. Once there, you’ll be fitted with lifejackets and paddles prior to your departure. In addition to the Watersports Centre, Lakeside Park offers barbecue stands, children’s play areas and public washrooms, plus docks for swimming and sunbathing.
You may want to bring a light snack, however our concession stand does sell ice cream, novelties and other snacks. It’s also a good idea to bring a warm sweater or light jacket, as mountain weather changes quickly. Backroads Whistler operates in rain or shine, and provides complimentary warm clothing and rain gear. Don’t forget to bring your camera, so you have lots of pictures from your boating adventure.
All boat rentals include life jackets and paddles.
Families with young children should ask about our Flexible Clock Policy.
