Green Inlet Marine Provincial Park

About This Park

Green Inlet Marine Provincial Park

Green Inlet Marine Park offers a sheltered all-weather anchorage set in a scenic fiord. The park encompasses the sheltered all-weather anchorage of Horsefly Cove and surrounding water. Nearby, but outside the park, is the tidal lagoon of Green Inlet with the reversing rapids at Baffle Point (unnavigable). There are no facilities provided at this marine park.

Park Size: 18 hectares of marine area and 19 hectares of land area.

Stay Safe:

  • Lots of chain or rope is required for safe anchorage.
  • Note that the entire North Coast area is closed to bivalve harvest (i.e. clams and mussels), due to red tide and the possibility of paralytic shellfish poisoning.
  • Bring your own drinking water as potable waer is not available in the park.
  • Campfires are not permitted.
  • There are no developed trails in the park.
