District of North Vancouver Designated Anchorage Area

The District of North Vancouver proposes to install a designated anchorage area in Deep Cove. The District's proposal intends to address concerns over long-term boat anchorage in Deep Cove. The designated anchorage area would allow the District to restrict the number of anchorages, designate specific mooring locations, and limit the amount of time boats could remain anchored in Deep Cove.

The works include installation of four Transport Canada compliant mooring buoys on the south side of Deep Cove. Mooring hardware includes anchor, ground chain, mooring chain, and shackles.


This map is for illustrative purposes. The markers represent the approximate locations based on available data. More than one marker may be identified for a given assessment.
