Pender Harbour is a small coastal inlet on the Sechelt Peninsula opening into Malaspina Strait. It is approximately 80 km northwest of Vancouver, B.C. and is accessible by boat, highway, and float plane. The inlet is characterized by an outer basin encompassing a number of small islands, bays, and peninsulas. The majority of the local resident population as well as seasonal visitors are concentrated along the shores of this basin. An inner basin beginning at Gunboat Bay is smaller and shallower and supports much less development along its shores. This inner basin terminates in two shallow bays characterized by extensive intertidal flats. Small creeks enter each of these bays. The larger northern bay (Oyster Bay) terminates approximately 5 km inland from Malaspina Strait.
