Due to high levels of bacteria in the water swimming and wading are not recommended at Snug Cove on Bowen Island.
High levels of E. coli bacteria in the water increase risk of gastro-intestinal illness to swimmers. VCH is working to monitor the water quality and remove the swimming advisory once the levels have decreased.
See the latest beach closures and recreational water reports for Coast Garibaldi
for more information.
