Strollable Sechelt
From Dolphin to Porpoise Bay

The name Sechelt means the 'place between two waters' in shíshálh, the local Coast Salish language. This original meaning is epitomized by Sechelt Village, a strollable strip of land between Trail Bay (on the Strait of Georgia) and the sheltered waters of  Porpoise Bay (at the end of Sechelt Inlet). Sechelt Village is quiet – compared with a big city – but a casual stroller can find even quieter routes  'between two waters'.

Below is a walking map for strolling between Dolphin Street and Porpoise Bay by way of  footpaths and the less-busy streets. Click on this map for a larger version.
