Every summer since 1999, BC's kids with special needs and their families are treated to a day of pirate-themed adventure on the high seas at Boat for Hope, a fundraiser in support of Variety - the Children’s Charity.

Together the local boating and business community create an unforgettable experience for 450 children, their families and caregivers totalling as many as 1,200 participants.

For the hundreds of kids who participate every year, the day is a fun-filled opportunity to get out on the water with marauding pirates never far away and enjoy a barbeque in the park with outdoor activities, games and entertainment.

Your heart will forever be changed once you attend Boat for Hope!
