In the summer months, Departure Bay Beach is a popular great place to go for an evening stroll or to let the kids play at Kinsman Park. The bay is excellent for swimming, kayaking or just catching some sun. It is also one of the few beaches to have a lifeguard on duty during the summer months, so it is a great place to for a swim. Beach Fishing is also very popular in the late summer as the pink salmon enter the bay you will see plenty of fisherman wetting their lines.
