Variety Boat for Hope

June 10 2023 @ 9:30 am PDT

Variety’s Boat for Hope is a fun-filled water expedition where children with special needs live out their favourite pirate adventure. And this year, the ever-popular event is celebrating its 25th Anniversary!

The action-packed day begins with over 450 Variety kids and their families boarding boats docked at the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and heading out into False Creek for a one-of-a-kind pirate adventure. Boat for Hope is about more than just a day in the sun. It’s about letting kids be kids and bringing big smiles to their faces, many of whom may have never been out on the water or even on a boat before. And it’s all made possible through the generous support of local skippers, business communities and volunteers.
