Every summer, as scores of recreational boaters enjoy the warm waters of Indian arm and the North Shore coastline, North Vancouver RCMP and ICBC get together to educate the public about their obligations as safe and responsible pleasure craft operators. Project Wave provides an opportunity for the public to meet the people who patrol our waterways and rescue those in distress, and to learn about our ongoing efforts to educate the public about safe boating.
