A perfect spot and experience!
The venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding! The location and space were gorgeous, and the staff were incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. Their preferred vendors were also fantastic, and very much appreciated.Sent on 05/04/2020

A perfect blank canvas to customize your own wedding.
We had a medium sized wedding of 60-80 people and it was the perfect size for everyone to be able to mingle without being cramped. The venue itself is so beautiful, we only needed to decorate minimally for our ceremony and then the water and the sunset was our backdrop. The staff were very responsive and flexible, we had a lot of odd requests that we ran by them when doing the first meeting (ie. rose petal confetti cannons, sparkler send-off, a theatrical sword fight) and they didn't even bat an eye. This venue gives you a lot of flexibility on how you want to customize your wedding, they don't restrict you to a specific catering company or any other vendor.
The venue was very affordable and booking times are flexible. It is easy to get to for guests by transit and has plenty of free parking. Overall, a great venue and I would recommend it to my friends.Sent on 12/11/2019

Naturally beautiful venue
We chose UBC Boathouse because it was an incredibly beautiful venue that didn't require a lot of decor to make it look good. We wanted a simple wedding with beautiful BC as the backdrop. The venue was absolutely perfect and the photos are stunning. On top of that, the vendor was so easy to deal with and super helpful. Setup and takedown with them was a breeze. We did not have to lift a finger.
It is near the airport, so expect planes to fly overhead. It was not an issue and the kids loved it. They who got excited every time a plane went by. :DSent on 16/11/2019

UBC Boathouse is the best!
We loved hosting our reception here! It is such a gorgeous venue with spectacular views. We used both the inside hall and docks, which was such an added bonus. As well, the staff we worked with especially Katie and Amelia were absolutely wonderful. They were very responsive to emails and made organizing everything effortless. I really liked the fact they were able to accommodate so many of our requests. We have worked with other venues in the past for other events and it was always difficult to reach them or they were rigid with so many things but we felt UBC Boathouse really went out of their way to make it an easy and enjoyable day for us. We would definitely recommend the venue to our family and friends (we actually already have!) And if we ever needed to host an event in the future we would definitely love to use this venue again!Sent on 25/09/2019

From the very beginning they were a breeze to work with, very responsive and informative. It was a bit out of our original price range but once we saw it in person we could not have imagined having it anywhere else. The venue itself is absolutely amazing, we had so many compliments from friends and family and were in awe of how beautiful the space was all set-up for our wedding day. All the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. For anyone looking for somewhere near the water that’s a little bit different UBC Boathouse is definitely a big contender!Sent on 17/09/2019

Perfect Venue, Our 1st Choice!
The John M.S. Lecky UBC Boathouse was an amazing venue and it looked beautiful when completely set up. The view was gorgeous and and dock gave us some stunning sunset pictures.
The balcony was a great place for guests to mingle.
Everything went as planned and the staff were so nice and accommodating. It was our number 1 choice and were so happy we booked it. We also had so many comments about how beautiful the venue was from our guests.Sent on 25/09/2019

Perfect West Coast Venue!
UBC Boathouse was the perfect venue for our big day! We ended up needing to go with our plan B set-up due to weather, but they did all of the work, and made it the least stressful process possible. They were an excellent venue, our guests loved the view, and we had a stress-free wedding day! They were perfect for us!Sent on 29/07/2019
