A fully floating venue with an expansive dock space and an event hall featuring floor to ceiling glass walls, the mountain and river views cannot be escaped. Amaze your guests with both indoor and outdoor options for your ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.
The UBC Boathouse event philosophy is based on the belief that planning events with us should be a seamless and enjoyable process. To ensure this, one of our values is transparency which means that we are committed to providing all the fees associated with events up front so that no one is surprised at any point in the process.
The UBC Boathouse linen program offers high quality, floor length white table linens and napkins at reduced rates for all wedding and event clients. Our staff take care of ordering all linens for you based off of the floor plan you create with us and we lay all table linens in advance of your rental block start time. Our linen provider, All Occasions Décor, supplies complimentary gold or silver charger plates (max 20) and other special floral and décor discounts for all our clients who choose the UBC Boathouse Linen Program for their event.

“Love UBC Boathouse!”
“Everything about our wedding at the UBC Boathouse was absolutely perfect… from the most stunning scenery of the Fraser River and the mountains, to the very helpful and responsive staff, to the beautiful and well-kept interior. We truly couldn’t have picked a better venue.”
Shilo Hansen, married on 19-May-2018
“Whole Experience was Amazing”
“The Boathouse wasn’t on our radar until I stumbled across a photographers blog; talking about their favourite venues to shoot.
Originally drawn in by the location; we highly recommend because whole experience was amazing. We felt so taken care of by the staff who were all warm, welcoming and organized.”
