Smuggler Cove Marine Provincial Park is located south of Secret Cove on the Sechelt Peninsula of British Columbia's Sunshine Coast near the community of Halfmoon Bay, BC, Canada. The 185 hectare (457 acre) park is home to beavers (there is an actual beaver dam in the park), birds, and deer.

As this Sunshine Coast park is accessed by both water and land it draws many boaters and sightseers every year to the protected cove. A great place for hiking, swimming, kayaking and picnicking.

Many come to explore the many bays of the area, rock cliffs and beach areas. The marine park is considered a wetland park so there are some very sensitive ecological areas along the path designed to protect the eco system. Please stay on walking paths and have dogs leashed.

Smuggler Cove is an all-weather anchorage with three large anchoring basins for cruising boats. The best entry to the park by boat is through Welcome Passage at low tide when reef and rock projections are visible. The local area has provided many eye bolts located along the shoreline to accommodate stern pins.
