Boundary Bay

Boundary Bay

Boundary Bay is situated on the Pacific coast of North America on the border between the Canadian province of British Columbia and the U.S. state of Washington.

To the north and west, Boundary Bay is bounded by the municipality of Delta. The communities of Beach Grove and Boundary Bay (both situated within Delta) are to the west, while rural East Delta is to the north. Along the eastern shore are Crescent Beach and Ocean Park in the City of Surrey; further south-east, White Rock and the Semiahmoo First Nation's reserve in BC and Blaine in Washington State.

The easternmost section of Boundary Bay, straddling the US/Canada border and adjacent to White Rock and Blaine is know as Semiahmoo Bay; Blaine's Drayton Harbor opens into it. The northern tip of Boundary Bay is known as Mud Bay.

The main rivers flowing into the bay are Nicomekl River and Serpentine River falling into Mud Bay, Little Campbell River falling into Semiahmoo Bay, and California Creek and Dakota Creek falling into Drayton Harbor.s. During migration times the bird count in the bay may exceed 100,000. []

The area is also used for recreational boating and includes park area and beaches. Pollution and industrial activity in the area pose potential threats to wildlife.

Boundary Bay is also the name of a brewery in Bellingham, WA.
