Come enjoy the beautiful view!


We provide catering services upon request. The Laughing Oyster can be booked for your special events. 



Okeover Inlet is quickly becoming one of the premier destinations in Desolation Sound. Don't be surprised to see many sail and power yachts cruising up to the nearby wharf during the spring, summer and fall seasons. Mariners are always welcome at the Laughing Oyster (being sailors ourselves), and we're always happy to share our inside knowledge on the best anchor spots in Desolation Sound. If you are cruising Desolation Sound, be sure to make a side trip down Okeover Inlet and visit us.



Good anchoring ground on the north side of the wharf is available, but winds in Okeover Inlet can pick up during spring and fall, so take care! As an alternative, you can always try to find a spot on the government dock.

Kayakers are also a major part of the traffic in Okeover, if not the largest part! Don't worry about what state of appearance you're in - kayakers returning from their journey through Desolation Sound are always welcome! The Laughing Oyster is the start and finish to many kayak trips, and we hope to carry on this tradition for years to come.

Of course, there is a great deal more accommodation in Okeover Inlet than just aboard ship. For those enjoying a camping tour of the Sunshine Coast, the Okeover Inlet Provincial Park campground just a five minutes walk north from the Laughing Oyster Restaurant.

To the south, there is the beautiful Desolation Resort. Composed of individually designed timber frame log houses, this unique resort boasts many outstanding facilities.

If you are looking for a beautiful place to enjoy a fantastic meal with an incredible view, the Laughing Oyster Restaurant in Okeover Arm is the spot! Please click here to view a map to our establishment. We look forward to your arrival!
