Logistics - South Coast British Columbia

I am interested to understand some of the logistics of owning a 30 ft boat on the BC South Coast.

First some background - I don't live in Vancouver, but have in the past and my kids are starting to gravitate to that area (through university etc...). Plans would be to come up each summer for 3-5 weeks and I thought owning a boat and exploring would be a fun way to get into cruising.

Being in Vancouver, of course having a boat there would be preferable - what are the typical marina rates for a 30ft boat? Do most people keep it in the water all year or haul out (it is very unlikely that I would use the boat in the winter).

What about keeping a boat on Vancouver Island or on the Sunshine Coast? Is that easier access to better cruising areas? Note: Much of the cruising would for extended weekend type stuff - say out for 4 days at a time. Are the marina fees comparable to Vancouver?

Also - if out of the city what are the logistics for getting to -from the marina? and provisioning (without a car - as an example). Is this do-able?

thanks for any help you can provide - still in early planning right now but thinking about some options.
