Friend of mine works with the Canadian Coast Guard. You cannot anchor, you cannot moor, you cannot come alongside another boat, you cannot touch Canadian soil without going through CBSA. Once your anchor hits the ground even in the water, you are considered “landed”. So sorry to say.

I'd do it for the day. Worst case you had some engine issue you worked on and it's have a nice day thanks officer.

Greetings,
Mr. A. Totally legit IF you have notified Canadian authorities of your engine issue.

As long as no part of you or your boat touch Canadian soil (or something registered to Canada) you are ok.

Your anchor touching the bottom in Canadian waters counts as touching Canada.

Just an observation. The Canada Border Services, although we like to think it is friendly service, I will tell you that if you try to “out think or out reason” custom rules, they have little tolerance - just like US Customs.

Seems to me that you are trying to be the "Philadelphia Lawyer" type, but this (from https://boating.ncf.ca/canadaborder.html ) seems pretty clear to me:
"The captain of a boat arriving in Canada must report to Canadian Border Services Agency immediately upon arrival at designated reporting stations. As a convenience, many marinas are eligible and have instructions posted by the docks with toll-free phone number to call. It is illegal to dock or anchor in Canadian waters before checking in."

It's also illegal to jaywalk.

Chill out. Anchor for the day. Life's too short ... Enjoy.

Ha! My internet noise tolerance is really high, but I still have just a few on ignore -- can count them on the fingers of one hand -- but just a little makes a big difference in my peace and serenity. (Aqua's not on it for that minor post necessarily, I'm just sayin')

Hello, Skipper Obvious here… am I overlooking something ?? Why not just clear customs into Canada? If you don’t want to do that, don’t go and anchor in Canada !

It has already been suggested but I don't think addressed that perhaps he's ineligible to enter Canada.

For those new to this thread, it has already left the OP well behind, as he himself has admitted in his posts at #50 and #55. His issue is vaccine status and his attempt to avoid the obvious interpretation of our law that requires checking in to Customs before anchoring.

This gets confusing when one realizes only one person can get off the boat to check into customs. Come, tie up at the custom'd dock, go ashore to check into customs and one cannot clear customs while anchor and then take the tender to the custom's dock to check in.
I am a long way from Canadian customs and dont intend to drive the boat all the way to Canada.
I dont even know where the custom's dock is located in the Port of Ft Lauderdale or Miami. Historically, we just had to call in. I do know of one owner who was told, 'tie up to your own dock, do not leave your boat until we get to you for inspection. I wonder who he pissed off. LOL

I have forgotten the name of the procedure where one checks into customs one time and they give you a decal with a number, just call in even while moving.

Every thing has changed..... fuel prices have skyrocketed, we have to have a shot record, plus the usual stuff.

Use ARRIVE CAN

It's a simple app and as long as you have your passport, you can cross within minutes by boat, air, or car. Of course, you need to be vaccinated.

OTOH,based on Koliver`s post, injecting vaccine instead should resolve the entire issue.

The above is outdated and incorrect..you need to use the arrive can app AND you need to call into from one of the 86 open reporting sites..there previously were 400 sites from which to call in from. This lack of sites is a major issue covered within other threads..
