Finding Bowen Island

Drive or take the bus to Horseshoe Bay, on Vancouver’s North Shore. Then hop on the Bowen Island ferry, with or without your car for a 20-minute ocean ride.

You can also venture from Granville Island or Coal Harbour in Vancouver on a thirty minute water trip. If you're coming to the Lower Mainland via the Vancouver Airport, you'll find the new skytrain line makes it very easy to start your journey.
