B.C. Ferries run regularly between the Lower Mainland (Vancouver) & Vancouver Island and carries cars and passengers. Traveling to Vancouver Island by ferry is an absolute wonderful way to take in all the beautiful scenery our West Coast has to offer.

Follow Northfields to Hwy #19 and go right - North. Follow along until you come to the Petro Canada gas station at North West Bay Road & turn right here. (From here see directions at bottom of page) The travel time on the ferry is 1-l/2 hours followed by a 30 minute drive up island to our B&B at Fairwinds.
If you starting point is south of Vancouver, take the Tsawwassen ferry to Duke Point (Nanaimo). Once off ferry, follow the signs that say Campbell River, Nanaimo staying to your right all the way. This is Hwy # 19. (Hwy 19A is the city route and Hwy # 19 is the by-pass that missess all the lights and traffic through city). Hwy # 19A still gets you here but it is the long way to come.
