We're surrounded by some amazing local businesses - get to know them! 

  • Harbour Air Seaplanes:  Flying since 1982, Harbour Air services BC's lower mainland, Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island with 7 year-round bases and a fleet of over 40 seaplanes. Inquire with a friendly agent at the Harbour Air terminal next-door about scenic tours and frequent daily service to downtown Vancouver, South Vancouver (YVR), Pitt Meadows and Whistler (seasonal).  
  • Victoria Harbour Ferry: Founded in 1990 with just two ferry boats, they now operate a fleet of 14 small 12-passenger ferries and two 40-passenger vessels.
