In the summer, we are closed on Wednesdays to enjoy some fun with the kids :)

If you need transport on a Wednesday we will email you alternate options to make your adventure possible.

We do reservations through email and answer all in the order received. I check email often, but some days are quite busy. Hang tight - you DO matter to me.

Address: 8690 Hwy 101, Powell River, BC, V8A 0H2



Driving From Vancouver: you take two scenic ferries. You can reserve your vehicle(s) on BC Ferries.

Horseshoe Bay to Langdale, then Earls Cove to Saltery Bay. It takes 4.5 hours to arrive at my shop. You pay once at the first ferry, in either direction.

For example, if you catch the 7:25 am ferry out of Horseshoe Bay (to Langdale), this lines you up with the 10:35 am ferry out of Earls Cove (to Saltery Bay). You will arrive at my shop at noon.

Driving From Vancouver Island: you take one ferry from Comox to Powell River. This is a 1.5 hour ride.

Fly: Pacific Coastal Airlines

Bus: Sunshine Coast Connector brings you here from Vancouver. The Island Link Bus brings you up Vancouver Island to the Comox Ferry.
