Travel & Accomodation

Getting to Bowen

Driving: Ferries to Bowen Island run generally every hour from Horseshoe Bay Terminal to Snug Cove.  Please note that summer Saturday sailing typically overload.  Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to sailing if you are driving on.  Tunstall Bay Beach Club is a 15 minute drive from Snug Cove.  Roadside parking is limited so try to car pool.

Car-less: Express Buses to Horseshoe Bay run regularly.  If you are parking in Horseshoe Bay to walk on the ferry, plan to arrive early.  It’s a summer Saturday and Horseshoe Bay is very busy!  Passenger ticket sales cut off 10 minutes prior to sailing.  Once you are on Bowen, there is the Bowen Bus Service, or Bowen Land & Sea Taxi to get a cab directly to Tunstall Bay. If you plan to take a taxi, please call ahead and reserve it.
