How To Get Here

The Haven is on beautiful Gabriola Island, one of the southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia. Gabriola Island is 20 minutes via BC Ferries from Nanaimo or 20 minutes by float plane from Vancouver.

By float plane (20 minutes) with Gulf Island Seaplanes from Vancouver Airport South Terminal or with Harbour Air from downtown Vancouver.

By BC Ferries from Vancouver area by ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay, Nanaimo, and then by taxi from the Departure Bay ferry terminal to the Gabriola ferry terminal in Nanaimo. Alternatively, you may take the ferry from Tsawwassen to Duke Point, Nanaimo, but the drive from Duke Point to the Gabriola ferry terminal is longer (more expensive taxi fare).

By bus from Victoria (Island Link Bus or Tofino Bus) or Vancouver (Greyhound).

By plane to Nanaimo's Cassidy Airport (YCD), about 20 km south of Nanaimo. From Cassidy Airport a taxi or the shuttle bus can take you to the Gabriola Ferry terminal in downtown Nanaimo.

By car from Victoria (2 hours). 

Getting to the Nanaimo Ferry Terminal

You do not require a car on the island. Pick-up and drop-off shuttle to/from the ferry will be provided (it's a 5-minute drive).
