Make sure you go to the right base to load for the tour you have selected. Depending on which tour you have chosen, boarding will take place at one of our two locations:
Egmont for the Princess Louisa Inlet and Skookumchuck Narrows tour schedules.
Sechelt for the Mermaid and Cultural tour schedules.
Estimated drive time of 100 minutes – 80 km (50 miles)
Ferries run regularly; check their schedule for seasonal details. You only pay one way; no charge for the return trip.
On this beautiful coastline you will pass several communities; Upper Gibsons, Roberts Creek, Wilson Creek, Sechelt, and exit signs for Halfmoon Bay, Garden Bay, Madeira Park and Garden Bay. When you get to Ruby Lake, you’re about 10 minutes from the turn-off to Egmont.
It will take longer than you think. Slow down and enjoy the drive.
Estimated drive time of 30 minutes – 31 km (19 miles)
Ferries run regularly; check their schedule for seasonal details. There is no charge for this leg of your trip; you pay on the return.
Wharf Rd intersects the Sunshine Coast Highway at the “main” intersection in Sechelt. If coming from the south (Gibsons or Roberts Creek) turn right at the traffic lights. If coming from the north (Pender Harbour or Halfmoon Bay) carry on straight through the traffic lights.
The municipal dock is 1 km (1/2 mile) down Wharf Ave.
Be careful with parking. Please respect the private parking lots owned by the pub and the hotel.
