Watching Ferries Come and Go
Birds fly overhead keeping watch
Horseshoe Bay is a small community at the western end of the North Shore and home of the BC Ferries terminal. This community is perfectly suited to pedestrian traffic. Park your car and walk the few blocks that constitute the main street, choosing a restaurant that suits your taste. Many come to Horseshoe Bay just for the view.
This is the North Shore’s gateway to Howe Sound. It’s here that you can board a ferry if you wish and go as a foot passenger to Bowen Island. The trip each way is short but sweet, and you can disembark and go exploring, or take the next ferry back.
A few of your restaurant options include Troll’s Restaurant, Olive & Anchor and the Boathouse Restaurant.
Throughout the village, you will find many charming shops and eateries. You’ll also find several art galleries and gift shops selling artisan crafts.
