For all areas except Vancouver Island , make your best way to Vancouver BC.

From Vancouver BC, take the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale.  Drive approximately 1.5 hours, easy driving time, to Earl's Cove ferry terminal.  Take the ferry to Saltery Bay. Coming off the ferry follow Highway 101 heading north towards Lund BC, for 51.5 km, turn right at Craig Road and SCA sign.
