Pick-Up Service – This option is temporarily unavailable until further notice, sorry.
The lodge operates a shuttle van that can pick guests up from any of the bus, train, air and ferry terminals in Nanaimo or Ladysmith. There is a small charge for this service and it must be arranged with our front desk staff at least 24 hours prior to your arrival. We can only offer this service at certain times of the day, so booking your ride ahead of time is very important.
You can bring your boat to the lodge, but anchorage is limited and seasonal. We have a small dock and two mooring buoys but are exposed to the sometimes harsh and unforgiving South-east wind which makes for great views but is no fun for your boat in a storm. We are located exactly at ‘Yellow Point’ on your chart, in Stewart Channel on the east coast of Vancouver Island, or…
