Worth the Wait
Our resort is hidden on a small Gulf Island two ferries away from Vancouver Island. Getting here is a part of the adventure, so be sure to set your clock to island time before departure.
Travel by Car
To reach Hornby by car, you need to take a ferry from Buckley Bay (located about an hour north of Nanaimo) across to Denman Island. Once you are on Denman, you can follow the flow of traffic, driving across the island until you get to the Hornby ferry terminal, then take another short 10-minute ferry ride to Hornby.
Once you are on Hornby, drive straight along Central Road until you hit the only four-way stop on Hornby (right by the Co-op), turn left onto St Johns Point Road and then continue straight onto Ostby Road (keep left once you reach the big tree in the middle of the road). Turn right onto Fowler Road, then look for our sign at the end of our driveway.sEE ferry schedule
Travel by Plane
Visitors from further away can book a flight into the Comox Valley Airport (YQQ) through WestJet, Air Canada or Pacific Coastal Airlines, then either rent a car and drive from there or get a water taxi to meet you at the Comox Harbour for a quick 30-minute trip to Hornby.BOOK WATER TAXI
Travel by Float Plane
If you are traveling from Vancouver, consider hopping on a flight with Gulf Island Seaplanes, who offer direct scheduled dock-to-dock seaplane service from Downtown Vancouver to Shingle Spit on Hornby in the summer months.
Be sure to organize a ride from Shingle Spit to Sea Breeze beforehand since the Hornby Bus doesn’t stop at our resort. Or better yet, organize a rental car through Turo to meet you at the Spit, so you can have your own wheels for the trip!
Travel by Boat
Skip the ferries and book a water taxi to Hornby instead! Hornby Island Ocean Adventures offers fast and fun transportation to Hornby from Vancouver Island and the surrounding Gulf Islands. If you are flying into Comox, the boat can meet you at the harbour and have you at Ford’s Coveon Hornby in half an hour.
Be sure to organize a ride from Ford’s Cove to Sea Breeze beforehand since the Hornby Bus doesn’t stop at our resort. Or better yet, organize a rental car through Turo to meet you at the dock so you can have your own wheels for the trip!
