How to Get To Bodega Ridge, Galiano Island

The most common way to get to Galiano Island is to ferry from Tswawwassen Ferry Terminal (Vancouver) to Sturdies Port (Galiano Island) on the “Gulf Islands Ferry.” The island is beautifully remote, so ferry times are limited. Ferries depart Tswawwassen (Vancouver) at 9:55 am and 3:20 pm on Fridays, and take 55 min. We recommend the earlier ferry to maximize your time on the Island.

Once on Galiano Island, we can help you confirm a taxi ride to the retreat and connect you with other guests to share taxis in advance[Click here for the Ferry Schedule]. Book your ticket in advance, especially if you’re bringing your vehicle.

Transportation is not included with the retreat, but we’re happy to help you plan!
