By Foot/Bicycle/Hitch-Hiking:
We are not within walking distance from the Snug Cove Ferry Terminal, so we do recommend bringing a car. If you do not have a car, we have a public bus (we are on the bus route), a taxi service (which only runs on the weekends) and our “lift system” below. If you are planning to bring a bike, please be aware that Bowen Island is very hilly. We also have a “lift system” which is basically our island hitch-hiking system.
