Getting there & away
Frequent BC Ferries (250-386-3431, 888-223-3779; www.bcferries.com) services arrive from Campbell River at Quadra’s Quathiaski Cove dock (passenger/vehicle $6.05/14.75, 10 minutes). On the other side of Quadra, ferries leave from Heriot Bay for Whaletown on Cortes Island (passenger/vehicle $7.10/18.05, 45 minutes). Both Quadra and Cortes are fairly large, so it can be challenging to get around without a car. Luckily, many accommodations will pick you up from the ferry.
