Getting here

While off the beaten path, it is worth the extra effort to reach our corner of paradise. Spirit of the West Adventures is located on Quadra Island, B.C. Canada, on the Inside Passage between Vancouver Island and the mainland, adjacent to the the city of Campbell River. Your major entry gateways are Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle, and details on travel options from each of these cities are below.

To travel to Quadra you need to go via Vancouver Island. The island is accessed by ferry service or flights from the mainland. If you are driving from Seattle, allow the full day to get to our area. If you are traveling from south of Vancouver take the Tsawwassen–Nanaimo route (closest to Vancouver airport). If you are coming through Vancouver take the Horseshoe Bay–Nanaimo route. Travelers from the USA can also take ferries from Anacortes, Port Angeles and the Seattle area to Victoria on the south end of the island. If you are travelling by car, please note that the ferries can get quite congested during the summer months, so we advise you to get an early start or make a reservation.

Victoria is approximately a 4-hour drive on Highway 19 from Campbell River, and 2 hrs from Nanaimo.
