Buckley Bay

Buckley Bay terminal is located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, and is a 20 minute drive south of Courtenay via Highway 19 or 19A. Sailings from Buckley Bay terminal service Denman Island. Customers travelling to Hornby Island board at Buckley Bay, disembark at Denman Island West terminal, and travel across Denman Island to Gravelly Bay for the sailing to Hornby Island.

Boarding is based on order of arrival at the terminal. Check-in and ticket sales close:

  • 3 minutes prior to the scheduled sailing for foot passengers and vehicles

During peak travel times, ferries servicing Denman Island West to Buckley Bay and Denman Island East (Gravelly Bay) to Hornby Island (Shingle Spit) will enter shuttle mode to accommodate as many customers as possible. When ferries are in shuttle mode the sailing times will be different from the standard schedule.
