This location presents an easy launch from Salt Spring Island accessible by ferries from Tsawwassen, and so presents a great way for paddlers from the mainland to enter the Salish Sea Marine Trail in a remarkable section of the Gulf Islands.

Footpath ramp, stairs with handrail lead from near BC Ferry booth to protected mixed beach that floods at high water. SE aspect. Picnic tables at top of ramp. Flush toilets at ferry terminal. Drinking water available at ferry terminal. Useful to have another paddler to assist moving boat down ramp. Very close to ferry making easy access with cart from Tsawwassen, other islands, but ramp itself is not cart-friendly. Regional park on N shore of bay with short hiking trail. Nearby 48 hr parking on Long Harbour Road.
