Fulford Harbour Ferry Terminal

No vote


Fulford Harbour presents a good opportunity to walk on at Swartz Bay then paddle out of a protected area of Salt Spring Island. Although not closer to most major attractions in the region than a launch from Swartz Bay, it offers the advantage of bypassing heavy ferry traffic associated with Swartz Bay and also offers a slight advantage for reaching northern destinations.Fulford Harbour presents a good opportunity to walk on at Swartz Bay then paddle out of a protected area of Salt Spring Island.
