Other Comments:

Public dock, float managed by Capital Regional District as a Small Craft Harbour. Easy 60 m access from ferry ramp. Wheels recommended. Beach access from ferry parking lot by unlocked gate through low perimeter fence, leading to paved sloped trail or drainage swale that runs to wall just above beach. Step off concrete wall to sandstone and beach approx 1 m high. Feasible to transport small narrow boats to, from beach. For ferry travellers without vehicles public float is more convenient
