BC Ferries Vacations wants you to discover BC’s Central Coast and its breathtaking showcase of natural beauty where rugged coastal mountains rise out of the pristine waters of the Inside Passage!
Depart from the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal for a scenic sailing across the Strait of Georgia to Nanaimo, where you’ll drive North to the fishing community of Port Hardy. From there, embark on a picturesque sailing on board BC Ferries’ newest vessel, the Northern Sea Wolf, through a landscape of rugged glacial fjords, towering old-growth rainforests and rich history. Along the way, keep an eye out for wildlife along the shoreline, orcas and porpoises in the channel, and notice the remote First Nations villages tucked into several bays along the route. Upon your arrival in Bella Coola, nestled between a lush valley and the soaring Coast Mountains, discover all that the region has to offer from the majestic wildlife to the living ancient cultures.
Depending on the season, enjoy a thrilling eco-rafting tour or get up close to grizzly bears as they fish for salmon along the Atnarko River. After two nights in Bella Coola, drive along Highway 20 to the Central Coast community of Williams Lake and discover its ranching culture and rich gold rush history. From there, enjoy the drive through rugged mountain wilderness to Whistler where you can take in the picturesque scenery and experience superb restaurants. Reminisce about your six days of discovery and adventure as you drive along the Sea to Sky Highway to the Lower Mainland where your Central Coast Circle Tour concludes
