These pages are designed to help you discover the pleasures and amenities of the picturesque Village of Horseshoe Bay,  a colourful port community that is one of Greater Vancouver's favourite destinations.

At Horseshoe Bay the highway ends and ferry travel begins for those heading for Bowen Island, the Sunshine Coast and Nanaimo. And here drivers travelling to the Resort Municipality of Whistler leave the Trans-Canada Highway (known locally as the Upper Levels Highway) and head north on the Sea-to-Sky Highway en route to North America's premier skiing and sports destination. Whistler, together with the City of Vancouver itself, is to be the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Home to about 1,000 residents,  Horseshoe Bay is actually part of a much larger municipality: the District of West Vancouver, one of Canada's wealthiest residential communities.

Horseshoe Bay's waterfront fixtures include a ferry terminal with berths for three large ships of the BC Ferries fleet, a marina, shops, restaurants, pubs, and a restful park and playground at the water's edge.  Recreation in the vicinity is more than abundant: boating, kayaking, scuba diving, whale watching, golf and skiing.

To reach Horseshoe Bay from points south visitors must enter the City of Vancouver first, travel through Stanley Park then make their way across Lions Gate Bridge to West Vancouver, then follow the signs for the ferry terminal.  Visitors from the east need only to stay on Highway 1, the Trans-Canada Highway.

Vancouver is a tourist delight with the oceans and the mountains. There is so much to see and do in this cosmopolitan city. Popular Vancouver attractions on the North Shore include Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge.

Vancouver attracts many American visitors including those from Washington State and Washington State's biggest city Seattle.
