Overview

Bowen Island offers scenic coastal terrain and views of Howe Sound within day-trip distance of Vancouver, BC. Explore the island’s trails, overlooks, and forest with a hiking guide on a full-day tour of Bowen Island that includes hotel pickup and drop-off in Vancouver or Richmond, ferry tickets, snacks, and water.
  • 9-hour hiking tour of Bowen Island
  • Hike around beautiful Killarney Lake
  • Walk to Dorman Point
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Terry tickets included
  • Snacks and water included
Begin with pickup at your centrally-located hotel in Vancouver or Richmond, then travel across the Lions Gate bridge to Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, where you’ll board the scenic ferry to Bowen Island. Take in views into Howe Sound during the 20-minute ferry trip, and watch for wildlife along the way—sea birds, seals, and dolphins are common sights in Howe Sound.

When you reach Snug Harbor, hike into Crippen Regional Park towards Killarney Lake. You’ll hike a total of 7.5-miles throughout the day, following easy to intermediate trails with a total elevation gain of 328 feet (100 mt.).

Walk along the shore of Killarney Lake, passing a waterfall and salmon ladder on the way, weaving through groves of cedar and hemlock trees. Pause for a picnic lunch by the lake (bring your own), then continue back through town to Dorman Point, a 30-minute hike to an overlook with views of Howe Sound, the islands, and North Shore mountains.

Return to the village to visit Main Street shops or get a snack before boarding the return ferry to Horseshoe Bay. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Haley arrived at the hotel ready to take us to Bowen Island well equipped with water bottles, hiking poles and an extra backpack if we needed it. She shared locations of other hiking trails we could choose to take on our own at another time as we drove to meet the ferry.
The island has well marked trails and she pointed out interesting facts as we walked together. Her recommendation of a charming French restaurant was a wonderful place to rest and recharge before the afternoon hike. She showed us where to take photos to highlight the interesting back drops of the area. Haley is a great choice for a tour guide if you are looking for a day of moderate excercise and pleasant surroundings.
