"Off to Hornby where our Spirit Soars, our Waves Crash, and our Forests are safe at home."

If you are traveling to Vancouver Island via Automobile or Aircraft, two routes await you.

We recommend flying WestJet into Comox or Victoria Airports for a fun filled
adventure and then cruising up Vancouver Islands beautiful coast on Highway
#19 to the Buckley Bay Exit.

We also recommend sailing BC Ferries from Horseshoe Bay or Powell River to
Vancouver Island and taking a spectacular scenic road trip North or South on
Highway #19 to the Buckley Bay exit.



"Welcome to Vancouver Island."

Whether you are traveling WestJet or BC Ferries into Comox you will head
Southbound on Highway #19 for an approximated time of one & a half hours to
turn left at the Buckley Bay exit.

If your route of travel is WestJet into Victoria, or BC Ferries into Nanaimo you will head Northbound on Super Highway #19. Approximated time of traveling from Victoria to the Buckley Bay exit is 3 hours. From Nanaimo expected travel time is one & a half hours.

"Take a deep breath of the crisp, oceanic climate."

Once you've reached the Buckley Bay exit drive down to the waters edge to Denman and Hornby Islands' BC Ferries. Both of these ferries are only 15 minute sailings and offer enjoyable scenic views of the gulf islands. The first ferry you will be boarding sails directly to Denman Island.

"Lush, green vegetation surrounds peaceful living."

Once you dock on Denman Island, you will proceed directly up the hill. Cruise along Denman Rd. that winds seaside. Peer out thru the Arbutus Trees across the glistening ocean to the green elevations of Hornby. You will pass artisan cottages and lush cathedrals of character trees, until you reach the Hornby Island BC Ferry crossing. Just one more voyage across the beautiful blue waters and you've reached Hornby Island. Keep your eyes open for eagles flying above and sea life trailing the ferry.


"Home sweet Hornby"

Now only 10 minutes ahead to the comfort of Saltwater Surround Sounds Retreat. Drive straight on Central Rd. and enjoy the coastal cruise. Spectacular arbutus trees line the side of the road along your route. Follow Central Rd. until you come to a 4-WAY stop at the Co-Op General Store. Turn right and go approx. 3 KM to Sandpiper Drive; turn left on Sandpiper Drive, and then a left on Depape Rd. Here you will see how close you are to Sandpiper Beach ! Along Depape Rd. take the second road on your left hand which is Reicken Rd. This is your destination! 5315 Saltwater Surround Sounds is on your right hand side, just a stroll off the ocean.
