make your best way to Vancouver BC.
From Vancouver BC, take the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale.
Drive approximately 1.5 hours, easy driving time, to Earl's Cove ferry
terminal. Take the ferry to Saltery Bay. Coming off the ferry follow Highway
101 heading north towards Lund BC, for 51.5 km, turn right at Craig Road
and SCA sign. Continue a short distance
past the parking area to the next entrance on the left.
Note: There are two ferries to get to Powell River
