Getting to Kingfisher and Vancouver Island

resort 2


If you are coming from anywhere off of Vancouver Island, the easiest and fastest option is to fly into Comox. 

Flying into Vancouver means you'll need to rent a car and then take a ferry over. It's a lovely and scenic way to get to the resort, but will add on a number of extra hours to your travel day. 

You can always turn it into a longer trip and spend a couple of extra days in Vancouver, Whistler, or other parts of Vancouver Island such as Tofino or Victoria. 

Airports: 

There are direct flights to Comox (and Nanaimo/Victoria) from Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. 

Comox Airport (YQQ) 

- Closest airport, 20 minutes from Kingfisher. Kingfisher offers transportation to and from the airport for only $15 each way. 


Nanaimo Airport (YCD)

- One hour drive north to Kingfisher. Rent a car or there is limited bus service from Nanaimo to Courtenay. 


Victoria Airport (YYJ)

- 2.5- 3 hour drive north. Limited bus and shuttle service or rent a car. 

 

Ferry: 

From the USA: You can take the Clipper Ferry from downtown Seattle to downtown Victoria (walk-on only, no cars). It's about a 3 hour ferry, beautiful ride through the San Juan islands. Rent a car in Victoria and drive the gorgeous 2.5-3 hours north along the ocean to the Comox Valley, where Kingfisher is located.  


From Vancouver: Two ferry departure options out of Vancouver to Nanaimo: Tsawwassen (south of Vancouver), duration: 2 hours.  Horseshoe Bay (North Vancouver), duration: 1.5 hours. 


You'll need a car to get from Nanaimo to Courtenay, or there are also shuttle buses on a limited schedule.
