Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver
Horseshoe Bay is a West Vancouver community of about 1,000 permanent residents. Situated on the western tip of West Vancouver at the entrance to Howe Sound, the village marks the western end of Highway 1 on the British Columbia mainland, as well as the southern end of the Sea-to-Sky Highway, with Lions Bay just 15 minutes north.
Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal
A major BC Ferries terminal is located here, providing vehicle ferry links to Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, and Bowen Island, a small island in the southern part of Howe Sound. There are currently 3 berths at Horseshoe Bay, making it the third largest BC Ferries terminal, after Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay. In 2005, the Queen of Oak Bay ferry lost control and smashed into a number of private boats at the marina in Horseshoe Bay; no fatalities were reported.
