Coming from the Mainland:


If you're driving from the mainland your best route is to take the Horseshoe Bay ferry to Nanaimo. From there you will take the absolutely stunning scenic route up the North Island Highway to Port McNeill, which takes just under 4 hours if you drive straight through. Malcolm Island is only a short 25 minute ferry ride from there, and you only pay one way!

As you approach the Island, you will see our hotel on the left and the heritage boat houses on the right which makes for some great photography with a unique perspective from the water!
