By Ferry

The ferries departs from the foot of Bay Street, at Queens Quay behind the Westin Harbour Castle hotel. Take the Ward’s Island ferry and follow the road straight toward the Island Cafe. When you see the big blue building, you're there! Main door is located on Withrow Street in front of the pebble mosaic.


You can bring a vehicle to the Island with permission of the Ferry service. Please call ahead for rates and restrictions. You may only park on the Island overnight with the express permission of Parks Supervisor Warren Hoselton. Don't plan a tight schedule on the day you're bringing your vehicle over; you may have to queue for several boats.

Vehicles may load in and out of the WIA from the concrete pad located on the north side of Channel Avenue. Vehicles are not permitted in Willow Square. Please do not block the roadways and paths.

Once your equipment is loaded in to the building, please remove your vehicle to the Parks Service Vehicles parking area to the west of the ferry dock on Cibola Avenue.
