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.

Because of the presence of the ferry terminal, Horseshoe Bay is a control city on the Upper Levels Highway westbound.
