Nanoose Bay, BC V9P 9G5
Directions from the Departure Bay Ferry
As you come off the ferry just keep following ferry traffic. Shortly you'll see a green overhead sign that
points to the right and says "to Parksville, Port Hardy" Keep following to the right and you'll see another sign
which says the same thing. Just follow the ferry traffic (through a normal neighborhood) for a few blocks and after
going up a short hill turn right on 19A (it may not be marked but it's a main road and you really can't go anywhere
else much) and follow the road for several miles through Nanaimo (19A is also called "Island Highway). You'll stay
on this road (passing quite a few box malls and traffic lights) as you travel north through Nanaimo. Eventually,
you'll merge onto the main highway, Hwy 19. (The last store you'll see should be a big SaveOn Foods on the
After a few kilometers, you'll see some billboards along the road on your right. Now is a good time to get in
the right hand lane. A few minutes after that, the speed limit changes from 90 to 60. Now start watching for the
Petrocan service station just round the corner at the bottom of the hill. Turn right at the Petrocan on to
Northwest Bay Road. Follow the road over two sets of railroad tracks and then turn right on to Powder Point Rd.
Follow this road to the four-way stop where Powder Pt. now becomes Fairwinds Drive (you'll see the Fairwinds sign
there). Go straight through and stay on this road for a couple of kilometers (it's very rural) untill you see a
large building (the Fairwinds Center) on your left. Keep going two more blocks and turn left onto Collingwood
Drive. Go one block and turn left onto Cambridge. Drive to the top of the hill and turn right onto
Carmichael. Go one block and turn right onto Carlisle and that's us!! We're the only house on the left.
Directions from the Duke Point Ferry
Exit the ferry area following the traffic and turn north onto the main highway (Highway 1 or 19 - same
thing near Nanaimo). When you come to the Hwy 19 Nanaimo bypass to go to Parksville, take it. After
about 15 minutes or so, you will reach the billboards that are described above.
Directions from the Comox Airport
Travel south on Highway 19 towards Nanaimo. About 5 minutes after you pass the last Parksville exit, you will
pass a service station on your right and then start down a long hill. Towards the bottom of the hill, you will come
to a 60 KPH zone for Nanoose Bay. Turn left at the Petrocan mentioned above and follow those instructions.
