Queen of Burnaby

Powell River BC is about 130 kilometres north of Vancouver. We are on the mainland, but it takes two ferries to complete the drive north, and one if you are coming from snow capped Vancouver Island to the west.

The Queen of Burnaby serves on the Comox (Little River) to Powell River run. She makes the crossing four times each day carrying locals and tourists alike.

The last crossing is close to sunset in late spring to early fall. That makes for a very beautiful cruise.

Head on over to Scenic Sunday for more scenic photos from around the world. -- Margy


  1. I love your off the grid stories. I'm happy to be on it, myself! The kids had a blast camping, but are happy to be back in the city!

    We took a short boat cruise yesterday in Kingston. It was fun, except for the dang tourists!!!!
    cheers from landlubber town!

  2. It is indeed a very pleasant trip on that ferry to Powell River. The scenery is gorgeous.

  3. Gorgeous photos Margy. That last one is breathtaking!

  4. Lovely captures. You live in a beautiful part of the world.

  5. A couple of nice catches of the Queen.

  6. Your photos are beautiful especially the sunset...Christine

  7. Jenn - Thanks for the sweet comment. Glad you had some camping fun. It has taken a long time for summer to get here. And I know what you mean about the tourists.

    Thanks everyone for stopping by to comment on my Scenic Sunday post.

    Paul - The first picture of the Queen also has our boat in front. That's a two-fer for me.


  8. Beautiful photos! I have always been very impressed with BC ferry travel. The boats put Wa state ferries to shame.
