Q: What are my transportation options in the area?

A: 20 minutes by air gets you to Vancouver! Fly from the Qualicum Beach Airport to Vancouver (South Terminal) via KD Air or Orca Air; or YVR via Nanaimo or Comox International Airports (served by Air Canada and West Jet), or fly harbour to harbour via Harbour Air or Seair Seaplanes.  By car, BC Ferries from Nanaimo at Departure Bay or Duke Point to Vancouver, then drive by car 30 minutes to Qualicum Beach or take the InterCity Connector #90, with pick up at the Departure Bay Ferry Terminal.
