Check out this sweet video Dan Gooda Films created of their weekend trip to Hornby Island during the Fall of 2018.
“Situated in the calm protected waters of the Georgia Strait between the mainland and Vancouver Island…” Hornby is a magical spot a number of justgo camper van renters head to.
“Hornby Island is a one hour drive from Nanaimo, and 30 minutes south of Courtenay/Comox. The ferry you catch to get to Hornby Island departs from Buckley Bay, located on central Vancouver Island. (It is recommended that you purchase a BC Ferries experience card to get a substantial discount on fares – ask the ticket collector for details.)
*IMPORTANT: The last ferry connecting to Hornby Island departs Buckley Bay at 6 pm each day, except for Fridays when the last ferry departs at 9:30pm pm, as summarized in the ferry schedule to the right.
Once at the Buckley Bay ferry terminal, you take the ferry to Denman Island, drive across Denman (staying on the main road the whole way to get to the Hornby ferry terminal), and then take another ferry to Hornby Island. With no overloads, it takes about one hour for the total journey.”
“Hornby Island is one of those places you want to tell everyone about and yet at the same time no one. The Salish Sea island, often referred to as Hawaii of the north, has warm waters and sandy beaches that set it apart from neighbouring islands… ‘ – The Star
Hornby Island, like all areas on & around Vancouver Island are awesome to visit year round… with each season offing it’s unique camping experience to our #vanlifeexplorers.

“I had a great time with JustGo. I had been looking for a Westfalia campervan rental for some time and their vans are perfect. They come fully loaded with all the gear needed for an adventure on Vancouver Island. The van was super clean and ran really well. Lisa, the owner, was a great help and was always available for help and advice. My next trip is already booked and I can’t wait!” – Nathan Cain – Vancouver, BCjustgo Google Review
