Denman Island

Denman Island, and its close neighbor Hornby Island, offer the tranquility that is synonymous with the Islands, and the adventure BC is famous for. 

Denman & Hornby Islands have the highest number of artists per capita in Canada, and the best place to view the islands’ talent is the Art Gallery and Museum in Denman Village. Watercolours, acrylics, pottery, and so much more are available for viewing. Purchase a piece that will forever remind you of your BC holiday! 

If you want to try something a little more adventurous, then head out on two wheels. Bring your own bike, or rent one on the islands and explore all that is offered. Attach a basket to the front of the bicycle, fill it with fresh bread, cheese, and wine, and you have a perfect picnic. More and more people are realizing the potential Hornby Island has for mountain biking, and it has become a popular sport. The centre of Hornby has a network of trails based on old logging trails and fire access roads. It just doesn’t’ get any better than this! 

Denman Island is reached by ferry from Vancouver Island or the mainland. On Vancouver Island, ferries leave from Buckley Bay, 20 km (12 miles) south of Courtenay. Ferries from the mainland depart from Powell River to Comox, approximately 5 km west of Courtenay. Ferries leave from Denman Island and make the 10-minute voyage to Hornby Island.
