We are located on Bowen Island, a short
scenic trip from downtown Vancouver
accessible by air, boat or a 20-minute ferry ride
from Horseshoe Bay, with daily water taxi
access from Granville island, Coal Harbour.
Bowen Island has a long history as a holiday
resort destination. In the early 1900’s holiday
excursionists boarded Union Steamships
bound for the “Happy Isle”. Their days were
spent at picnics, walking the trails of Deep Bay
and Killarney Lake. Taking a dip in the warm
waters of Howe Sound, dancing at the Pavilion
or lounging at one of the 200 cottages owned
by the Union Steamship Company.
Bowen Island is a distinctive meeting place for
any festivity. The Union Steamship Marina
Resort and Doc Morgan’s facilities include a dining room and marine pub with adjoining outdoor patios allowing for a spectacular ocean front views of the North Shore Mountains and Howe Sound. The BBQ patio and sizeable lawn with seaside boardwalk, ocean and mountain views are ideal for your special occasion and activities such as weddings and rehearsal dinners, team building meetings, birthdays and anniversaries, or a special day out.
