Our day starts with one of the most spectacular of ocean cruises via BC Ferries.
While only a short 35 minute hop to Salt Spring Island from our departure point (Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal) the scenery is world class, truly stunning.
Some-days we're lucky and see whales.

You'll visit a funky brewery where ales are crafted from deep spring waters and organic malts. We have our favourite brews! See below for just one example.

DAY TRIP


Ok, here's just one of our favs...

HEATHER ALE

5% ALC/VOL, 15 IBU. An ancient brew dating back over 4000 years, Heather Ale is most often attributed to the Picts of ancient Scotland, who are said to have drunk Heather Ale for courage before going into battle. Infused with local heather flowers and a sparing amount of hops, our Heather Ale has a mild floral & honey aroma, a slight mead or cider-like character & very light hop notes to produce a crisp finish. A light beer, best paired with fresh & delicate foods such as scallops, prawns, ceviche, goats cheese or fresh fruit. This is the ideal beer for those who prefer a lighter, more delicate brew with very little bitterness.
