  We really enjoyed our mini vacation with BC Ferries. The accommodations were very comfortable and, since we had never been to the Sunshine Coast before, we really enjoyed exploring new places such as Half Moon Bay, Smuggler Trail and Skookumchuk Narrows.   

Carol M.

  The accomodations at the Painted Boat Resort were quite good and very comfortable. The location was convenient, we only had to walk to get to the park and IGA. The staff was quite helpful and friendly.
