For the enjoyment of yourself and future guests, you must clean up after your pet.

This island is a natural setting that includes wet lands and shrubs which provide nesting for a variety of creatures, and wildlife such as deer roam freely. Your dog must not disturb the wildlife under any circumstances, and must be on a leash at all times.

More About Denman Island, BC, Canada

Denman Island BC - Hornby Island Ferry

View of Hornby Island Ferry

Denman Island is truly West Coast living. This quiet Northern Gulf Island has around 1000 full-time residents and maintains is pleasantly rural character. The majority of Denman is covered with forests of fir, cedar, hemlock, and the beautiful magickal arbutus (madrone).

So wildlife is incorporated into daily life. It is common to come across deer grazing, bald eagles soaring, hawks and owls calling, and bold woodpeckers hammering for their meals.

This also means, take it slow on the roads to avoid accidents!

Along with two rustic lakes, Denman Island offers wonderfully relaxing vistas and beaches that you often have to yourself.

Denman also offers many services ...

  • a choice of places to dine,

  • a grocery store with liquor, gas, and propane,

  • a bakery with wonderful soups and pizza,

  • a bookstore with plenty of spiritual and gardening books and gifts,

  • a video rental spot,

  • a cooperative women-run Craft Shop showcasing many of Denman's renowned artists' and artisans' wares,

  • a hardware store,

  • a small library,

  • a post office,

  • a recycling depot,

  • a museum boasting of local historical items,

  • regular art shows,

  • Saturday morning farmers markets,

  • even East Indian imports!

Denman Island is well-known for both its artists and its gardens...

Many artists have open galleries where you can meet them and see their newest work, in everything from ceramics to glassware, fabric arts to paintings.

And of course there is lots of Island-grown produce in the summer, much of it organic. The Saturday morning markets at the recycling depot are the best place to shop for produce, homemade jams, crafts, and even get a seated massage!

Of course, being a quiet little community, there are some things that you can't get on island. Taxis for one thing.

A bank machine is the biggie... the nearest one is at the Buckley Bay Petro-Can gas station, just before you get on the Denman ferry. So pick up cash there! Or bring your credit cards and debit cards, which most of the stores take.

A tip: This spot routinely has the cheapest price on gasoline around.

Getting To Denman Island

Denman Island BC - Hornby Island Ferry

Denman Island Ferry Coming In To Dock

The ferry to Denman Island leaves from Buckley Bay, which is about an hour and a half north of Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island.

The first ferry off the Island leaves at 6:40 in the morning, and first ferry to the Island leaves Buckley Bay at 7 am.

The last ferry to Denman leaves Buckley Bay at 11 pm, and the last ferry off Denman Island is at 10:40 pm.

Unlike the Vancouver ferries, you only pay getting onto Denman. The return is free.

See Getting Here on for up-to-date information about ferry schedules and rates.

The ferry trip only takes about 10 minutes, and in nice weather it's common to see people out on deck enjoying the trip.

Denman Island BC - Hornby Island Ferry

View from the Ferry

The Denman ferry is scheduled to leave pretty much every hour on the hour, but in the summer rushes it will often shuttle back and forth on no particular schedule to keep up with the traffic. Sometimes helpful, sometimes a bit inconvenient, but it's pretty much the last traffic you'll see, once you get on the island!

And you can take the opportunity to grab a popsicle or snack at the gas station, and pick up some fresh seafood from the Fanny Bay Seafood Shop underneath the gas station store. They not only have fresh and frozen fish and shellfish but take-out items like yummy sushi and seafood chowder.

If you like popcorn, try a bag of the local popcorn from the gas station!

Helpful Tips

Wild Sweet Peas on Denman Island Beach

Denman Island is in a temperate rainforest, which gives it its lush green appeal all year long.

Happily for vacationers, though, it gets most of its rain in the mild winters.

Temperatures on Denman are seldom less than -5 Celsius on the coldest days. We can sometimes get wondrous, heavy snowfalls, and we're free to enjoy them more than most of Canada, because they usually melt off within a few days.

Summers on Denman are sunny and warm, with temperatures usually in the low to mid 20s Celsius. Few days get above 30 degrees, although that seems to be getting more common.

There is a complete fire ban during the summer months on Denman Island, and the dryness of the flora make it very wise to follow the rules completely.

Drinking water is at a premium on most of the Gulf Islands, and Denman is no exception... especially in the dry summer months. Please conserve water as much as you can.

Denman Island offers all the tranquility you crave, and there are many activities to enjoy too.

  • Touring the artists' studios

  • Sampling the fine organic coffees and homemade treats "downtown"

  • Cycling

  • Exploring the island on rented scooters

  • Birdwatching

  • Beachcombing and exploring the tidal pools

  • Sunbathing

  • Swimming in the ocean, or one of the two lakes

  • Kayaking

  • Hiking along forest trails

  • Attending world-class concerts

  • Taking one of the many yoga classes, or even getting private lessons in your B&B (ask us for details)
