Bowen Island Tourism Information

We love Bowen Island and are always happy to share tips about the place!

At English Bay Launch we are proud of what we do because we know that we play a key role in helping people keep their quality of life on Bowen Island while still being able to work in Vancouver. We are also proud to make the various natural and cultural treasures of Bowen Island accessible to tourists from around the world.

Our mini ferry trips are more than just a mode of transportation, they are a tourist attraction offering visitors the chance to see Vancouver, the BC coast and Bowen Island from a unique and more intimate point of view.

Bowen Island is a great place to go if you are into outdoor sports and adventure but also if you are into visual arts and traditional crafts. The island offers a great choice of outdoor activities including trail running, mountain biking, kayaking, ocean-side hiking and even outdoor yoga in the summer. You can also visit the various workshops and studios of the relatively big community of artists living on the island to get one-of-a-kind gifts and souvenirs made in B.C.
