Way West Water Taxi LTD
Way West Water Taxi, on Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, has been providing Water Taxi service from Campbell River since 1996. Since day one, we are proud to have logged in excess of 200,000 hours of safe transportation and reliable service to our valued customers.

Our background

Way West Water Taxi (our parent company) has been in operation since 1996 and offers transportation services to many diverse industries including tourism, forestry, aquaculture and more. One of our specialties is our kayak shuttle water taxi service where we transport kayakers to and from the remote Discovery Islands along  British Columbia's West Coast.  Over the years of working hand in hand with the Klahoose First Nations, we had the opportunity to partner with them,  offering this exciting Grizzly Bear Tour in the spectacular land they call home.  From this partnership we formed West Coast Grizzly Bear Tours which has complimented our operations very well.

Way West Water Taxi provides scheduled water taxi & marine transportation services connecting Campbell River to remote areas off the East Coast of North Central Vancouver Island.   Stuart Island, Dent Island, East and West Thurlow Islands, Sonora Island, Bute Inlet, Toba Inlet, Loughborough inlet and many more areas are within our service zone.  These islands are host to many world-renowned attractions such as Sonora Resort, Dent Island Lodge, Nanook Lodge, Shoal Bay Lodge, Desolation Sound Marine park just to name a few.  The area we are so lucky to call home has so much to offer and is truly a beautiful place to experience.  This is the very reason for Way West Water Taxi and West Coast Grizzly Bear tours exists and we would love to help you see it too!
