Travel Information for Nelson BC (BC Trip)
When traveling to Nelson via Creston
You may want to head north to Crawford Bay where you can take a free ride on the Osprey 2000. This ferry trip takes about 45 minutes, so add this to your driving time. Also in busy summer times you may have to wait an extra ferry sailing. Having said this there are beaches to walk, sometimes vendors at the parking area and drinks to purchase, plus it can be a relaxing break in your journey. The scenery is absolutely stupendous and this alone is worth making the trip! Ferry Schedule: Ferry Schedule
