Sit, Relax and Enjoy!
From Campbell River enjoy a scenic 30 minute boat ride to Mansons Landing on Cortes Island. All of our boats have enclosed cabins that can be heated if necessary, or sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Keep a watchful eye, you never know what you may see on these trips! At Mansons Landing, a shuttle from Hollyhock will meet the boat and drive you to the center, about a 5 minute trip. Discovery Launch Water Taxi is in contact with Hollyhock to coordinate their shuttle with boat arrivals, Hollyhock shuttle service is complimentary.

Whenever possible we try to combine trips to Mansons Landing in order to provide the most economical fare to our passengers. After booking a boat we encourage you to post your booking on the Hollyhock "Rideshare" so other guests can see what has been booked and possibly book as well. Just remember all passengers must book their trip with Discovery Launch. Posting information on the ride share board is not a booking.

The cost for a one-way trip to Mansons Landing starts at $245 Canadian for one person and can go down to a minimum of $30 if there are 10 or more people on the boat. We require a credit card number and a contact phone number to make a reservation. No charge is made until day of travel. Twenty-Four (24) hours notice of cancellations and changes to reservations is required or there will be a charge to you.
