Our background

At Way West Water Taxi, on Northern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, we have been providing water taxi service from Campbell River since 1996. Since our inception, we are proud to have logged in excess of 41,000 hours of safe transportation and reliable service to our valued customers.

Way West Water Taxi offers transportation services to many diverse industries including tourism, forestry and aquaculture. One of our specialties is our kayak shuttle water taxi service, transporting sea kayakers to and from the remote Discovery Islands and British Columbia's West Coast sea kayaking destinations. Looking for a guided tour through the stunning Desolation Sound? Or the remote Octopus Islands Provincial Park? Ask us about fully guided sea kayaking adventure tours.

Our scheduled water taxi & marine transportation services connect Campbell River and North Central Vancouver Island to areas such as Stuart Island, Dent Island, East and West Thurlow Islands and Sonora Island. These islands are host to many world-renowned fishing lodges that are well known for excellent salmon fishing and first class service. Check out our Cruise and Dine Tours to visit many of these remote destinations for a lunch or dinner cruise!!
