Whether you prefer a leisurely stroll along the shore, birdwatching in the marshes, or having a picnic in the peaceful surroundings, there’s something for everyone.

The ferry service leaves Sidney ever hour, starting at 9:30 a.m., and costs $35 for adults and $21 for children and seniors—you can also book tickets online.

The spit is a sandy, narrow strip of land that stretches into the sea—a beautiful spot to sunbathe or walk along thousands of metres of beach.

Located on the edge of the Pacific flyway, Sidney Spit’s tidal flats and salt marshes are often overflowing with shorebirds during the bird migrations of spring and fall.
