Vancouver Island is a big and beautiful place. The Island stretches 460 kilometers in length and 100 kilometers in width for a total of 32,134 km2 in area. We are surrounded by some of the most pristine and beautiful coastlines in the world, attracting people from across the globe. Our forests are dense and populated by hundreds of thousands of different species, some of which are exclusively ours. A major criticism that Islanders express is that we are limited in means of travelling on, off, and around the Island. A few different methods of travel, such as ferry and float plane are available, but these can sometimes be inflexible and unreliable.
