Just steps away from endless activity and adventure

Ladysmith, originally Oyster Harbour is a town located on the 49th parallel north on the east coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. 


The unique landscape provides numerous activities to do, such as hiking, kayaking, and boating in breathtaking locations. Roberts Memorial Provincial Park, Heart Lake, Christie Falls, Stocking Creek Water Fall, and Holland Creek, to name just a few.

Ladysmith's historic First Avenue has been named the best street in the country by the Canadian Institute of Planners. A vast array of shops line the street, making it a delightful walk through town to pick up your souvenirs.


Just east of the downtown core, across the Trans Canada Highway, is Transfer Beach. It is so named because it was originally the location of a dock that facilitated the “transfer” of coal to Vancouver.  It boasts the largest open-air Amphitheatre on Vancouver Island with concerts held every July and August. The scenic park features swimming areas, beaches, and picnic tables.

There are several local farm stands to visit if you choose to pick up some fresh local organic produce.

 Closed for the season!  See you next year! 
Take a local sunset boat cruise, and capture the beauty. 

Offering unforgettable memories, the Trails End Beach House puts guests steps away from a breathtaking sunset boat cruise around the Burleith Arm in Beautiful Ladysmith, British Columbia.  

The hour-long tour disembarks from Fisherman's wharf. During the cruise, passengers can enjoy breathtaking views as the captain chauffeurs them around the harbor in a pontoon boat.

The tour stops by Bute Island Public Park before passengers get to take in the beauty of Transfer Beach. Further up are the shallowest areas where the tour passes the Limberis oyster farm all as the sun sets on the northwest end of the bay.

Pickup and drop-off are at Ladysmith’s Fisherman's wharf & boat launch located at 837 Ludlow Rd in Ladysmith.


Cruises run several times nightly, rain or shine, so dress accordingly.  

Brochures, coupons on the sunset boat cruise, and other activities are available at the office upon check-in.
