Welcome to Blue Vista Resort on Mayne Island
Your Hub for Exploring and Enjoying British Columbia’s Southern Gulf Islands
Nestled in the pristine waters of the Salish Sea, Mayne Island, lies midway between Vancouver and Victoria, two of Canada’s greenest and most exciting cities. Mayne is closer than you think…a relaxing 45 min ferry ride from either Vancouver or Victoria or only a 20 min float plane ride from Vancouver. It is also the transportation hub of the Southern Gulf Islands.
Enjoy Mayne Island
Relax at Blue Vista and settle down for all that Mayne has to offer: quiet walks, spectacular scenery, friendly folk and deer, migratory fish and fowl. Beachcomb on our many hidden coves and beaches in our renowned National Seashore. You are on an island so you should explore our waters with Mayne Inter–island Sea Tours which also offers, wildlife sea tours, inter-island adventure trips, sea taxi and, in season, fishing for that prize salmon or cod with our fishing charters. Try the world class kayaking and snorkeling just offshore.
When you are on Mayne Island, picnic, cycle, BBQ, walk in the rain, lie in the sun, watch the deer and sleep the quiet island sleep in one of Blue Vista Resort’s cozy, clean, affordable, fully equipped self-catering cabins all fully furnished with kitchens, linens, Shaw cable TV and recently upgraded WIFI.
Relax in Comfort at Blue Vista Resort
Our nine fully furnished housekeeping cottages are nestled beneath towering trees and offer year-round clean and affordable comfort. The cabins lie just across a peaceful island lane from the rock-pool filled coastline of Bennett Bay and just a 10 min stroll to the child happy Bennett Bay beach and Gulf Islands National Seashore.
Since the 1960s, family-run Blue Vista Resort has provided year-round visitors a refuge from the busy world. The previous decade saw major upgrades and modernizations to the entire resort. A children’s play centre now complements the sunny picnic, barbeque and lawn areas and the recent upgrades to the cable TV and WIFI ensure a fast broadband connection to the world you thought you had left behind.
We encourage you to view the Blue Vista website further and check out details of our new special packages, our individual cabin features, the rates and reservation policies, our complimentary ferry pick-ups, group bookings, special events and pet policies (only certain cabins are pet-friendly).
We look forward to seeing you on Mayne and showing you what life is really about.
Carmen and Andy Pearson……………your island hosts.
