Description & Services

Come and explore Tancook Island – a treasure just waiting to be discovered in our own backyard. 
We are a unique community where vibrant artistry, a pristine natural environment, and a history rooted deeply in strong fishing traditions intertwine. We invite you to leave your cares on the mainland and take a relaxing hour long ferry ride to visit us – or feel welcome to sail into our protected cove and stay awhile. 
Enjoy hiking, biking, or beach combing for sea glass and shells. Take a walk to our museum where you will discover stories of days gone by – visit Wishing Stones Studio & Gallery and peruse the stunning work of our very own self taught nature photographer – watch chair caning or traditional rug hooking at Popplerock, our co-operative of island artists.
