North Saanich Neighbourhoods – Swartz Bay

by Jodi Baker on November 5, 2014

Swartz Bay is a neighbourhood in the municipality of North Saanich, around 30 kilometres north of Victoria BC.  It is well known as the location of BC Ferries Swartz Bay terminal from which you can sail to Vancouver, Saltspring Island and other Gulf Islands.

As part of the municipality of North Saanich, this relatively sparsely populated neighbourhood enjoys larger than average lot sizes and a decidedly rural, west coast atmosphere.  There are lovely waterfront properties perched on the rocky, treed coastline offering superb views of the southern Gulf Islands.

For those who enjoy boating in the protected waters of the Salish Sea, moorage is available at picturesque Canoe Cove Marina. The nearest commercial centre is Sidney, BC.
