Comb Bowen's beautiful beaches with a resident seaglass nut!

You will make your own way to Bowen Island, where I reside, and meet at one of my favorite beaches to hunt for beautiful beach treasure, seaglass! Winter is the best time for this, as stormy seas wash up tumbled smooth glass from years past. I'll share my knowledge of seaglass rarity and the best ways to search for it. You may walk away with handfuls, or only one perfect piece, but that one piece will make the hunt worth it!
You will also go home with a one of a kind 5x7 Seaglass Art piece that you can frame, and keep a bit of Bowen with you.
This could be the start of a lifelong collection, or lead to a creative outlet of seaglass crafts and jewelry. This is a wonderful family activity, as long as you don't mind the west coast rain!
If you are not staying on Bowen Island please note that Bowen is a 20 minute ferry ride from the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal in West Vancouver. Ticket purchases are cut off 15 minutes before each sailing. The ferry runs every hour with the exception of a two hr break between 12:30-2pm.
No car? You can take the bus to the ferry and walk on, then take the land taxi to the beach, hitchhike (its encouraged here) or walk (will take about 25m)
Ferry Fares: Adult $10.45 Child $5.25 Car $29.60

I have been collecting seaglass for years and since moving to Bowen Island have become a bit obsessed! I have even started Bowen Seaglass, selling seaglass jewelry and art. I love sharing this passion with friends and family, and find children particularly love this activity. For me nothing quite compares to finding that rare piece of seaglass and researching its origins!

Где вы побываете

We will visit September Morn Beach on Bowen Island, a 20 minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. If this beach is not as easy to access or not producing enough seaglass, we will visit either Cate's Bay or Eaglecliff Beach. These beaches bring untold inspiration for me and have steered me into a new career. I am excited to share this experience with you!

Tara, makes us discover her passion with a smile in a setting immersed in Canadian nature. A breath of fresh air outside the city not far from Vancouver a very pleasant ferry crossing.

This was a great experience but there were some kinks. Bowen Island and the boat to and from it were stunning. Some of the most gorgeous land/seascape I've ever seen. The area is pure magic and collecting sea glass has been a hobby of mine since I was a little kid. Tara was friendly offered nice stories about the sea glass. Bowen Island can be tricky to get to though, if you're new to the area/a tourist. I think that it should be understood that tourists might need more guidance in getting to the area and knowing how the boat system works. I was 8 minutes early for the boat, but they stopped selling tickets 10 minutes before and wouldn't let me on. I had to wait 1 1/2 hours. I would have loved to explore Bowen Island some more but instead, my time was spent sitting at the ferry terminal, which is not how I would like to spend my time on vacation when I only have a few days to explore. I was disappointed I couldn't have more time on mystical Bowen Island and I also missed low tide, which means less sea glass, because of the timing. So, let it be known to get to the boat at least 10 minutes early on the Horseshoe Bay side. Also, people should always be given the option to be picked up from the ferry terminal on the Bowen Island side so they don't have to walk 30 minutes to the beach if they don't have a car. Aside from that, I highly recommend. Get ready to be inspired by the mountains, sea, and beach in one.

didn't expect to come to BC and travel to an island just to pick up sea glass, but I'll say it's really fun and an eye opener. never really noticed anything like this. now I'll always be on the lookout whenever I'm near a beach! Tara was exceptionally nice and accommodating as well! she shared tips and tricks on how to find more and what to look out for as well!

I had a great time with Tara. We had a beautiful fall day on Bowen Island.and Tara was knowledgeable and generous. As we combed the beach she gave me the pieces she found and then we looked at the beautiful art she makes with sea glass. I just might have gotten hooked. Thanks Tara for a great “experience”.

Tara was an amazing host, provided detailed directions to find the location, excellent details about accessibility, and knew the best spots to look to find good glass. Very friendly and easy to chat with, I'm a shy person and this was a huge bonus for me!! :) Highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to get out of the city, take in some beautiful sights, and have fun digging around on the beach.
