April Point - Water Taxi

My wife and I are staying at April Point on Quadra Island early September. We have booked a whale watching trip and will need to be in Campbell River town by 8.00am. I cannot find any information on the times the free water taxi runs from April Point to Painters Lodge. We intend to leave the car on the mainland as we are only staying 2 nights.

Has anyone any experience of this?

Thanks

I believe April Point and Painters Lodge are owned by the same company and they should be able to arrange this for you.

painterslodge.com/reservations/…

You can email in your question to save the phone costs.

I hope this is more helpful than the previous poster.

Long distance is as cheap as chips and anyway OBMG accepts collect calls-I found this out with 20 seconds of searching.

The April Point/Painters Lodge free water taxi runs back and forth between the two Lodges constantly all day starting at 5:30 AM. When you arrive just chat with them about what time you need to be across and they will sort that out for you.

The water taxi runs every half hour between the 2 hotels. I made this trip yesterday.
