Getting to Powell River/Tla'amin Nation
Powell River is a remote community on the Northern Sunshine Coast. Its populous areas are near the eastern shores of the Salish Sea, which is part of the larger Georgia Strait between the Mainland and Vancouver Island. The geographical surroundings of the area are the reason why the community has remained remote, despite its proximity to Vancouver. The region is still heavily dominated by the lush, beautiful nature of the West Coast. 
From K'omoks, take the BC Ferry which departs from the Little River. terminal You will arrive into Powell River. The ferry runs frequently, but be sure to check the BC Ferries website for service notices or changes to the schedule.  Reservations can be made prior to departure. The journey is 17 nautical miles and takes approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
