Where are we?
At the transport hub of Vancouver Island -
close to 3 ferries and Victoria's International Airport.

Finding Us By Road:

From Victoria by car: take Hwy 17 ("the Pat Bay Highway") north, heading towards the Swartz Bay Ferry terminal (to Vancouver). About 25 km (16 miles) north of Victoria, just after passing the airport runway on your left, turn right into Sidney. Drive to the bottom of main street (Beacon Avenue) and turn into the last road on the left before the water (next to the new Pier Hotel), called Seaport Place. Look for Mineral World on the waterfront. Lots of available parking.

From Victoria by bus: if you have arrived by Clipper or Blackball Ferry at the Inner Harbour, walk towards the Empress Hotel along Bellville Street. When you are on the same block as the Empress Hotel (opposite the Royal BC Museum) look out for a bus stop. Take any north-bound 30, 31 or 32 bus. Say "I want to go to Sidney via the Royal Oak Exchange." You will get a transfer ticket, so pay just once. At the Royal Oak Exchange, take the 70 to Sidney. Ask the driver to tell you when to get off the bus. Walk down Sidney's main street 5 short blocks to the seaside, and look left. There's Mineral World along the sea walk, with a blue roof.

From the BC Ferry terminal: follow the 17 highway south 5km (3 miles) to Sidney (the first traffic lights). Turn left. Drive to the bottom of main street (Beacon Avenue) and turn into the last road on the left before the water (next to the new Pier Hotel), called Seaport Place. Look for Mineral World on the waterfront. Lots of available parking.
