Call Capt Miles Arsenault for times and availability. 

I spent the day on Bay to Bay Charters with Miles Arsenault and it was a beautiful day , the three hour tour around the Saanich inlet was breath taking, we even seen some whales on the way.  I would recommend this water taxi to anyone who wants to experience the beautiful waters around Vancouver island or anyone who wants to get to the Airport or Ferry from Mill Bay.  Bay to Bay Charters is the way to go.. Don't drive the Malahat , take "K de K " across the Bay !   

Thanks Miles,  until next time..  Kelly
