Travel & Directions – Getting Here

Plan your trip to the Self Realization Sevalight Centre

The Sunshine Coast of BC is a 180 kilometre stretch of shoreline along the Salish Sea, on the Pacific Northwest. Although close to Vancouver, the Sunshine Coast is accessible only by ferry, boat or plane. The area is home to some of the most stunning coastline and secluded beaches, with many hiking and biking trails through beautiful rainforest. This natural beauty, the vibrant art community and the cultural heritage of the local First Nations have made the Sunshine Coast a popular place to visit.

The Self Realization Sevalight Centre is located mid-way between the Earls Cove ferry (to Powell River) and Langdale ferry (to the North Shore & Vancouver)

The drive from the Langdale Ferry terminal up the Sunshine Coast Highway and through the different communities is approximately 45 minutes.

There are a number of ways to get to the Sunshine Coast from the Vancouver International Airport – see below options, or contact us if you need help planning your stay.

Accessible only by air or ferry, the Sunshine Coast feels like an island getaway, although it’s actually a part of the mainland.

BC Ferries has regular scheduled sailings from the Horseshoe Bay Ferry Terminal (West Vancouver) to the Langdale Ferry Terminal (Sunshine Coast). The Ferry is 40 minutes in length and public buses await the ferry and travel to Sechelt, and then onto Halfmoon Bay where the Centre is located.

Please note: ferry charges are one way only to the Sunshine Coast, on departure from either Vancouver or Powell River. There is no charge to leave.

Ferry reservations are recommended, although not required. BC Ferries offers reservations  on up to 50% of the total deck space of each ferry. If you can not get a reservation, arrive well in advance of the sailing to increase your chances of getting on.
