As you wait for your ferry, tour the picturesque town of the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, stroll through the First Nations art gallery on Main Street, and then head over to Olive & Anchor for local seafood and BC wine within a Canadian west coast restaurant with a antiqued nautical vibe.
The west coast oysters are guaranteed to be succulent with a glass of white pinot gris wine produced in BC's Okanagan wine country.
If raw oysters aren't your ideal meal by the sea, then there are fresh and crispy fish and chips and baked oysters with a wide variety of toppings such as Alexander—brandy saffron white wine seafood puree with parmesan cream—or the spicy tomato based Oysters Fuego. Other than seafood, there's also the BBQ rib-eye hot dog, warming soups, sweet tooth desires on offer.
Olive & Anchor makes me want to show up for the next ferry a couple of hours early to relax and take in some local grub, before heading out by ferry to one of the many Gulf Island locations.
