Sturdies Bay-drop off

Me again! Just wondering if anyone has ever used the public dock beside the ferry terminal in Sturdies bay (Galiano Island) to drop off or pick up? We have some crew that needs to take a ferry home before we do, and thought it may be a good spot so that we can keep on going. Any prior experience with this would be appreciated. Thanks

If you were doing the one on Orcas, no issues, sorry, no experience on Sturdies bay. I was commuting from the Orcas ferry a few summers ago working on Crane Island, got dropped off there from a 14' boat we used to go from Orcas to Crane many a time, picked up daughter who came out to help from there too.

If the Sturdies bay dock is equal.......go for it!

this worked out well, however, the public dock at sturdies bay is very small and only had about 5 feet of space open, however, there is a dock that is associated w a hotel there that was perfect to tie up to for 15 minutes while dropping off the family. unfortately, the wind was from the SE so added a tricky element to the whole event. the family states that there is a wee bit to do in Sturdies bay while waiting, but not more than about 1-3 hours worth (varying viewpoints....) we took their bags home with us so they were free to roam.

mm: thanks for the info, though if you were there this weekend I wouldn't be too surprised at the lack of space. Come back in a couple of months and I bet you'll have it to yourself!
