Savary Island

WELCOME

TRAVEL info

GETTING   (T)HERE

Savary wharf has had substantial improvements.

The wood breakwater was removed, and a new metal one installed further out,

this allows for a longer ramp ( gentler slope),  and the extension of the float, to deeper water.

The wharf shed has been moved to open up access to the deck, and improves the view looking toward the Savary beach.
