The Quadra Centre for Coastal Dialogue has two physical locations for in-person and mixed in-person/virtual meetings:

The first is a meeting-only facility, centrally located in the Historic District of downtown Victoria BC, close to all amenities.

The second location is at the north end of the Salish Sea on Quadra Island, in a beautiful rural setting deep in the forest with waterfront views of the Coastal Mountains. It is designed for in-person meetings and workshops, with accommodation and small kitchens available. 

Once you have decided which location best suits your meeting needs and the booking is confirmed, we want to do our utmost to make sure traveling to the location is a smooth, simple  experience. Listed below are the many travel options with links to the websites. 

For group travel, to minimize problems and simplify logistics, you may wish to consider chartering a flight if you are traveling by air, or renting a van if coming by land or on the ferry.
