Hello, My name is Doug Moore and I am the new owner operator of Della Falls Water Taxi.
I would like to start with thanks to the previous owner, Ben Potter, for all of his guidance and help and the many dinner discussions during this transition.
My partner Chris and myself will be sharing driving duties in 2017 and our goal is to maintain the safe, reliable service that Ben has provided over the last number of years. Ben has also graciously offered to help with his boat for extra trips if needed. Thank You Ben!!

on Great Central Lake
|Pickup at Trailhead|
We have the boat moored at the marina in Great Central RV Park and Marina.
The address is 11000 Central Lake Road. Head west out of Port Alberni on Highway #4 and after about 12 km turn right onto Central Lake Road. Go another 8km and pass through the buildings and tanks that belong to the fish hatchery. About 100 meters further you will come to a T intersection where the pavement ends and the entrance to the resort is straight ahead. There is no parking inside the resort so once you reach the T intersection and see the entrance sign, turn around and park against the chain link fence. It's just a 2 min walk from there to the boat in the marina.
If you do not intend to hike the trail but would love to get on the lake for a sightseeing tour this may be possible with time permitting or if there is seating available on one of our regular trips. Again, please contact us to inquire about this or to make these arrangements
