Bodega Ridge has been hosting business groups and corporate retreats since opening in the early 1980s. With almost two decades of welcoming industry leaders and their colleagues, our team has gained a reputation for providing extraordinary experiences, seamless organization and personalized service.
Although we are just a quick ferry or floatplane ride from Vancouver, Bodega Ridge could not feel farther away. Accessible by ferry, floatplane or helicopter, our semi-remote setting offers an unparalleled setting for group gatherings, team building and management development. Galiano Island inspires creativity, collaboration and offers your team a place to get to know each other away from distraction. Past clients include UBC, Lululemon, Arc'teryx, Vega and Canada Goose.
Our two large meeting rooms are equipped with a large flatscreen TV and/or projector, whiteboard and flip charts. WIFI is accessible throughout the resort, and the property is one of the few locations on Galiano with good cellular reception.
We have a minimum guest count of 18 and have a total of 28 bedrooms between our two properties. For larger groups we do have other nearby accommodation providers we work with for spillover accommodation. Our meeting room has a capacity for just over 60 guests.
We have over a decade of experience hosting retreats and can offer you personalized and professional service, from assisting you in making travel plans to getting you the perfect A/V set up. Let us help make your business goals come to fruition.

"Jesse and his staff are some of the most professional and welcoming people I have had the pleasure of working with. They were able to address any need, be it food or activity-related, swiftly and thoughtfully; continually exceeding our expectations and doing so in a fun and inclusive manner. After the first stellar experience at Bodega Ridge during our annual staff retreat, I immediately reserved space for the following year in anticipation of what would come. As expected, we were floored with another revitalizing experience. The great times had on Galiano Island will always be represented my wonderful experiences, enabled only through Jesse, his staff and the beautiful landscape and feel of Bodega Ridge."

Round out your retreat with yoga classes, fishing charters, kayaking, mountain biking (we have Rocky Mountain bikes on premises), guided hikes and more. We can make recommendations or handle arrangements. Tenting, seating and tables are available for outdoor functions, as well as the lodge's spacious deck. The majority of activities are non-intimidating and beginner friendly so your whole team can take advantage of sharing the experience and tightening their bonds.
