The Dock ‘n’ Duck History
2022 marks completion of the massive ferry landing renovation in Balfour; just in time for the 75th anniversary.

In June 1947, three historic events took place on Kootenay Lake:

  • Balfour became home to the new ferry landing Kootenay Lake’s north shore.
  • The Anscomb Ferry came into commission,
  • and the Tillicum Inn (now the Dock ‘n’ Duck) opened for business.

From the Tillicum to the Rainbow Resort to Dockers Pub, over 75 years, the building had many faces. In late 2007, Robin & Reg Goldsbury took possession. The old pub underwent a multi-million dollar transformation adding over 5,000 square feet of executive timberframe to the building.

Check out the Dock ‘n’ Duck for a meal and or an overnight.  It’s conveniently located on the sandy shores of Kootenay Lake and near Ainsworth Hot Springs, Balfour Golf Course and Whitewater Ski Resort and so much more recreational fun.
