Welcome to Delta. With a rich fishing and agricultural history, Delta includes three thriving communities, Tsawwassen, Ladner and North Delta. The three Delta communities are as rich and alive as the name "Delta" implies: rich in soil and water, rich in history and industry and especially rich in people.
Delta encompasses over 364 square kilometres bordered by the Fraser River on the north, the U.S. Border and Boundary Bay on the south, the District of Surrey on the east, and the Strait of Georgia on the west.
Each Delta community is proud of its distinct character and amenities. Above all, people still may find a well-preserved sense of rural living in Delta.
B.C. Ferries run frequent daily service from Tsawwassen terminal in South Delta to Swartz Bay and Nanaimo (Vancouver Island), the Gulf Islands and Prince Rupert.
The area is accessible to rail, water and major highways in all directions, and is roughly 35 minutes from Vancouver and 25 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport. An airport for small planes exists near Boundary Bay in South Delta.
