Northern Gulf Islands, BC


OVERVIEW

Get away from it all and visit the sparsely populated and wonderfully quiet Northern Gulf Islands. Relax on remote beaches or sail or scuba dive in crystal-clear waters. 

Each island has its own culture and charms, and all have a relaxed pace, a mild climate, and spectacular coastal views. If you want a peaceful getaway, or an action-packed ocean adventure, there’s a Northern Gulf Island just for you.

Quadra Island

Take a 10-minute ferry ride from Campbell River to visit Quadra Island, part of the Discovery Islands. The scenic, laid-back island is a good place to check out local arts and crafts, spot wildlife, or relax on the beach and watch the ships go by. Plus, with all the natural beauty the island has to offer, if you like the outdoors, there are plenty of water and land activities to get your adrenaline pumping.
