Quadra Island, BC


OVERVIEW

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.
