Voice of BC's Professional Bed & Breakfast Industry

Quadra Island is just a short 10-minute ferry ride from Campbell River on Vancouver Island. It is the largest of the Discovery Islands, and best known for it’s natural and beautiful scenery and great salmon and sports fishing.  Some of the largest salmon ever caught on the BC Coast was caught in the waters around Quadra. Known as the jewel of the Northern Gulf Islands, whale watching and wildlife tours and kayaking offer panoramic views of the ocean and coastal mountains.  Rebecca Spit Provincial Park is one of the highlights of the Island and is a great place for a picnic. There are also many hiking and biking trails (and bicycle rentals) available to explore this peaceful, rural landscape. There are numerous inland lakes, great for canoeing. Scuba diving around Quadra is also excellent, but diving in Discovery Passage can only be done during slack tide as the currents are very strong. The HMCS Columbia is an artificial reef near Maud Island on the west coast of Quadra. The commercial hub of Quadra Island is Quathiaski Cove. Heriot Bay is the main departure point for the ferry to Cortes Island and the other outer Discovery Islands. Near Granite Bay on the northwest of Quadra Island, there was once a significant gold and copper mine before it petered out. Quadra Island is home to many artists and artisans. During the Quadra Island Studio Tour in June each year you can visit many Quadra galleries and studios and find everything from paintings, pottery, leatherworks, glassblowing, sculpture, jewelry and almost any kind of one of a kind art pieces. From May to September, take in the Saturday Quadra Island Farmers Market. Cape Mudge Lighthouse is well worth a visit. Over 100 years old it is the only BC lighthouse accessible by road and is still staffed and fully operational.
