Quadra Island Travel Guide
Welcome to Quadra Island!
Quadra Island, British Columbia, is the largest of four islands that make up the Discovery Islands. A quick ten-minute ferry ride west on the Discovery Passage from Campbell River, Quadra Island is a visual marvel. The island's intricate shoreline is composed of unchartered caves, inlets, coves and beaches, scenic characteristics of the landscape that double as unsurpassed recreation. Three main villages constitute the island: Cape Mudge, Heriot Bay and Quathiaski Cove, the latter of the three being the most commercially developed. Originally inhabited by the Coast Salish natives, the Discovery Islands (encompassing Cortes Island, Outer Islands and the Inlets, are steeped in history). Evidence of its heritage exists in a number of museums and art galleries scattered about. While on Quadra Island, do as the islanders do and try sea kayaking or diving, experiences rivalled by few places on earth. The surrounding waters also teem with salmon and are ideal fishing grounds. King salmon run in these waters, heading out to sea as small fry, and returning as 30 pound monsters.
