ABOUT QUADRA ISLAND

 Located on the west coat of B.C., Quadra Island is one of the most diverse islands on the coast.  A place of exceptional beauty, nestled between Vancouver Island and the west coast of the mainland, it is easily accessible by air, (35 minutes from Seattle, and 25 minutes from Vancouver), or a 3.5 hour drive from Victoria, and a 2.0 hour drive from Nanaimo. 

Visitors and residents alike are drawn to Quadra’s natural beauty.  The second largest of all the Gulf Islands, it is covered with lush rain forests, has more than 20 beautiful lakes, many miles of developed hiking and mountain bike trails, and a shoreline dotted with emerald bays and lagoons where freshwater streams feed the ocean and create beautiful swimming pools at low tides.  A large portion of the Island is protected as parklands, and Strathcona Provincial Park hiking and Mount Washington ski areas are only 45 minutes away.

We share Quadra Island with many varieties of wildlife, sea life and bird life, including the many bald headed eagles, blue herons and kingfishers which nest locally.  Seals, sea lions, whales and dolphins are frequently sighted.
