Map of Discovery Islands

Welcome to Discovery Islands!

Situated in the Strait of Georgia, between Campbell River on Vancouver Island and the northern tip of the Sunshine Coast on mainland B.C., the Discovery Islands offer access to what can only be described as some of the most stunning scenery in the world. Known for majestic coastlines and tranquil waters rich in marine life, this region provides a number of recreational opportunities, with ocean kayaking and whale watching being the most popular activities. The Discovery Islands are also rich in Aboriginal history and tradition, which can be explored on an interpretive tour or on an art gallery. Quadra Island is the largest municipality in the region, with nearby Cortes Island coming in second. Other Islands that are part of the Discovery region include Read Island, Maurelle Island, Sonora Island and the Thurlow Islands. The peaceful, unspoiled shores of these outer islands are a little off the beaten path, but well worth the voyage. The Discovery Islands are accessed via ferry from Campbell River.
