Busby Island, Lot 61

Busby Island, Lot 61

Busby Island is located off the southwest tip of Sonora Island across from Quadra Island and is part of the popular Owen Bay area. The property is conveniently located within a reasonably short distance of some of the best areas to explore, experience wildlife encounters and fish that this region has to offer. Owen Bay is a small coastal hamlet with a few full time residents as well as being a popular vacation area for people looking to relax and enjoy this Discovery Islands region.

This 1.23 acre oceanfront property is situated on the eastern shore of Busby Island, directly across from Sonora Island. The property has easy access from the internal road on Busby Island. There is public beach front access in two places to this internal common road. Anchorage is in Owen Bay.

The property is primarily level, sloping gradually to a forested bluff overlooking the oceanfront and the beautiful inside tidal waters of Busby. It then slopes moderately steep down to approx. 349ft of oceanfront, forested right to the ocean’s edge.

The protected waters are good for swimming in the summer. The waters on this side of the island can go almost dry at very low tides and it is possible to walk to and from the Owen Bay road on Sonora Island.

Zoning permits the building of a primary residence as well as a secondary cabin (up to 80 square metres), providing lots of options for building and using this property.

Campbell River is approximately 45 minutes away by boat and provides an excellent centre for supplies and services. During the summer months there is regularly scheduled water taxi service from Campbell River to Owen Bay and Busby Island. Other areas such as Browns Bay on Vancouver Island or Heriot Bay on Quadra Island provide even quicker access through primarily protected waters. 

Busby Island is located across from Quadra Island off the southwest tip of Sonora Island. These islands are part of the Discovery Islands, a group of islands located between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia on the west coast of Canada, which offer an amazing variety of beautiful natural features and outdoor recreation and sport activities such as fishing, boating, diving, and wildlife viewing. Seafood such as crab, prawns, clams and oysters are all available within this region.
