Central Coast, DL875 Calvert Island

This 160 acre old homestead property is situated on Calvert Island, approximately ¾ of a mile inland from the head of Safety Cove which is along the eastern shoreline of Calvert Island to the south.

This central coast region boast diverse natural features ranging from rugged coastline to glistening white sandy beaches with numerous waterways, islands and bays throughout the area. It is considered one of the premier sports fishing destinations and is also well known for kayaking and sport diving.

Calvert Island sits off the central coast of BC, about 62 miles north of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island. Open to the Pacific Ocean on the west side and facing the mouth of Rivers Inlet on the south end, the island is 20 miles long and 10 miles across at its widest. Safety Cove has provided shelter and moorage for both commercial boats and pleasure craft for generations. 

Calvert Island is home to the Hakai Institute, a scientific research, teaching and meeting centre. The majority of the island is within Conservancies governed by BC Parks and local First Nations, with just a handful of private properties on the entire island.

This 160 acre property is in an area that had a number of homestead properties Crown granted in the early 1900s, all but three of which have since reverted back to the Crown. There is an old road through Crown land which leads from the head of Safety Cove up the valley to the property. This road has overgrown over the years, however does provide a path for access.

The property is quite diverse in topography and features. The upper portion to the west is high ground providing views to the east over Safety Cove and across Fitz Hugh Sound towards the BC mainland and Rivers Inlet. Some remains of the old homestead can be found, such as fencing and old cedar fenceposts.

The lower portion of the property is part of the valley that leads to Safety Cove and is an extensive wetland. There is lots of freshwater on the property and a good complement of sunny exposure.

A portion of the property was recently helicopter logged along the upper western area. There is remaining standing forest.

There are a few remote fishing lodges in the area, attracting select visitors from around the world to experience the amazing scenery and fishing of the region.

Services and supplies are available in Port Hardy on Vancouver Island located 60 miles to the south or in Shearwater/Bella Bella located 40 miles north as well as at Dawson’s Landing in River’s Inlet, situated about 12 miles to the east.
