DL1821 Kumdis Island, Haida Gwaii

DL1821 Kumdis Island, Haida Gwaii

111 acres near the eastern shore of Kumdis Island, in Masset Inlet. Kumdis Island is just a short boat ride north of Port Clements and sits along the edge of the Masset Inlet. The eastern side shore is separated by a narrow channel known as the Kumdis Slough from the shore of Graham Island.

The acreage sits just inland from the eastern shoreline at the southern end of Kumdis Island, where the channel begins to narrow. There are a number of cottages along the eastern shore of Kumdis Island, where the channel almost runs dry at low tides. Access to the island is by way of walking trail from HWY 16 on Graham Island to the Slough. High water provides good barge or boat access, while at low tide it is possible to simply walk/wade across.

The property benefits from a License of Occupation for a parking area and barge unloading site at the shoreline. There is a roadway from the site to the property just a short distance away. A gravel road has been constructed and bisects the centre of the property, providing good access into the acreage.

There is approximately 7-7,500 cubic metres of merchantable timber on the property, primarily cedar, hemlock, spruce and pine.

Graham Island to the north and Moresby Island to the south are the two largest islands of a group of 1,884 islands in the “Galapagos of the North” archipelago just south of the Alaska panhandle.  A 20-minute ferry ride connects Graham and Moresby Islands.  The islands are relatively isolated, recreation and native culture being the main attractions.  Sport fishing, hiking, camping, kayaking, boating, whale watching, beachcombing and sightseeing are the major recreational activities.  Marine and wildlife diversity of the surrounding waters and forests make it an ecological marvel.  The economy is largely resource-based with logging, commercial fishing, mining, and tourism being the main industries. 

Access to the Queen Charlotte Islands is by ferry from Prince Rupert on the BC mainland, by air from Vancouver to Sandspit and by air from Prince Rupert to Sandspit.  Chartering of private planes or boats is also an option.
