Fishing Lodge and Lease Tenure, West Cracroft Island, Bones Bay

Fishing Lodge and Lease Tenure, West Cracroft Island, Bones Bay

Tucked into a sheltered location on the northern shoreline of West Cracroft Island, Fishy Pete’s Bones Bay Lodge looks out across Clio Channel to Turnour Island in northern Johnstone Strait. This is a popular fishing and boating area, adjacent to the world-renowned Broughton Archipelago and the numerous large inlets of the south-central BC coast.

The 0.16 hectare (0.39 acre) tenure is in place for commercial use of a fishing lodge, and currently expires in April 2044. An effluent permit is also part of the offering, which allows for the correct collection and disposal of sewage from the lodge.

The water lot lease is 20 metres by 80 metres. Dock and moorage improvements include 5 steel pilings, one of which is a double steel piling, which are all interconnected with cabled-up boom logs mostly decked as walkways. There is also one 3 pile creosoted wood dolphin. A series of break water logs anchored in place complete the improvements.

There are two float houses on the tenure, connected by docks and walkways. The two accommodations are currently run as a floating vacation rental, where clients book and then have self-serve access to the houses and moorage.

The larger accommodation is a 40x40ft one bedroom cabin, with a fully equipped kitchen and 3 piece bathroom with tub. There is no power to this cabin, appliances and hot water are all run with propane. A large deck on the side of this cabin is enhanced with a fold-out sun awning.

The second accommodation is a 25x25ft studio cabin. There is a kitchenette and a separate bathroom with shower.

Infrastructure includes a sewage and effluent disposal system, comprised of a disposal tank and piping from both houses.

This is a share sale for the company “Fishy Pete’s Bones Bay Lodge” which is an active company with a website and booking site.

Zoning on this property is Marine Zone. While this tenure’s use falls outside of the current allowed uses, the zoning does permit non-conforming status for existing marine areas that were in place when the zoning was amended, and Bones Bay has this status. This cannot be used for residential purposes.

From this property there is quick easy access to a vast outdoor playground that offers some of the best fishing, seafood gathering, kayaking, exploring and wildlife viewing on the coast. Some of the most renowned areas this location offers access to are Knight Inlet, (famous for fabulous fishing and grizzly bear watching) less than six miles to the northwest, Johnstone Straits approximately four miles to the southwest and Robson Bight (one of the world’s most popular destinations for watching killer whales) only another 8 miles. 

There is quick boat access directly across Johnstone Strait at the Adam/Eve River log sort that provides logging road access to Highway 19 on Vancouver Island. Kelsey Bay is accessible by paved road on Vancouver Island and it is approximately 18 miles (45 minutes running time) to the east by boat, while Port McNeill is approximately 32 miles to the west. Port McNeill is a good-sized community that offers a variety of supplies as well as convenient and essential services.
