Lot 3 Discovery Passage, Vancouver Island

Lot 3 Discovery Passage, Vancouver Island

This undeveloped 91 acres is part of the Discovery Passage development and is one of the last remaining acreages in the development now being offered for sale. The properties are located on the east coast of Vancouver Island fronting the waters of Discovery Passage between Browns Bay and Elk Bay just 12 nautical miles north of Campbell River on Vancouver Island.

Lot 3 has approx. 340ft of high bank oceanfront with a significant portion of the property by the oceanfront completely level and cleared. The oceanfront portion of the property is a panhandle, with the balance of the acreage behind the other properties in the development. This upland portion has recently been logged. These areas have or will be replanted.

Access to the property is by water, or by limited access forest service roads from the Elk Bay main to the west or Browns Bay Rd to the east. Some of the acreages have roughed in driveways to view locations and building sites. There are a series of drilled and shallow wells for domestic water. All properties also enjoy the benefit of ocean access by way of easement to a substantial low-bank oceanfront in the large bay fronting Lot D; this will provide easier oceanfront access for some of the high bank properties to a protected location for anchorage and launching small boats and kayaks.

This Discovery Passage location is very appealing as it is a great jump-off point for marine activities such as boating, kayaking and diving as well as a popular and productive region for sportfishing. The acreages are front and centre for enjoying a variety of wildlife such as whales, porpoises, dolphins, deer, bears and elk. A steady flow of marine traffic provides ever-changing views. 

Travelling distance from Campbell River is approximately 56 km via the Elk Bay forest service road and approximately 25.5km via the Browns Bay forest service road. Browns Bay is only 4 nautical miles by water from the property and provides some convenient services such as a boat launch, fuel and a seasonal restaurant. Campbell River, which is approximately an hour away via Hwy 19 and forest service road, is a full service community with all essential supplies and services.

The beautiful community of Campbell River is located on the east coast of central Vancouver Island between Strathcona Park, to the west, and the Discovery Islands, to the east. This is a region rich in natural resources, scenic beauty and an incredible variety of wildlife. One of the four main fishing centers on Vancouver Island, the city is internationally famous for both its ocean and freshwater fishing and the year-round salmon fishing in Discovery Passage is unmatched. Visitors marvel at the array of natural beauty and the variety of outdoor activities this region has to offer. Raw beauty and pristine wilderness less than 4 hours from the booming metropolises of Vancouver or Victoria make Campbell River one of the most desirable destinations in British Columbia.
