Sonora Island, Lot 3 Owen Bay

Sonora Island, Lot 3 Owen Bay

This acreage is located on the east shore of Owen Bay, which is situated on the southeast end of Sonora Island on Okisolo Channel, just above Hole in the Wall. Owen Bay has a long history; at one point it was a thriving coastal community of about 1200 people and home to a school, church and general store. It has evolved into a quiet, coastal vacation and recreation community with a small complement of full-time residents. There are government dock facilities located in the bay.

The property is beautifully treed with a variety that includes some substantially large fir and cedar, a large amount of alder and some magnificent huge maples. There is good potential for deepwater moorage and availability of fresh water from shared wells. 

This oceanfront acreage offers user-friendly topography with beautiful benches and plateaus where you can enjoy spectacular views, great sunny exposure and total privacy. There are older internal logging roads on the property and a few of these were re-opened several years ago.

Zoning allows for the construction of two cabins. This is ideal for people who would like to consider shared ownership and/or have a secondary guest/rental cabin. 

Located within the heart of the Discovery Island group and surrounded by beautiful natural scenery and an abundance of wildlife, the Sonora Island area offers all types of outdoor recreation and sport activities - fishing, boating, diving, and wildlife viewing, while seafood such as crab, prawns, clams and oysters are all available within minutes of this region. There are also a few marine parks to enjoy within close proximity, including the Octopus Island Group Marine Park which is only minutes away. Access to the property is by boat or float plane only.  Traveling to the property by boat takes a little less than 1 hour from Campbell River and approximately 40 minutes from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. During the summer months there is regular scheduled water taxi service to and from Campbell River.
