West Thurlow Island is part of the Discovery Islands, an archipelago between Vancouver Island and the mainland, whose waters connect the Strait of Georgia with Johnstone Strait and the Queen Charlotte Strait. These islands and the intricate watercourses that weave between them are home to some of the most impressive scenery on the BC coast such as snowcapped mountains and deep inlets fed by tumbling glaciers as a backdrop, calm protected channels and picturesque islets, boiling tidal rapids and historical homestead cabins and communities.

The DiscoveryIslands are considered major gateways to the very popular Desolation Sound region; well known for its waterfalls, secret coves, rock cliffs and tranquil natural beauty with plenty of opportunity for wildlife viewing, including bald eagles and bears.  For the outdoor enthusiast the recreation possibilities here are endless and of an unrivalled quality; it is truly one of the best jumping off points for a variety of outdoor activities including fishing, prawning, kayaking & hiking.  This area enjoys a nice temperate climate and the waters here are warmer than in most other areas on the coast. The breathtaking silence that surrounds these islands is characteristic of the ambience in remote coastal locations.
