The Discovery Islands are located between Campbell River, Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia. With snow-capped mountains and deep inlets fed by tumbling glaciers as a backdrop, the scenery to be found in this part of the world is some of the most impressive on the BC coast. These islands and the intricate waterways that weave between them are home to fish farms, fishing and kayak lodges, homesteaders and logging camps. They provide a multitude of adventure and recreation opportunities. Sea kayaking among calm protected channels, with boiling tidal rapids for the more adventurous, hiking, diving, sport fishing, mountain biking and canoe touring are all popular activities catered to by local guiding outfitters and resorts. The temperate climate, spectacular scenery, quiet rural lifestyle and endless recreation opportunities combine to make the Discovery Islands a highly desirable place to live and visit.
