  • The largest and most populated (2,700 persons) of the Discovery Islands, Quadra Island is nestled between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia. Quadra Island is a popular destination for visitors from around the world, and is best known for its natural and beautiful wilderness scenery, and its excellent salmon and freshwater sportfishing.

    The mild temperate climate, rural lifestyle, pristine environment, breathtaking coastal scenery, and the friendly people of Quadra all add to the charm of Quadra Island. The diversity of people, professions, lifestyles and pastimes is what makes Quadra Island a truly great place to live or visit.

    Quadra Island has three main communities: Quathiaski Cove, the commercial hub of Quadra and the most populated; Heriot Bay, the picturesque gateway to the Discovery Islands and mainland inlets, and Cape Mudge (Yuculta), home to the home to the We Wai Kai band of the Kwakwak’awakw (Kwagiulth) First Nation. Most of the permanent residents of Quadra live on the southern half of the 35-km-long island.

    Its sheltered coves and inland lakes are home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including black-tailed deer, river otters, harbour seals, sea-lions, cormorants, snowy owls, the great blue heron, and the elusive peregrine falcon.

    The Visitor Information Centre is located next to the Quadra Credit Union in Quathiaski Cove, and is open from mid-June until the Labour Day weekend (the first weekend in September).
