Life at the edge of the Great Bear Rainforest
Quadra Island is the central community of the Discovery Islands, a group of small islands located along the Inside Passage seaway between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia, Canada. Quadra is home to a lively, close-knit community from all walks of life and all parts of the world. The area is blessed with stunning natural beauty, beaches, parks, wildlife and endless adventure-recreation opportunities.
Quathiaski Cove is the main port of arrival for the ferry from Campbell River, and is the commercial and cultural hub of the island. The We Wai Kai band of the indigenous Laichwiltach People, (Kwa' Kwa' Ka' Wa'Kw First Nation) mostly reside at Cape Mudge (Yaculta) village nearby.
Arts, culture, adventure, recreation, scenery and the laid-back island lifestyle are just a few of the reasons people come to live or visit Quadra Island. Whatever your reason we bid you a warm welcome.
If you visit Quadra Island in the summer stop in at the Visitor Information Booth behind the Quadra branch of Coastal Community Credit Union the volunteers there will be happy to help and provide directions to help you find your way around.
