Quadra Island is home to a lively close-knit community of 2,700 people from all walks of life and all parts of the world. The We Wai Kai band of the indigenous Laichwiltach People, (Kwa’ Kwa’ Ka’ Wa’Kw First Nation) reside at Cape Mudge (Yaculta). Nearby Quathiaski Cove is the main port of arrival and commercial hub of the island. Picturesque Heriot Bay serves as departure point for the ferry to Cortes Island and other boat services to the outer Discovery Islands.

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 welcome!


We also have 2 grocery stores on the island, with 2  liquor outlets, a pharmacy,  a chiropractor, dentist and several excellent health practitioners.

 We will be happy to assist you in planning your activities while on the Island with information, maps, and personal experiences.

We had the good fortune of spending a week on this beautiful island–hiking, canoeing & just “kicking back”. The hike up S. China Mountain is tough, but the view from the top is absolutely stunning.

Hospitality here has been warm & wonderful. Tracy & Nanci had great suggestions on trails to hike & places to paddle. Great food, too! (The home-made granola was fantastic!) Verne & Mary Redman & the kids, Renton, WA
