The spectacular Discovery Islands archipelago is located along the Inside Passage, between Campbell River, north-central Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia, on Canada's west coast. Quadra Island and Cortes Island are the best known of the Discovery Islands and home for most of the local residents. The warm, temperate climate, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, quiet, rural-lifestyle and endless year-round recreation opportunities all make the Discovery Islands a highly desirable place to live and visit.
