Quadra Island Travel Guide



Quadra Island is a community that is part of the Discovery Islands off the eastern coast of Vancouver Island. It has a population of less than 3,000 and can be reached by ferry from Campbell River.

The island was first discovered by Spanish explorer Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra. Today, Quadra Island is a thriving art community resided by white-collar professionals from Campbell River.

The main attraction of Quadra island is the Cape Mudge Indian Village Museum, where there are displays of some fascinating carvings and ceremonial objects, many of which were seized by the authorities during the banning of Indian potlatches — elaborate ceremonies involving ritual and feasting that were deemed heathen by the church. Quadra island also has many lakes, parks, beaches, and trails that attract outdoor enthusiasts.
