BCO Coastal Gems: Sayward

Located on the east coast of north Vancouver Island, BC, the logging community of Sayward has a population of approximately 410 and is just 45 minutes away from Campbell River and all the facilities and shopping one would require. The small settlement community of Kelsey Bay is located 1 mile from Sayward and enjoys a resident population of approximately 120.

This picturesque area has an abundance of wildlife, fresh, & salt-water fishing. Outdoor recreation includes caving, kayaking, hiking, whale watching, wildlife viewing, and exhilarating river rafting on the Salmon River. Robson Bight Provincial Park - west of Sayward in Johnstone Strait, provides ocean adventurers with a sure thing when it comes to whale watching.

Travel time along the Island Highway 19 to Sayward is under one hour from Campbell River in the south, and about 2 hours from Port Hardy to the north. Logging is the primary industry in the area around Sayward and Kelsey Bay, but tourism continues to grow and gain in importance. 
It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
