BCO Coastal Gems: Sonora Island

Sonora Island is one of the larger islands in the Discovery Islands Group, with a land mass of 30 square km and several mountain peaks. It is also one of the more northern of the island group.

Sonora is known for its world class resort, Sonora Island Resort, as well as some of its larger exclusive estates. There are also small land holdings here, typical of all the Discovery Islands.

The island is surrounded by rapids, including Hole in the Wall between Sonora and Maurelle Islands - a favourite with locals and tourist boat groups - and the Yaculta Rapids. They feature drops, whirlpools and fast water.

Access to Sonora Island is by boat or float plane as there is no ferry service. In the summer there is regular water taxi service from Campbell River.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
