BCO Coastal Gems: Stuart Island

Stuart Island is in the Discovery Islands, at the mouth of Bute Inlet. It is mostly known for being the home to many high-end resorts and private residences. Although the island is boat access, most residents and lodge guests arrive by float plane or helicopter.

The area around Stuart Island is known for excellent fishing and boating, as well as for the access to spectacular Bute Inlet.

Stuart Island has a public dock and a liquor store, as well as regular water taxi service in the summer. The boat trip from Campbell River is approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

Compared to some of the other outer islands in the Discovery Group, Stuart Island has a large number of private residents. This creates a sense of community on the island, as well as more boat traffic in the area.

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