BCO Coastal Gems: Jervis Inlet

Jervis Inlet is the principal inlet on the British Columbia Coast.  It  extends over 80 km into the Coastal Mountain range, through stunning granite-walled cliffs and forested mountains. This inlet is the deepest of British Columbia’s numerous inlets, reaching depths of over 720 meters or 2,400 ft., and is located about 95 km northwest of Vancouver The inlet was named by George Vancouver after Rear Admiral Sir John Jervis.

Like most other places on the BC Coast, Jervis Inlet was involved in the logging and fishing industries in the 19th and 20th centuries. It also has a history as a seasonal settlement for First Nations groups.
Access points and service centers include Egmont providing access to Sechelt and Vancouver as well as Saltry Bay which provides access to the Northern Sunshine Coast and Powell River.  There are no roadways into Jervis Inlet as this is one of many boat access areas of the central coast region. The remote location and breath-taking beauty make it an ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Live It!
