BCO Coastal Gems: Owen Bay, Sonora and Busby Islands

Owen Bay is located on the south side of Sonora Island on Okisolo Channel, just above Hole in the Wall. Owen Bay has a long history, at one point it was a thriving coastal community of about 1200 people and home to a school, general store. It has now evolved into a quiet, coastal vacation and recreation community with a small complement of full-time residents. There are government dock facilities located in the bay.

This is a popular recreation area in the heart of the Discovery Islands. In the summer there is regular water taxi service.

As with most of the islands in this region, there is much evidence of a varied history of settlement on the island. 

Located within the heart of the Discovery Island group you are surrounded with beautiful natural scenery and an abundance of wildlife. The Sonora Island area offers all types of outdoor recreation and sport activities - fishing, boating, diving, and wildlife viewing, and the availability of seafood such as crab, prawns, clams & oysters are all within minutes of this region. There are also a few marine parks to enjoy within close proximity. The Octopus Island Group Marine Park is only minutes away. Access to the property is by boat or float plane only. Traveling to the property by boat takes a little less than 1 hour from Campbell River and approximately 40 minutes from Heriot Bay on Quadra Island. Both locations provide services and amenities. During the summer months there is regular scheduled water taxi service to and from Campbell River. 

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