Nelson Island

Nelson Island is named after Viscount Horatio Nelson, the hero of the British navy. Nelson Island sits at the mouth of Jervis Inlet guarding the secrets of Prince of Wales Reach and Queens Reach. Famous with the yachting crowd for the scenery and anchorages, the area has a lot to offer. It is one of the few spots on the coast where you can feel the presence of the towering Coast Mountains while experiencing the expanse of the Strait of Georgia. It is a region with a mild, dry and semi-Mediterranean climate.


Jervis Inlet

Slicing deep into the Coast Mountain Range. Jervis Inlet becomes Princess Royal Reach and Queens Reach, with a branch to Princess Louisa Inlet and the famed Chatterbox Falls. A popular recreation destination in Jervis Inlet is Hotham Sound, an isolated and protected warm-water wilderness leading off the north shore of the inlet. Hotham Sound is ringed by steep mountains and walls of sheer rock, with numerous tumbling waterfalls - majestic Pacific Northwest scenery! Hotham Sound is named after Admiral William Hotham of the Royal Navy, Commander-in-Chief in the Mediterranean in the 1790s. The peaceful Hotham Sound is a favorite destination for kayakers who explore the sheltered coves and bays, and enjoy wilderness camping amongst the Harmony Islands.

The annual rainfall is approximately 100 cm (40 in). The Sunshine Coast is sheltered from the open Pacific and the milder weather patterns result in very light snowfalls in the region.


The Sunshine Coast is split into two portions on either side of Jervis Inlet. Roughly speaking, the southern half between the ferry slips at Langdale and Earls Cove occupies the Sechelt Peninsula, while the northern half between the ferry slip at Saltery Bay and Lund sits on the Malaspina Peninsula.

History :
In 1932 while exploring Jervis Inlet on the 36 foot power boat Camella, Cam Balmer, Fred Burnham and Frank Nelmes spent a number of days anchored off these islands. After the time spent in this little paradise talks began and the three set out to find who owned the islands. After a few weeks they had found the Crown owned the islands and were offering them for sale. The largest was offered for sale at $92, the other two were offered at $86 and $70. It doesn’t seem like much but back then during the Depression it was a significant amount of money.
