Nelson & Hardy Island
Nelson Island and its tiny twin, Hardy Island, are somewhat well-kept secrets in the kayaking community. Both islands have an array of marine and wildlife. Typically, there are no predatory animals on the islands, which provides a safe environment for all to use and enjoy. Visitors can expect to see seal colonies, sea lions, river otters, bald eagles and kelp beds teeming with benthic fauna. Depending on the season, they may even glimpse the dorsal fins of a migrating orca pod.
Nelson and Hardy Island are famous with the yachting crowd for the scenery and anchorages in Blind Bay and Telescope Pass. The area has a lot to offer and 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.
Nelson Island within a 10 minute boat ride from Saltery Bay Marina on the mainland. Within a 25-minute drive from Saltery Bay is the community of Powell River, which gives you access to all major services, including three major grocery stores, Walmart, two major building supply stores, hospital, restaurants and a municipal airport for regional transportation, in addition to a whole lot more.
Miles of hiking trails lead to beautiful lookouts, waterfalls, or peaceful lakes which can be viewed along the 180 km Sunshine Coast Trail and numerous recreational areas can be reached by logging roads, which are owned by logging companies. Boating and sports fishing are ardently pursued as all season sports. Marinas and Government docks are available to residents and visitors.
Powell River is known as the "HOT SPOT" for winter diving in North America. The "Mermaid" at Mermaid Cove in Saltery Bay Provincial Park is an extra special attraction. The area also has some of the largest wolf eel and octopus in the world. Canoeing may also be enjoyed on the quiet lakes of Powell River or you can take in the Powell Forest Canoe Route Circuit. Ocean canoeing and kayaking is very popular in Jervis Inlet, the Copeland Islands Marine Park, Malaspina Inlet with Okeover Arm and Desolation Sound. For all the nature lovers and sightseers, Powell River has many parks, viewpoints and beaches to explore, and the hiking club will help you take advantage of the many beautiful trails. Bird watching is also unprecedented.
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 in Blind Bay and Hidden Basin, the area has a lot to offer boaters.
Nelson Island was once a busy place. A granite quarry opened on the island in 1887 by Chandler and Sons and its stone was used to build the BC Legislature in Victoria, the Empress Hotel, the Vancouver Law Courts, Victory Square and the library at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
Nelson Island is defined by Hotham Sound, Agammemnon Channel and Malaspina Strait near Pender Harbour, British Columbia. It is largely depopulated and forested, and the hilly island is quite remote. Lakes and large mountainous hills define the layout. Hardy Island sits alongside Nelson Island with Blind Bay in between the two. Log booms and granite quarries are featured on the island. There were once a few homesteads on the island, and now there are summer cabins.
Harry Roberts, namesake to Roberts Creek, Sechelt, built a sawmill in Sechelt which provided lumber for most of the new houses in the area and the government wharf, as well as timbers for the 13 bridges necessary to construct Lower Road. He was well-known for his unique house and boat designs and much of the lumber he produced was used in their construction. He also built and furnished small cottages to rent to vacationers and eventually subdivided, as the demand for land grew.
In 1923 Harry leased out his mill and store and in 1929 he moved with his family to a retirement home on Nelson Island. The house he built here, called Sunray, was a charming cottage with south-facing walls of glass. It still stands in its idyllic cove at Cape Cockburn. It was Harry who originated the term Sunshine Coast. He painted a huge sign, visible from the ocean, on the side of the steamer company's freight shed near his Roberts Creek store.
