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. A granite quarry opened on the island in 1887 and its stone was used to build the B.C. Legislature in Victoria and the library at the University of British Columbia (UBC).
Pender Harbour, north of Sechelt, was once the winter headquarters of the Sechelt Nation, and on nearby Mount Daniel you can see the remains of moon rings (stone circles built by Sechelt girls as they entered womanhood), and Sechelt pictographs mark the cliffs above Sakinaw Lake.
Originally famous for fabulous sport fishing, the tranquil and bustling Pender Harbour today is also a favourite spot for artists and photographers, as well as canoeists and kayakers. The 52 kilometres of jagged harbour shoreline support all sorts of housing, marine and recreational developments.
World-class yachts make Pender Harbour their evening destination anchorage, where the sunsets are amongst the best in British Columbia. The deep, clear waters of the harbour are recognized, especially during winter months, as one of the world's premier sites for underwater exploration and photography.
Named after the original First Nations people of the region, the shishalh, the community is sustained by self-government, a communal lifestyle and wisdom of the elders. Sechelt is a small community sitting on a sandbar, the narrow Sechelt isthmus separating Sechelt Inlet from the Strait of Georgia.
If it weren't for this small neck of land less than a half mile wide, a large portion of the peninsula north of Sechelt would be an island, cut off from the mainland. This wedge of sand backs ocean water, which flows from the northwestern entrance to the inlet near Egmont, into three inlets: Sechelt Inlet (the largest), and the Salmon and Narrows Inlets, which branch east from Sechelt Inlet.
The word "Sechelt" means land between two waters. Indian Legend has it that the creator gods were sent by the Divine Spirit to form the world. They carved out valleys leaving a beach along the inlet at Porpoise Bay. Later, the transformers, a male raven and a female mink, changed details by carving trees and forming pools of water. The raven is an integral part of the Sechelt Indian Band's culture and is often seen in their carvings.
A magnificent sweep of beautifully cobbled beach combines wave polished granite ramparts with driftwood & many-coloured pebbles. Treed mountains, cascading creeks and waterfalls create the spectacular coastline of Sechelt making the community a photographer's delight year-round. Sechelt's central location on the southern peninsula of the Sunshine Coast makes it a natural hub for business, culture and tourism. The thriving village is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery and a natural seaside beauty that lends a special charm to the attractions and amenities of the Heart of the Sunshine Coast.
The Sechelt area climate is characterized by mild, moist winters and warm dry summers. Temperatures on the Coast range from freezing in winter to highs of 30C (90F) in summer. The annual rainfall is approximately 100cm (40in.) 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.

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, the Malaspina Inlet with Okeover Arm, and Desolation Sound.
