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 offers several beaches, sandstone cliffs and inter-tidal pools. It is also a place rich with relics telling the history of the Sunshine Coast. From aboriginal rock paintings to abandoned logging camps and washed-up shipwrecks, this island, as isolated as it seems, tells the story of hundreds of years of civilization on the Sunshine Coast.
Nelson Island was once a busy place. A granite quarry was 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 rests at the heart of the sublimely scenic Sunshine Coast, at the confluence of Jervis Inlet, Malaspina Strait and Agamemnon Channel. Nelson Island and its tiny twin, Hardy Island, are somewhat well-kept secrets in the kayaking community. The islands have an array of marine and wildlife. 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 Island is defined by Hotham Sound, Agamemnon Channel and Malaspina Strait near Pender Harbour, BC. 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.
Harry Roberts, the namesake to Roberts Creek in Sechelt, built a sawmill in Sechelt which provided lumber for most of the new houses in the area and for the government wharf and 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 moved with his family to Merry Island and then moved to a retirement home on Nelson Island in 1929. The house he built there, 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.
