Area Data :

Savary Island
This pearl of an island, which looks like it floated up from the South Seas is known as the Hawaii of the north for its mild climate and miles of white sandy beaches. It is about five miles long and averages half a mile wide. Low-lying Savary is ideally situated in the rain shadow between Vancouver Island and the Coastal Mountains and unlike most Gulf Islands, Savary runs east-west. The tides moving from the north and south of Georgia Strait meet just north of Savary. The southern tide is warm and the waters move less. This results in generally warmer seas. This water flows over Savary's sunbaked sandy shelf producing the warmest water north of Mexico. Since there are no campsites here, accommodation takes the form of cabin rental or Bed-and-Breakfast. The south shore has the strait winds so it has big rollers and attracts surfers. There is a public wharf and floats at Keefer Bay


Savary Island is very safe - more park than wilderness. There are no bears, cougars, rats, or raccoons on Savary. Deer are the only common large mammal while mink and otters come ashore occasionally. There are many bald eagles and hummingbirds which summer here while owls, woodpeckers and many migratory species frequent the island. As well as clams there are oysters, mussels, crab and geoducks found on or near the beaches.

History : Two centuries ago explorer George Vancouver observed Savary, with its white-sand beaches, as having “beauty such as we have seldom enjoyed.” Vancouver had 2 commanders, Galiano and Valdes to dinner when passing by this island in June of 1792. He named it Savary’s Island but he does not tell us who Savary was, and nobody has been able to identify him.
