Savary Island is a crescent-shaped island located in the Strait of Georgia 144 km (89 miles) northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia and 6 km (4 miles) west of Lund on the Sunshine Coast. 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 8 km (5 miles) long and averages just under 1 km (1/2 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, which results in generally warmer seas. This water flows over Savary’s sun baked sandy shelf producing the warmest water north of Mexico.
The Island has a public wharf and is accessible by float plane, boat, barge or water taxi from Lund. Since there are no campsites here, accommodation takes the form of cabin rental or Bed & Breakfast. The south shore has the strait winds so it has big rollers and attracts surfers.
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 two commanders, Galiano and Valdes, to dinner when passing by this island in June of 1792. He named it "Savary’s Island" possibly for a French admiral, but nobody has been able to confirm "Savary's" identity.|
