Quadra Island Accommodation

Welcome to Quadra Island’s B&B Kayak Inn

Discovery Islands Lodge is located on the waterfront just beyond Main Lakes Provincial Park on Quadra Island near Vancouver Island.


Set in the remote wilderness part of north Quadra Island, Discovery Islands Lodge is near the end of the Surge Narrows road, a 22 km drive from the nearest serviced community at Heriot Bay.


We are beyond the "grid" and committed to being part of the global effort to reduce greenhouse gases. We have fossil fuel backup, but we generate most of our power from solar and wind renewable sources. This preserves the quiet ambience of our incredibly beautiful location. It also means we have enough, but limited, electricity for lights and appliances.


Please come prepared for staying with us:

Limited energy means we use a clothesline and fresh air to dry bed-linens - and we also try to minimize our laundry! Beds are made up with a clean bottom sheet and covered pillow. If you are travelling light, we have top-bedding and towels available.





Meals at Discovery Islands Lodge: Overnight room price includes a good breakfast, but we don't offer regular prepared lunch and dinner service. The Lodge has a fully equipped kitchen for guests to share. Some fridge space is available and we can also supply ice for coolers.



We provide cookware, cutlery and dishes, but you need to bring your food supplies!


Bring a flashlight. Rooms have electric lighting, but hallways and outside areas may be dimly lit. Long summer days provide sunlight until well past 9:00 PM; by late August and September darkness comes earlier.


There are two well-stocked grocery stores on Quadra Island, at Heriot Bay and at Quathiaski Cove. Both carry a good selection of meat & seafood, dairy, fresh fruit and vegetables, organic-ethnic-specialty foods, bakery, wine, beer, and liquor.   Bathrooms, Showers, & Sauna: The lodge has four bathrooms with toilets & wash sinks. Bedrooms do not have bathrooms in them. There are two showers with hot & cold running water, and there is also a wood fired sauna on the dock.   Waste Disposal: Except for compost, there are no garbage disposal services at Discovery Islands Lodge.  If you are cooking or camping, please purchase food products with a minimum of packaging and plan ahead to either sort your garbage or take it with you!


Recycling: Paper, glass, plastic and cans can be recycled at the bins near the Quathiaski Cove ferry departure on Quadra Island.
