  • Octopus Islands Marine Provincial Park routes and trails

    Project Staff

    BC Parks description:

    The group of small islands that make up the Octopus Islands Marine Provincial Park provide safe anchorages for boaters travelling the scenic Inside Passage. BC Marine Trails Network Association includes Octopus Islands as a stop within a network of connected marine accessible campsites, resting areas, and safe havens.

    The park offers a number of different recreational opportunities in addition to boating and paddling, including swimming, hiking, fishing, scuba diving, wilderness camping and nature appreciation. A portage route to Small Inlet Provincial Park on the west side of Quadra Island can be accessed from the Octopus Islands. From this trail, a hiking trail leads to Newton Lake—a lovely place for a freshwater swim. Access to the park is by boat only.

    Date Established: March 26, 1974
    Park Size: 762 hectares (404 hectares of upland and 458 hectares of foreshore)
