Heart of the Discovery Islands
About Quadra Island
Quadra & the Discovery Islands
Quathiaski Cove is the main village and commercial centre on the island (say it like: Kwa thee ask ee, or the locals often just call it Q-Cove). It’s located on the west side of the island and is where the ferry to and from Campbell River comes and goes from. Heriot Bay is on the east side of Quadra and is the port of departure for the ferry to Cortes Island and other marine services to the more remote Discovery Islands and mainland inlets. Cape Mudge village is the traditional home and cultural centre of the indigenous We Wai Kai, Laichwiltach First Nation. Most of the 3,000 year-round residents live on the southern peninsula of the island, within ~20 minutes drive of each other.
There are grocery stores and post offices at both Quathiaski Cove and Heriot Bay. Q-Cove also has a credit union (bank), library, pharmacy two medical clinics, bulk food shop, book store, insurance agent, gas station, mechanics, hardware store, gifts shops, galleries, laundromat, and a variety of professional services. Nowhere on Quadra Island is more than a few minute’s drive or bike ride from the nearest public access beach or hiking trail. Residents and visitors alike enjoy Quadra Island for its relaxed pace of life and beautiful natural surroundings.
