Premier Listings for Penrose Island Marine Park

Beautifully situated between Fitz Hugh Sound and Rivers Inlet, Penrose Island Marine Provincial Park is a unique archipelago of islands and islets. The park is used by the Owikeeno First Nations for traditional shellfish gathering. The Island is a pleasant place and offers good opportunities for diving, fishing, kayaking and wildlife viewing.

The 2,013-hectare park (934 hectares of land) extends across Penrose Island and includes several excellent anchorages. Because the island is an undeveloped wilderness area with no facilities, visitors should be self-contained and properly equipped. Wilderness, backcountry or walk-in camping is allowed. Suitable sites above the high tide line can be difficult to find because of the thick undergrowth of the coastal forest and rocky shore. If you decide to camp, use the beach at Clam Bay.

The nearest supply centre is Dawson’s Landing, about 20 miles to the east, on the north shore of Darby Channel, Rivers Inlet.

Penrose Island Marine Provincial Park is located between Fitz Hugh Sound and the entrance to Rivers Inlet on the Discovery Coast of British Columbia.

Biographical Info

Awaken to the song of the Humpback whale. Fall asleep beneath the hushed canopy of a temperate rainforest. Fill your days whale-watching, kayaking with Orcas, observing sea lions romp through an underwater forest of kelp, and eagles fishing along the shore. Linger over lunch on a deserted island, scanning the horizon for signs of Orca activity.

Sign up for Ecosummer’s guided Orca Camps to kayak in the realm of Killer Whales. Explore the rainforest, hiking to waterfalls, or along ancient First Nation trails. Marvel when dolphins swim so close you wish you could reach out and touch them. Tune in to the rhythm of the tides. Escape the hubbub of your everyday world and restore life’s equilibrium on the shores of BC’s Johnstone Strait, one of the best places to whale-watch in all of British Columbia. Paddle the same waters as these gentle giants on three, four, or six-day kayaking adventures with Ecosummer Expeditions for a family vacation you’ll always remember.
