Nestled on the east coast of central Vancouver Island, and long known as the "Salmon Capital of the World" and more recently as an adventure and eco-tourism hub, Campbell River is a natural destination choice, in more ways than one.
Capture the spirit of Campbell River with a stroll in the sea breezes on Discovery Pier and you might see a salmon, eagle or whale. Take in views of Discovery Passage, Quadra Island and, in the distance, the rugged Coast Mountain range of mainland British Columbia. Explore trails along Campbell River's namesake, a designated British Columbia Heritage River. Restore your soul amidst streams and lakes in forests kept green by the mild Pacific Coast climate.

For thousands of years, from the time of First Nations' villages to the arrival of European explorers and eventually permanent settlement, the rhythm of life in this region has flowed with the movement of the salmon. Our salmon and the waters they travel are an intrinsic part of our heritage and they're our legacy too. One that we invite you to share in.
In this setting, you're not just watching the drama unfold; you're part of it! As the sun rises over British Columbia's coastal mountain ranges, the coastline of Discovery Passage comes to life. Just a short ferry ride across the water, Quadra and neighbouring islands awaken under a blanket of firs and cedars. Cape Mudge lighthouse blinks warnings to seafaring passers-by. When slack tide approaches, yachts, fish boats, tugs, freighters, and enormous Alaska-bound cruise ships line up to navigate Seymour Narrows' tricky waters. In Campbell River, you can enjoy this constantly changing panorama from our seaside walkways, restaurants and accommodations.
