Heriot Bay Inn & Marina

A historical spot with fine tastes and that good-old fashioned lodge kind of feeling. It's a hub to a lot of activities and a nice view for both the music and dance-seeking traveller and for the more mellower getaway. One can camp or stay in the inn. It's also the place where one would meet the locals. We hold our pre-trip meetings here in the lounge, just past the main hotel reception area.

Lunavista Cabin

A cabin in a stellar location with some of the best views of the ocean and the mountains of the mainland. Built by really friendly folk, Doug and Gretchen Peters, longtime Quadra residents.


Whiskey Point Resort

Located right as you get off the ferry, in the parking lot just past The Landing Pub. There's a hot tub, apparently open 24 hours, and you can rent Island Cycle bikes from there. If they don't have the size for you then Island Cycle can drop one off or you can pop over to the shop near Taku Resort and hit the trails around there or further north.

Taku Resort

Taku really has accommodations for everyone, right from camping to motel-type rooms to private cabins to a lodge on the water where you can literally step out of the door onto the dock - this past spring there were a few baby seals hanging out there. (Seal-etiquette really should be practiced as they're vulnerable those little guys, didn't Greenpeace tell us so?) Taku is also home to their impressive Taku Cookery series of classes and it's our launching spot for our kayaking day tours.

If you're looking to camp at the Rebecca Spit Provincial Park, these are the folks to talk to. Owned and operated by the Cape Mudge Indian Band, it's organized and has treed and water sites, access to a surprising number of trails not to mention the spit.
