Island Properties

Accessible by ferry only, Bowen, Gambier, and Keats Islands are perfect for those who want to be surrounded by nature and live remotely. With a wide variety of oceanic wildlife, it is no surprise why so many love to explore this area to take in its breathtaking scenery.

Howe Sound is situated northwest of Vancouver and joins a network of fjords, and is surrounded by sky-high mountain peaks that rise directly from the ocean. In the heart of the Sound is Bowen Island, a quiet yet alluring destination which is a 20-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay and has become a popular destination for those wanting to live the “island life.”  Its northern neighbor, Gambier Island, is the largest island in the Sound and provides stunning views of the ocean and surrounding mountains, making it a fantastic whale watching location. In the summer months, the water is calm, providing excellent opportunities for fishing, boating, and swimming. Ashore, there are beautiful winding trails that are perfect for hikers and mountain bikers, and we love to get out there whenever we can.

The most Western Island is Keats Island. Renowned for its charming community and stunning views, the island is covered entirely in forest, and although it is seen as more of a summer cottage destination, there are still a few residents who have made Keats Island their permanent home.
