Quadra Island Accommodation

The Whiskey Point Resort on Quadra Island, near Campbell River British ColumbiaFor Quadra Island accommodation that is very diver-friendly, family friendly and pet friendly, we like the Whiskey Point Resort.

Near to the best dive sites of Campbell River diving, this resort is ideally situated in Quathiaski Cove on Quadra Island, right across from Campbell River.

Q-Cove (for short) is located on the west side of Quadra Island and is the landing point for the BC ferry that quickly connects Quadra Island to Campbell River on Vancouver Island.



Whiskey Point Resort Amenities

Besides the fact the resort on Quadra Island is very happy to host scuba divers, we like them for their friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms, and amenities such as:

Outdoor Pool - This is the only resort on Quadra island with a heated outdoor pool which is open seasonally from about the beginning of May until the end of September. The pool deck is a great place to catch some post-dive sun and to unwind and plan for your next day of activities.

Heated scuba equipment drying room - They have set up a heated room to dry and store your wetsuit/drysuit after your amazing day of diving around Quadra Island and Campbell River.

Outdoor gazebo and hot tub - Their open-air gazebo surrounds the hot tub and offers some privacy while enjoying the refreshing outdoor experience. With seating for seven the hot tub is the perfect place to relax and warm-up after your amazing cool-water dives.

Recreation area - They offer a family play area with lots of picnic tables and lots of activities for the young and the old kids to do, such as tire swing, croquet, badminton, bocce-ball, volleyball, and a trampoline. In the evening they have a fire pit to sit around and talk about your day of diving.

Guest barbeques, a seaside gazebo, tranquil pond area - and other amenities make this our favorite Quadra Island accommodation and place to stay while diving in the area.
