Quadra Island Wilderness Kayaking Lodge

Welcome to Discovery Islands Lodge

Discovery Islands Lodge offers off-grid Quadra Island accommodation and wilderness kayak getaways for adventurous people.

Perched over the ocean in the heart of the Discovery Islands, this classic west coast building offers easy access to the un-crowded and diverse waterways around northern Quadra Island. Hiking trails, lakes, and Provincial Parks are a stone’s throw away, and nearby Surge Narrows offers excellent inter-tidal viewing and tidal current paddling opportunities. Quiet and secluded, with ocean, island and mountain views, this classic west coast lodge is the perfect base for exploring the Discovery Islands.

Our fully catered and guided Surge Narrows Lodge Getaways offer the opportunity to experience the best that the area has to offer, while a limited number of private lodge rentals are available during our shoulder season for those seeking a self-guided stay. 

The Lodge

Discovery Islands Lodge features a spacious upstairs common area, well equipped kitchen, comfortable rooms, and spectacular views. The facility is totally off-grid, and powered primarily by solar with gas generator backup. Spacious decks and a large dock offer plenty of space for relaxation, and a wood-fired sauna offers post-paddling bliss.  


The lodge has 8 rooms, plus a separate “Cabana Suite”. Rooms are simple, yet comfortable, and can be configured as two single beds or one queen. Family rooms are also available. 

The lodge has four bathrooms with toilets & wash sinks. Bedrooms do not have bathrooms in them (except the Cabana Suite). There are two showers with hot & cold running water.
