My wife and I are avid kayakers and have been to the Discovery Islands Lodge twice. A major attraction for us is location, only 10 minutes away from Surge Narrows and a well-placed base for kayaking to campsites in the Discovery Islands. Kayakers of all abilities from novice to expert can find nearby places to paddle and the lodge routinely offers day trips. The kayak fleet is excellent and ranges from very solid Current Design and Seaward kayaks to high performance Romany and NDKs. Another big plus is that Discovery Islands Lodge is well off the beaten path, so that when one sits on the veranda to enjoy the view, it is utterly peaceful. The people working at the lodge are very friendly, professional and interesting. The lodge is very clean and has a well-stocked and highly organized communal kitchen with a powerful propane stove and oven as well as beautiful long communal table perfect for meeting other folks. The breakfasts are consistently nourishing and delicious. Some suggestions: get fresh seafood at Crabby Bob's in Campbell River, get gas in Campbell River or at the Gas N' Go in Quadra Island so you don't worry about running out of gas when leaving the lodge, and take advantage of the limited wifi and cellphone access and relax. Finally, the Discovery Islands Lodge is a family run operation who renovated a fish processing building from the ground up and their love of the place and attention to detail shines throughout.

Lodge is very clean, food all homemade and delicious. Kayaking was wonderful. Saw lots of marine life like sea urchins, sea lions, starfish. Kate was a pleasure to be with and very knowledgeable. Highly recommend this experience.

Very friendly staff who outfitted us with our kayak gear for our 2 day paddle - with just enough info to ensure we were safe, but still feel like adventurers exploring the wilderness. Staying at the lodge at the end of the trip was a perfect bookend - The rooms in the lodge are very clean, the kitchen facility inviting and the breakfast served was hearty and delicious. The outdoor shower is a treat. It is fully off the grid. Getting to the lodge takes you on some amazing roads.

what a lovely stay we had here - myself my husband and 2 kids. We were in the stand alone villa - but had breakfast ( delish homemade and fresh and healthy and hearty !) in the lodge with other residents. Good self catering facilities. Staff lovely and helpful. Must say thanks to the lovely Joya - who was wonderful with my children. We took the guided day out sea kayaking with lunch. Had the best time - Alby and Joya were really fantastic - more than just a job for them and we felt really welcome -thanks - and what a FABULOUS lunch - home made bread and salmon salad - with oodles of other goodies and home made cookies - THANK YOU FOR YOR hospitality. TOP TIP - there are mosquitos so go prepared !! go you wont regret it !

While it takes a bit of effort to get to Discovery Island Lodge the rewards are terrific. A wonderfully friendly staff, fantastic breakfasts, a fully equipped kitchen to prepare dinners and views that are amazing. The dock is perfect to launch a kayak and the opportunities are wonderful from beginner to advanced paddlers. I loved this place and will return!!

Room tip: The rooms facing the water are wonderful.
