Landing Comments:

Easy on moderate gradient pebble, cobble beach, or on steeper causeway riprap in protected bay. SE aspect. Currents outside bay. Private float nearby.Difficult access from W.

Camp Comments:

Undeveloped. Camping on Quadra shore adjacent to causeway on W or E side,Some shelter from NW, but wind may funnel. E side offers more protection. Possible alternative site at N 50D 7.923M,W 125D 20.278M not assessed.

Other Comments:

Near former Ripple Rock. Access hiking trail maintained by RSTBC. Anchorage. Reported small tidal electric generating plant in causeway to island but nothing visible 2018. Aquaculture nearby in S bay. Purpose and ownership of float and gangway unknown – presumably energy company property. Saltwater lagoon nearby.
