Powell River Attractions
Where endless green mountains meet sheltered Pacific Ocean waters, Powell River provides a stimulating blend of outdoor adventure and cultural amenities. Originally founded as a resource extraction centre â?? once home to the world's largest pulp and paper mill â?? Powell River now offers water lovers countless opportunities for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and scuba diving. Don't miss Marine Avenue's art galleries and dining, plus the historic, planned Townsite, designated a National Historic District in 1995.
It's easy to make a splash in Powell River. Set up a kayak tour out of Lund and explore Desolation Sound Marine Park, British Columbia's biggest marine park. Its 60km/37mi of sheltered coastline is laden with picturesque bays, coves, and inlets. First Nations petroglyphs, seals, and porpoises can be spotted.
Another popular kayaking destination is the Copeland Islands, where bald eagles and deer can be sighted while following the archipelago's narrow passageways. Mitlenatch Island attracts bird-watchers, as it's home to the Strait of Georgia's largest population of sea birds.
Canoeists flock to the famous Powell River Forest Canoe Route, encompassing eight pristine lakes on an 80km/50mi circuit with camping and B&B access. Experience some of the world's best cold-water diving, according to renowned explorer Jacques Cousteau, and see the bronze mermaid statue submerged in Mermaid Cove, or wolf eels and octopi at the wreck of the Malahat sailing ship. Fishing aficionados can catch abundant salmon, rainbow trout, or kokanee locally, and the excellent oystering substantiates Powell River's nickname, "The Pearl of the Sunshine Coast."

Opportunities for swimming, camping, and boating abound at Powell River's parks. Sample everything from the rocky beaches teeming with tidal pool life at Saltery Bay Provincial Park to the amazingly wheelchair-friendly hiking circuit at Inland Lake Provincial Park.
