April Point Resort & Spa Quadra Island 2 nights

**Please note April Point fishing packages are ONLY available from May until early October.

The April Point Resort, which started as a fishing camp in the 1940s, has since evolved into a glorious oceanfront retreat that’s been modernized without losing its original historic charm. Guests can take on BC’s mighty salmon, or just get away from it all. Each room offers an ocean view and beautiful decor. The Oceanfront Restaurant and Sushi Bar offers world-class West Coast cuisine, focusing on seafood and pasta dishes with a unique fresh sushi bar. The large dining room features ocean views from every table, and outdoor dining on the wraparound sundeck. After dinner, guests can relax in the cozy fireside lounge in the main lodge.

The resort also offers the Aveda Concept Spa, which is set in the manicured gardens of the resort on the shores of Discovery Passage, in the centre of a tranquil pool. Housed in a Japanese-inspired building, the spa combines stunning views with the Aveda philosophy of relaxation. It offers a wide variety of treatments and options.

The resort is on the largest and most populated of the Discovery Islands. From Quadra Island to downtown Campbell River, it is only a 10-minute BC Ferries trip. Nestled between Vancouver Island and the mainland, Quadra is best known for its scenery and excellent salmon and freshwater sport fishing. But the island also offers diving, hiking, mountain biking, sea kayaking and year-round culture and wildlife viewing. Rolling forested hills offer over 200 kilometres of hiking trails, and mountain bikers have countless back roads and trails to ride. The nearby inlets provide access to the vast Coast Range, one of the world's greatest mountain wilderness areas. The First Nations residents and global migrants together create a harmonious community rich in art and culture.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, your guide can set the hooks, offer new tips and techniques, and help you reel in the catch.
