Sabine Channel Provincial Park
The park encompasses two complete islands – Jervis and Bunny – located in the Sabine Channel between Texada and Lasqueti Islands, part of a chain of more than 30 islands and rocky islets with Jedediah Island being the largest. The Islands comprise forest ecosystems intermingled with rocky cliffs and outcrops encircled by a rich marine environment.
Relatively easy access and a natural setting with a sense of remoteness make this area a popular destination for kayakers and boaters. Opportunities also exist for hiking, wilderness camping, fishing, scuba diving and nature appreciation..

A pleasant place to enjoy a picnic or spend a day exploring the rocky headlands and arid terrain, which is barren, but beautiful. A rocky point encloses Squitty Bay, a small bay near the southeast tip of Lasqueti Island north of Young Point. Boaters can find anchorage in the bay, which can be a welcome refuge from the windy and open waters of the Strait of Georgia.
Camping is not allowed in the park, and the only facilities are picnic tables, pit toilets and a public dock.
