Pender Island
48°46.892'N, 123°16.161'W Chart icon.png

Pender Island has a Port of Entry


Pender Island is now two islands. In 1903 a canal was built between Shark Cove and Bedwell Harbour, dividing the island into North and South Pender Islands. A single lane bridge with a clearance of 8.5 meters now connects the islands. North Pender has three marinas: Otter Bay, Port Browning and Thieves Bay (private). The marina on South Pender Island is Poets Cove in Bedwell Harbour.
