Savary is a jewel of an island surrounded by white sand beaches. We will hike or kayak on Tuesday. Cyndy’s place is off grid with two outdoor composting toilets, a wood fired sauna, and indoor propane cooking facilities. There is a solar panel for lights and charging cell phones. Water is hand pumped. Remember that August is the busiest time of year and Monday is a holiday.
Getting there: Your own boat (kayak, motor or sailboat). There is no moorage on a dock; you can anchor. Other options are a water taxi from Campbell River, or a water taxi combined with truck taxi from Lund. These can be shared. There is also a 15 minute reasonably priced float plane ride on Coralair from Campbell River that will land you close to the cabin, weather permitting, if you reserve ahead.

|Dogs?||Yes if hiking; No if kayaking. Dogs love Savary Island, but you must pack water for them.|
|Notes:||Please bring your own gear for camping, cooking and boating, as well as your own food. Kayaks are not available to rent on Savary, so you need to bring your own if you want to kayak. We ask that you take your garbage off the island when you leave with the exception of burnables and compost.|
