One of the best-kept secrets of Desolation Sound is Okeover Arm. Situated at the start of Desolation Sound, the warm waters of Okeover inlet are a haven for wilderness kayaking, canoeing and sailing. These inviting waters are also home to a large mariculture industry, including oysters and clams.


The fishing in the surrounding is excellent and there are many local charter fishing boats eager to prove it. If you're not interested in fishing, you can head out on the boat for a day trip and explore the Copeland Islands Marine Provincial Marine Park or the spectacular sights of world famous Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park.


Kayaking in the area is very rewarding, especially around the bays and islets of the nearby Copeland Islands Marine Provincial Park, a group of pristine islands situated north of the Lund Harbour. The sea life is abundant with seals, fish, sea stars, water fowl and the occasional whale. Watch for bald eagles too.


You can also snorkel, swim or sunbathe from the sandy shores of tropical Savary Island, which is just minutes away by water taxi. The unpaved roadways, winding trails and friendly islanders make it a relaxing place to bike or hike.


Mitlenatch Island Nature Provincial Park is accessible by boat and is a bird watcher’s paradise, but is also home to interesting and unusual flowers, foliage and butterflies, not to mention the seals and sea lions.


The nearby Sunshine Coast Trail offers great scenic hikes. It begins at Sarah Point, near the mouth of Okeover Inlet, and ends in Saltery Bay at the southern end of the Malaspina Peninsula. Accessible from several points along the route, hikers can plan short day hikes, overnight hikes or longer multi-day hikes. It is strongly suggested that you obtain information about the trail (i.e. water, private property, wildlife, etc) before hiking any sections.


The Tla'amin Nation offers a First Nations cultural experience. Native to the area, this west coast nation offers traditional canoe trips and longhouse ceremonies with a meal.


Purchase a Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence and try your hand at picking oysters or digging clams on the beach at Okeover Inlet. From the shore, several oyster farms can be identified by their white floats across the Inlet.


With the warmest waters north of the Baja Peninsula, local scuba diving boasts excellent visibility and truly abundant sea life. Night dives can be spectacular, especially for octopus enthusiasts.


Shopping is handy in nearby Powell River. Marine Avenue presents unique shops and quaint galleries, not to mention the unusual restaurants and curio stores tucked away around corners.


Basically, Okeover and Lund are places to get away from it all, relax, unwind and take a deep breath of fresh ocean air.

Area Data :

Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park
Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park (8,256 hectares) is British Columbia's largest marine park. It includes more than 60 km of shoreline, several offshore islands and a gradually rising upland that contains a number of lakes, waterways and waterfalls. Unwin Lake, a 173 hectare body of fresh water, is the park's largest lake. Set back to the north and east, Coast Mountains soar to more than 2,400 metres. The warm waters surrounding the area teem with sea life. Ideal for swimming, scuba diving and feasting on your catch of the day, salmon, cod, prawns, crab, clams and oysters. Plenty other tasty morsels lie beneath on the oceans floor; to acquire them you must put on your scuba gear and get a little wet, or you could take a short drive by boat or car to the Laughing Oyster Restaurant at the head of Okeover Inlet, which is one, if not the best, place to eat in the overall area of Powell River.


Okeover Arm Provincial Park
Okeover Arm Provincial Park is located on Okeover Arm, a long neck of water along the east side of the Malaspina Peninsula on the northern Sunshine Coast. Visitors and paddlers will enjoy the 4-hectare park's waterfront setting and small campground. There are hiking trails that wind through lightly forested uplands, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy swimming, fishing, diving and boating.


The park is the choice of paddlers intent on exploring Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park and is also an ideal launching spot for kayakers who plan to paddle the sheltered waters of the Malaspina Inlet.


Divers can explore the Okeover Caves on the east side of Okeover Arm. The sheer rock wall descends straight down and there are two caves, with the deeper one being at 27 to 30 metres. There are facilities for divers in Lund that include dive-kayak rentals, charters and air fills.


This park offers 14 vehicle accessible campsites and 4 tent only sites on a first-come, first-served basis and campsite reservations are not accepted. The 14 vehicle accessible sites are open seasonally and the 4 tent only sites are open all year. Except in the busiest summer months, you'll probably have your choice of any of the walk-in sites in the forest beside Okeover Arm.


Part of the campsite and day use area is situated on a traditional Tla'amin First Nations archeological site. There are interpretive signs explaining the significant aspects of the site.


Although this park does not have a boat launch, there is a boat launch immediately adjacent to the park. Please note that the boat launch is only recommended for use during high tides and with 4-wheel drive vehicles.


Lund
Only a few minutes drive from the government wharf is the historic community of Lund, where you can find a grocery and liquor store, a few restaurants, pub, marine mechanics, tour and recreation services.


The area of Lund was established in 1899 when the Thulin Brothers started to build the hotel, which is still in use today. Recently the hotel has changed ownership and has seen a major renovation. For most of the early years Lund served as a port for fisherman. Today Lund thrives on its attraction from tourists.


Desolation Sound, Savary Island, Harwood Island, Bliss Landing and the Copeland Islands are areas of interest and are all located in close proximity to the property. The area is rich in natural beauty and abundant with sea life. The area is also rated among the best in the world for its scuba diving.


Powell River
Powell River, with a population of approximately 20,000 people, is the largest center closest to the property, and just a 20-minute drive south. Powell River is an increasingly popular community to live in because of its low cost of living and a quality standard of life. This friendly seaside town offers 'big city' amenities and luxury services without the 'big city' parking and traffic hassles. A full-service hospital, medical, dental, chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage therapy clinics, health and beauty spas, a newly renovated recreation complex, full banking facilities, marine services, outdoor guides and outfitters, challenging championship par-72 golf course, plus a wide range of retail outlets, art galleries, gift shops and fine dining are all within easy access.


The Upper Sunshine Coast, from Saltery Bay to Desolation Sound, boasts approximately 1,900 hours of sunshine annually. Summer temperatures vary from 20 to 30 degrees Celsius (70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit) while winter temperatures are mild.

History :

Lund is a quiet village about 17 miles north of Powell River and the physical ending (or, as argued by locals, the "starting") point of Highway 101, which stretches to Chile, South America. The Historic Lund Hotel symbolizes the heart of Lund, and to marine traffic it is the symbolic gateway to beautiful Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park.


The area that is now Lund has been known to the Coast Salish peoples for thousands of years was a village site of the Tla'amin people. The village of Klah ah men was home to dozens of families and a desirable location as it was accessible by land and sea so approaching visitors could be detected from afar.


Further, both I hohs (Savary Island) and Tohk natch (Okeover Inlet), plentiful in shellfish, salmon and land mammals, were only short paddles away. Fresh water was ample as were Cedar trees, the main material source in the production of tools, shelter, clothing and more. Ceremonies, both spiritual and social in nature, were held at Klah ah men, and included dance, song and recreational games that were a major part of Coast Salish culture.


In 1889 Fred and Charlie Thulin arrived from Sweden, looking for a better life in the new "land of opportunity." The brothers first set eyes upon the area that would later become Lund while sailing by on the side-wheeler tugboat Mermaid on their way to find employment logging in Pendrell Sound. Shortly thereafter Fred and Charlie settled in the area they named Lund, after the University town of the same name in their native Sweden, immediately building a wharf, logging the bay, piping in water and converting suitable land on the settlement to farmland.


In 1892 a post office was established, one of only two north of Vancouver at the time. A general store was constructed and shortly thereafter the first passenger and mail boat began making regular stops at Lund, tying it to the world. By 1895 the brothers had built Lund’s first hotel, which held both the first hotel licence and the first liquor licence to be issued north of Vancouver. A bottle of the best scotch was available for $1.50 and the basement of the hotel housed a jail cell, primarily used to “accommodate” any drunken rowdies patronizing the hotel. By 1905 the Thulins had purchased the first donkey engine seen up the coast, built their first steamboat "City of Lund" and expanded their chain of stores to Tla'amin Village and to where present day town site is. As coastal traffic continued to increase in 1905 the Thulins began construction of a second hotel, The Malaspina, which in 1918 was renamed the Lund Hotel after the original building was destroyed by fire.


In November 1999 the Tla'amin First Nation and a local businessman purchased the property and commenced extensive renovations, reopening the doors in the spring of 2000. Although further improvements and expansion are planned, the hotel currently boasts 27 well-appointed guest rooms and the new pub and restaurant feature un-obscured ocean views as well as spectacular menus. During the warmer months guests may dine on the spacious waterfront decks, savoring the ocean breeze and the bustling activity of Lund Harbour. Historic photos grace the walls of the entire hotel, telling the story of the hotel and Lund as only those immortalized by the camera could truly tell it
