Driftwood on the beach at Rebecca Spit
Rebecca Spit Marine Provincial Park is a beautiful marine park enclosing Drew Harbour on the east coast of Quadra Island in the Discovery Islands of British Columbia. Sandy beaches line both sides of the narrow 2-kilometre spit at sheltered Drew Harbour, backed by open uplands interspersed with stands of mostly second-growth trees, shrubs and grasses. An unusually high concentration of driftwood accumulates on the sandy spit at this park.

Kayakers launching at Rebecca Spit boat ramp
Rebecca Spit is a popular destination in summer for yachts heading up or down the coast, and the sheltered deep anchorage in Drew Harbour on the west side of the spit is a long-time favourite anchorage for boaters. An easy walking loop trail leads along both sides of Rebecca Spit and offers ample opportunities for exploring the driftwood-strewn beach. Swimming, fishing, windsurfing, and kayaking are all popular activities at Rebecca Spitís large picnic area. Paddlers can set in at the boat launch and enjoy a scenic paddle around the bay.

Picnic tables overlooking Drew Harbour
The waters around Quadra Island are considered to be excellent for cold water scuba diving. Dive tours can be arranged through commercial companies on Quadra Island and Campbell River.

There is no provincial campground on Quadra Island, and camping is not permitted on Rebecca Spit, but the Cape Mudge Indian Band operates a great private campground at the southern end of Rebecca Spit Park.

The 177-hectare park offers extensive day-use facilities, with picnic tables overlooking the sandy beach, wheelchair accessible pit toilets, a grass playing field, and a boat launch ramp on the west side of the spit near the park entrance. There is one fresh water hand pump, located near the entrance to the park. All other amenities are available at nearby Heriot Bay.

Kayaks beached at Rebecca Spit, Quadra Island
Rebecca Spit Provincial Marine Park is located on a narrow hook of land on Quadra Island in the Discovery Islands of British Columbia, between Vancouver Island and the mainland of BC. From downtown Campbell River, take a ten-minute BC Ferries trip across Discovery Passage to Quathiaski Cove on Quadra Island, the largest island in the Discovery Islands group. Drive across the island toward Heriot Bay, following the signs to the Cortes Island Ferry. Rebecca Spit is located just south of Heriot Bay.
