Duck bay at low tide
One of the least used waterfront areas on the island, so it is a great place to camp, and also a great place to observe herons and eagles. It takes about half an hour to walk there from the dock.

(1) From the dock turn right onto Malaspina Promenade and then go left up the hill at the Y-Junction.
(2) Stay on Vancouver Boulevard. You'll pass Riggers and turn-offs for Brian's Way, Patricia Crescent, etc.
(3) Continue down the hill till it flattens at the bottom. On your left you'll see a sign that says you've reached Duck Bay.

1. "A shallow reef of massive boulders - left behind by glacial run-off during the last de-glaciation in this area - extends for hundreds of metres off-shore, deterring powerboats and vacationers from approaching too closely. This coupled with a lack of development in the central portion of Savary means that the area known as Duck Bay is virtually deserted at all times of year, with the occasional exception of residents walking their dogs in the trails behind the beach."
