Grant Reef
A reef that lie between 2.8 and 4 miles south of Savary.

"The Union Steamship Capilano, with a crew of 18, foundered on Grant Reef on October 2 1915. They were possibly on their way to Alaska. The vessel had hit a log earlier and had stopped at Van Anda on Texada Island to make sure all was well. With no apparent damage seen they continued on their way with disastrous results. All crew members were saved."
