Thetis Island Tour

Birds of a Feather’s Zodiac Medline III based in Victoria is available for private charter transport (water taxi) to and from Thetis Island. We are also available for marine eco-tour charters, or simply boating the west coast.

 

History:

Thetis Island was named after the H.M.S. Thetis, a 36 gun British frigate which was on the Pacific station in the mid 1800’s surveying the region.  The first european pioneers moved onto Thetis in 1874. Today there are appox. 350 permenant residents.

 

 

Thetis is a small, quiet island, ideal for a picnic day trip to watch wildlife and explore secluded bays and inlets.

Canoe Pass is an infamous shallow, narrow passage between Thetis and Kuper Island.  It was dredged in 1905 to allow boat traffic between the islands.

Pilkey Point on the northeast tip of Thetis is a popular spot to picnic and swim.
