Savary Island




Savary wharf has undergone substantial improvements.

The wood breakwater was removed, and a new metal one installed further out,

this allows for a longer ramp ( gentler slope),  and the extension of the float, to deeper water.

The wharf shed has been moved to open up access to the deck, and improves the view looking toward the Savary beach.!

With the new ramp , dollies are practical, and there should be a couple available.


Also lots of gravel has been applied to the main road, so the final drive to your cottage should be considerably smoother.

It's getting busy for The Long Weekend

Lund Resort ( formerly Hotel) renovations, somewhat chaotic.

Pay Parking at top of the hill under new management.
