Blind Channel highlights:
The area first navigated by Vancouver 1792 . By 1910, a sawmill was in full operation at Blind channel. Approximately 8 people lived here at this time. By 1918, there was 120 people at Blind Channel and changes abounded the next few decades. By the 1930’s nine various bootleggers operated from Blind Channel. Blind Channel became a regular stop of the Union steamships, the mainstream transportation of the era. Consequently the population grew into the forties, with a cannery and a shingle mill on sight along with two dance halls. As centralization crept onto the coast of BC the population at Blind Channel, along with many other coastal communities slowly began to wane. The current owners purchased the property in 1969 and have transformed the site to what greets you today, a full service marina and resort.
Forest trails with varying degrees of difficulty lead from the resort. One pleasant loop takes visitors up to a huge first growth Western Red Cedar. Further along, the next loop intersects with logging roads, which meander up the valley and around the island.
Lunch on the deck or dinner in the restaurant. Lunch generally is barbequed hamburgers or schnitzel on a beautifully situation barbeque area and deck.
