  • This place is worth visiting if you are in Campbell River. The displays in the Centre are very informative and the salmon viewing outside is good.  more »
  • once more the family who visited from Germany really enjoyed this area. They loved it !! Def planning to return  more »
  • We briefly visited the exhibition to the inside of the building which in itself was interesting. We did not tour, but smiled the short end to the river where the salmon are and there stood across a black bear that tried to get a nice salmon between his choose. Here he did a quarter over. We were able to him that all the time from on the other side of the River (near). Super experience.

  • Neat place with lots of little salmon. Could use a better interpretive centre and more events.
  • Make sure you visit when the fish are running. Watch out for bears they are definitely here. Watch for danger regarding young children.

Where to stay in Campbell River

If you choose to stay in Campbell River itself, you'll likely find yourself in a friendly inn or guesthouse overlooking the estuary, where the river meets Discovery Passage. You can get a clearer view of the strait by staying on the coast, on the eastern side of town, where motels look across the water to Yaculta on the other side. Head farther south along Island Highway for even quieter coastal accommodations only a few minutes' drive from the local airport.
