    Area Data

    Porcher Island

    The property is located in Oona River on the East side of Porcher Island. Porcher Island is one of the protective islands that rim the British Columbia coast and is the eighth largest island on the coast. Situated in Hecate Strait, it is 544 km2 (210 mi2) and is almost square in shape, at 35 km (22 mi) long and 29 km (18 mi) wide. Its northern tip is 26 km (16 mi) south-southwest of the City of Prince Rupert. It is separated from the mainland by Telegraph Passage, which is about 9.6 km (6 mi) in width near the north end of Porcher Island, narrowing to about 4.8 km (3 mi) wide near the southern part by Ogden Channel. Its coastline is deeply indented and mountains on the island rise over 610 m (2,000 ft) in height.

    Oona River

    The community of Oona River is situated on the lee side of Porcher Island in a well-protected harbour at the mouth of the Oona River. It faces eastward, looking over Ogden Channel toward the Skeena River. Twice a day the view is dramatically altered with the changing of the tide. As the water drops, stone fishing weirs used by Aboriginal fishers, perhaps as many as 5,000 years ago, are revealed, offering proof that the river has long supported prolific salmon runs and helped to sustain the people of the coast.

    Members of the founding immigrant families of the Oona River settlement were Scandinavian homesteaders who were recruited to live in the Northwest in the early 1900s. At its peak, the tight-knit community had more than 100 residents and 25 homes. Until the 1970s, fishing and forestry provided a stable economic base that supported the rural lifestyle preferred by its residents.

    Oona River Harbour Facility

    The Oona River Community Association (ORCA) operates the harbour as the Oona River Harbour Authority (ORHA). The ORHA provides moorage for commercial fishing vessels, residents and the traveling public. The use of the harbour at Oona River is subject to a moorage fee. ORHA provides hydro (30amp connections) for a fee. Water is free, but is not provided as potable water. Pump out service, fuel service or repairs are not available. Prince Rupert would be the nearest community for those services.

    Oona River

    If you visit Oona River there is a road on the end of the approach which leads to the community. The only retail services available are the post office, and accommodations by reservation.

    Coffee Time is at 10:00 a.m. and at 3:00 p.m. daily. If you talk to a local resident, they will invite you to this time honoured tradition.

    Prince Rupert

    The picturesque city of Prince Rupert, across Hecate Strait from the Queen Charlotte Islands, is the transportation hub for travelers to BC’s north coast.

    The busy waterfront of Prince Rupert, one of the world’s largest deep-water terminals, handles a huge volume of grain, coal, lumber and potash. Forestry, fishing and tourism are the economic mainstays of the approximately 12,200 residents.

    Prince Rupert is the crossroads for travelers to the Queen Charlotte Islands, Alaska, Vancouver Island and Vancouver. There are frequent ferry sailings on the BC Ferry to Skidegate on the Queen Charlotte Islands, and through the scenic Inside Passage to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island.
