Echo Bay Marine Provincial Park is a protected area on BC’s South-Central Coast.

Echo Bay Marine Provincial Park

This site has been used by First Nations people for hundreds of years, as evidenced by the many thick midden deposits found within the park. Prior to being established as a Provincial Park in 1971, this site was a Ministry of Forests ranger station in the 1950s.

Access to Echo Bay Marine Provincial Park on the north-western side of Gilford Island is by boat or floatplane only. This small park provides a sheltered spot for boaters to stop and stretch their legs. A number of kayak transportation companies utilize Echo Bay as a drop off spot for their kayak operations as it is a good place to start a journey through the adjacent Broughton Archipelago.

A small wharf provides overnight tie-up facilities for vessels less than 7 metres. Larger vessels must anchor or use the neighbouring docks located at one of the two resorts in the community of Echo Bay. Fuel and supplies are also available at these resorts, adjacent to the park. Other amenities available at Echo Bay include a post office, grocery store and arts and crafts stores.
