Chapter 10: North Coast & Haida Gwaii

Here’s where you’ll find the latest notes & updates about specific springs on the North Coast and Haida Gwaii.  If a spring name has no other information listed under it, then there haven’t been any changes since the book was published.  This page contains only the current known status; for a history of changes, see the News & Updates page.

Bishop Bay Hot Springs

March 25, 2015: On March 15, 2015 BC Parks carried out repairs to the dock at these hot springs. However, the ramp between shore and the dock was broken in two parts and could not be repaired on site. The ramp was removed and taken to Prince Rupert for repairs or replacement. It is unknown when the ramp will be put back in place. Therefore, be prepared to row ashore from the dock to get to the hot springs.

An updated Bathhouse will also be built, and 900 metres of boardwalk on the island will be replaced as part of the project.

The Islands Offer So Many Experiences …

If you do someday make the journey to visit Hotspring Island, be sure to set aside some extra time to experience a few of the other adventures that Haida Gwaii offers.  One example is Naikoon Provincial Park, with a beach that stretches over 100 km up the east side of Graham Island.
