151 Acres Oceanfront, Porcher Island $490,000

Secluded Oceanfront Trophy Property!

This is one of only a few oceanfront properties on the island that has excellent well-sheltered moorage in Useless Bay on the northwest corner of Porcher Island. There is approximately 2844 ft of oceanfront, with a good sandy beach surrounding the bay, with a creek traversing the property. At high tide it is possible to come right into the creek mouth with an airplane or small boat. A majority of the central and western portions of the property are fairly open, with scattered pine and cedar throughout, although there are some wet areas. There are some remains of an old wooden flume, which carried water to a nearby mine. The property slopes downward, with steep rock bluffs overlooking the creek in the southern part of the property.

This property is located 15 miles (24 kms) south of Prince Rupert on the northern coast of Porcher Island, a large island just south of Prince Rupert, which is approx. 460 miles (740 km), as the crow flies, north of Vancouver.

Fishermen come from near and far to fish in this area. Goble Point and Edye Pass are referred to by local fishermen as “Money Point” due to the fantastic fishing for Pacific salmon and huge halibut in its surrounding waters. Chinook salmon, up to 80 lbs., is not uncommon.

The creek running through the property has trout and coho salmon at the bottom of the stream, with runs of pink salmon expected in the inter-tidal areas. Two nearby creeks, Big Useless Creek and Little Useless Creek, have runs of pink coho and chum salmon. Useless Bay contains a beautiful small white sandy-beached cove that has lots of dungeness crabs, clams and shellfish. Oona River, a fishing village, has charter boats available for both day and overnight trips.

The area is popular for kayaking and boating with miles of unpopulated sandy beaches. Porcher Island is home to deer and a number of small mammals. There is also a very wide range of birds, and numerous eagles can be seen throughout the island. We counted 38 eagles in one tree by a sea lion carcass.
