Southey Island is a small rocky island located about 10 miles (16km) north of Nanaimo off the east coast of Vancouver Island near Nanoose Harbour.
The island sits in a beautiful location with views out across the Strait of Georgia.
A gravel beach is perfect for launching and landing kayaks at all tide levels.
Small tent sites are scattered among the rocks and are easily above the highest tide levels.
I could find no water source.
A nice variety of wildflowers are abundant and scattered among the rocks.
At least one White-tailed Deer lives on the island.
