Irvines Landing

IRVINES LANDING, on the SUNSHINE COAST 85 km northwest of VANCOUVER, was the first non-aboriginal settlement on PENDER HARBOUR. Charles Irvine opened a store and hotel at the harbour's north entrance in the 1880s; his wharf became the local port of call for UNION STEAMSHIPS. Joe Gonsalves and Theodore Dames built a larger hotel in the early 1900s and various stores, resorts and boatyards have operated there over the years. Today the landing is the site of a marina and pub.
