I'm living aboard in Discovery Harbour Marina in Campbell River. We have the Campbell River Airport close by, and Comox Airport about 45 minutes away.
Plus, we have a mall associated with the marina with all of the usual mall outlets (Yes, it has a liquor store...), and a great liveaboard community.
The best part though is that we are perfectly positioned to cruise Desolation, Discovery, Cordero/Nodales, and onward north to the Broughtons and beyond.
The city has a Walmart, Home Depot, but no Costco.
I love it here.
And yes, there is a Timmies very close to the marina!
