French Creek, Vancouver Island, British Columbia

Situated halfway between Parksville and Qualicum Beach on the Oceanside Route (19A), French Creek is a bustling marine community which has a Federal Dock with full marine facilities for visiting boaters, along with lots of moorage and a Coast Guard station. Charter operators using this as a base take visitors fishing, diving, or sightseeing, and the walk-on ferry to Lasqueti Island leaves from the dock.

There are a great variety of homes from the townhouse communities surrounding the championship golf course at Morningstar to waterfront properties in Columbia Beach.
