Discovery Land Company is excited to announce our 24th private luxury residential community. James Island Golf and Ocean Club, a 780-acre private island in British Columbia with only 76 lots, is Discovery Land Company’s most exclusive community to date and Discovery’s first project in Canada.

James Island is situated among the Gulf Islands of British Columbia, just miles from the city of Victoria on Vancouver Island and less than 100 miles from Seattle and Vancouver. This family-friendly destination encompasses 780 acres of enchanting, diverse landscape and more than seven miles of shoreline.

True to the Discovery tradition, James Island will offer a wide range of world-class amenities and activities for every member of the family, including an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course and practice facility, state-of-the-art clubhouse with luxury day spa and fitness facilities, locally-inspired dining venues, organic farm and gardens, exhilarating Outdoor Pursuits program, Kid’s Club, over-water waterfront Powder Wharf restaurant and gathering space, and much more.

From lush forests to pristine waters, James Island will also host a variety of thrilling outdoor adventures. Discovery’s Outdoor Pursuits program at James Island will draw upon the local culture and landscape of the Pacific Northwest, with exciting programs for all ages and abilities such as salmon fishing, crabbing, sea kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, and more. Kid-specific offerings, including treehouses, camping expeditions, and a tree-top aerial course, will focus on creating lasting memories for the younger generation.

James Island will also set a new standard in sustainability at Discovery, aiming to synthesize the Island’s natural character and resources with our signature five-star amenities and residential homesites. At James Island, Discovery will launch new sustainability initiatives such as repurposing timber into building materials at an on-site mill, using solar and hydropower, xeriscaping (low-water-use landscaping), implementing comprehensive recycling and composting programs, promoting the use of electric vehicles on the Island, employing water conservation methods, and cultivating an on-site organic farm to supply ingredients to food and beverage services.

Driven by a commitment to excellence and innovation, Discovery’s distinguishing hallmark is a unique approach to each location that respectfully integrates the natural and cultural characteristics of the land that surrounds it. With family connection and lifelong memory-making at the forefront of every development decision, Discovery will uphold this beloved tradition at James Island, creating a truly private and secluded haven for members of every age.
