Waterfront like this is hard to find in the Haida Gwaii Archipelago (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands). Robertson Island is included within the boundaries of Queen Charlotte City yet it offers the privacy and seclusion of small island living. Robertson Island is separated from Graham Island by a narrow passage of water which can be crossed in a small boat or on foot at low tides. A schedule of restrictions is in place to maintain the quality of development on the island which will protect your investment.
