Because… life is better on the lake!

Sometimes, we can’t even believe that we have one of the most beautiful lakes on Vancouver Island right in our backyard! Beyond its mesmerizing beauty, the lake has much to offer; like fishing, swimming, waterskiing, and more! If you’re new to outdoor sports (or maybe just have two left feet) not to worry – on Sproat Lake you don’t have to be an expert; we have a variety of clubs and companies for lessons and rentals. 

Here are a few of our faves:

Sproat Lake Canoe Club caters to both recreational and competitive paddlers all year. The Club hosts events and races, as well as has training and coaching available for those who are new to the sport or looking to enhance their skills.

Port Alberni and Sproat Lake are some of Vancouver Island’s gems – a small town that offers residents everything from outdoor adventure, boating and fishing, to restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Homeowners know that it provides everything they need, and here at the Dave Team, we are seeing that the Port Alberni and Sproat Lake Real Estate market is thriving with more and more out-of-town buyers.    2015 has been busy. In October, we handled three times more volume than in October 2014. This is evident by the number of sold signs around Port Alberni and on the lake.  Just like the area, we’re growing and working with more buyers, helping them find and buy their dream home.

There are many reasons why Vancouver Island was voted one of the ‘World's Top Ten Islands’ in 2014 by Travel and Leisure Magazine. It has an abundance of rain forests, beaches, mountains, oceans, rivers and lakes that include a vast range of wildlife species. Sproat Lake is the most beautiful and most popular lake among tourists and Vancouver Island residents.

Located just off the north shore of Highway 4, it is over 25 kilometers in length with more than 300 kilometers of shoreline and a surface just shy of 10,000 acres. Its azure water is surrounded with mountains that are filled with lush forestry, being warmed by the Port Alberni Valley
