Broughton Archipelago is a group of islands located at the eastern end of Queen Charlotte Strait in Mount Waddington Regional District, British Columbia. The archipelago is the traditional territory of the Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw, Namgis, Ma’amtagila and Tlowitsis nations of the Kwakwaka’wakw peoples.
It is also a wilderness area consisting of a maze of several small islands, numerous islets and adjacent foreshore at the southern extremity of Queen Charlotte Strait, off the mouth of Knight Inlet and west coast of Gilford Island. The dozens of undeveloped and largely undiscovered islands are protected by the Broughton Archipelago Marine Provincial Park, the largest marine park in BC.
Established in 1992, Broughton Archipelago Marine Provincial Park offers excellent boating, kayaking and wildlife viewing opportunities. A multitude of islands provides sheltered waters and anchorages with a backdrop of the magnificent coastal mountains to the east and the waters of Queen Charlotte Strait to the west.
