New south end webcam installed

Features spectacular views of the coastal mountains and Campbell River’s world famous fishing grounds

Campbell River Tourism Promotion Society is pleased to introduce Campbell River’s newest webcam.

The webcam overlooks the south end of the Discovery Passage and features spectacular views of the coastal mountains and Campbell River’s world famous fishing grounds.

The webcam will pan through 20 programmable views including two Campbell River landmarks, the Cape Mudge lighthouse and Mittlenatch Island.

The views also include wildlife, marine traffic including cruise ships and beautiful sun rises over Quadra Island and the coastal mountains.

For several years now, Campbell River Tourism has been watching the interest level in webcams rise.

In 2014, campbellrivertourism.com saw an increase of 138 per cent over the previous year for Campbell River webcam searches.

The webcam page is the second most bookmarked page on the website and Social Media shares are up 600 per cent over 2013.

As a result, the Board of Directors decided to install a state-of-the-art, pan/tilt/zoom network webcam enclosed in a heated dome built for the marine climate.

“Our visitors and our local residents have been looking for Campbell River webcams so we searched for the right camera and location and feel that we have it here,” says Chris Steffens, the president of Campbell River Tourism. “The one camera shows views of the whole south end of the Discovery Passage. Whether you are sitting in another time zone planning a vacation here or you are a local looking for the current fishing conditions, this webcam will show you what you need.”

Campbell River Tourism Promotional Society is a volunteer organization and is solely funded by memberships.

One of the benefits of a membership is a direct link to embed the webcam in your website.
