Description From Owner:
  • After Edward R. Blunden, second master of HM hired surveying vessel Beaver when the ship was making a survey here in 1863.
  • Ecowista Peninsula - Named after a village on its west coast, whose Nootka Indian name can be translated as 'battle place.'
  • Grice Bay - After John Grice (1841-1931), who in 1888 became Tofino's first white settler and later the local justice of the peace. He was 'a well-educated man, a lover of Shakespeare and the classics, and some thing of an astronomer.'
  • With permission from G.P.V and Helen B. Akrigg 1997 British Columbia Place Names. UBC Press.
