WAYNE ADAMS AND CATHERINE KING

THE FLOATING ISLANDERS


"We want to live here until the end of our days"

Wayne Adams and Catherine King have devoted the last 20 years to a lifestyle so unique it brings visitors from all across North America.
 
Both former artists, the pair grew weary of the constraints of their old lives and set about building a floating “freedom cove” – a sustainable and 100% eco friendly haven in British Columbia, away from the stresses of built up cities.
 
The couple both live on the island, making a living by growing fruit and vegetables to sell in local towns. They’ve even managed to raise a family in their unusual home, which is anchored on the Pacific coast and comes complete with a lighthouse.
 
Unique in almost every way, Wayne and Catherine’s pink and teal home stands as testament to their dedication to living with and understanding nature.
