Dayman Island


Dayman Island

Dayman Island is a privately owned island located off the coast of British Columbia, Canada, beside Thetis Island and Hudson Island. It is about 24 acres (9.7 ha) in size, and has a 2100 sq ft (195.1 m²) year-round main residence and a caretaker's residence.

Likely named after Dayman, an officer aboard HMS Thetis, 36-guns, on this station 1851-1853, under the command of Captain Augustus Leopold Kuper, CB. As Kuper Island was named in 1858 by Captain Richards, HMS Plumper, Dayman Island was possibly named at the same time, although not labeled on resulting Admiralty Chart 579.
