was a Cadboro schooner in the employ of the Hudson's Bay Company in its operations on the Pacific Northwest Coast in the early 19th century. The 71 ton vessel carried 4 guns and had a crew of 12 men. In 1842  James Douglas (later Sir James Douglas, Governor of the Colonies of Vancouver Island and British Columbia) and six other company staff traveled from Fort Vancouver overland to Fort Nisqually on the Puget Sound. The Cadboro was used to sail north to reconnoitre the location of what would become Fort Camosun, shortly afterwards renamed Fort Victoria. The  Cadboro was the first vessel to anchor in Cadboro Bay, British Columbia and was the namesake of that bay and the community named for it, and adjoining Cadboro Point. 
Cadboro was chartered to transport the survivors of the shipwreck of schooner USS to California. Shark Cadboro was lost in 1860, on a lumber voyage from Puget Sound.
