A maze of excellent anchorages, soaring mountain ranges ,cascading waterfalls and abundant wildlife make this arguably one of the most outstanding cruising areas on this planet. Snow capped peaks of the Coast Mountains soar from the tideline to heights of 7,875 feet (2400 m). In places where the anchorages are not troubled by strong currents the still water is warm and is one of the few cruising grounds in Canadian waters that boasts wonderfully warm waters. There are numerous lakes that are fresh water so fresh water swimming is on the cards too!
Many of the select anchorages are close together, so short days of sailing in sheltered waters make this a very relaxing cruising experience. This is also a marvelous place to explore by kayak.
Desolation Sound is really the complete package.
