Princess Louisa National Park

Vancouver Yachting - Princess Louisa ParkThere are no words to describe the emotion as you sail into Princess Louisa Inlet. Your eagle eye catches an elongated white scratch mark rising about 2,000 feet on a sheer cliff face. It slices across and disappears into the dark-green at the top. Suddenly your attention is diverted as another splash of white that beams across your face. As you cruise closer you can see movement and you hear the power of water. The whitewater tumbles down, as steep rapids, disappearing behind rocks and reappearing closer to the water and then finally, in one magnificent leap, it plunges off the cliff and into the tranquil inlet water, a hundred feet below. As you sail closer to the falls, a mist comes out to greet you and finally you reach a beach, adjacent to what is commonly known as Chatterbox Falls.

At the head of this inlet, there is a 900 ft long dock.  During the height of the season, it may be necessary to raft alongside other vessels.  From this dock, an easy 5-minute stroll through the woods will bring you to the foot of Chatterbox Falls.  For the more energetic, a hike up to the “Trapper’s Cabin”, a steep 2-hour grind up a badly kept trail will give you a magnificent view and a very good reason to sleep exceptionally well that evening when you eventually get back to the boat.  For the less energetic, relax on the boat and soak up the ambience and enjoy the very reason for the National Geographic magazine stated that this is one of the top 10 sailing destinations in the world!
