Desolation Sound

One of the most popular cruising destinations along the inside passage is Desolation Sound, named by Captain George Vancouver in 1792. Many experienced yachtsmen regard the Desolation Sound area as not only the most beautiful and varied cruising area in British Columbia, but equal to, if not better than, any other area in the world. This coastal haven of majestic fjords, towering 7,000 ft. peaks, cascading waterfalls, and pristine lakes provides countless well protected anchorages scattered throughout its spectacular cruising grounds.

Itinerary Cruising Notes

Toba Inlet

Toba Inlet borders the northern edge of the Desolation Sound cruising area. It was first explored by Don Valdes on June 27, 1792. It was named "Toba" by Valdes after Antonio Toba Arredondo, one of the officers of the Malaspina expedition.

Itinerary

The Broughtons

A beautiful maze of islands offering excellent boating, kayaking and wildlife viewing opportunities. This multitude of islands provides boaters sheltered waters and anchorages with a backdrop of the magnificent coastal mountains to the east and the waters of Queen Charlotte Strait to the west

Itinerary

Princess Louisa Inlet

Princess Louisa has a charm and scenic beauty that no words can adequately describe. It must be seen and experienced personally but is only accessible by boat. This makes Louisa a great charter destination.
