Land and Sea Work Magic on the Soul

Desolation Sound, so misnamed by Captain George Vancouver in 1792, is in reality, an unforgettable experience. Many regard it as one of the best cruising grounds in the world. The variety of spectacular scenery, quiet anchorages, turquoise fjords, sparkling island lakes and swimming beaches are just some of its attributes. These surprisingly warm ocean waters delight swimmers of all ages. A stunning snowcapped mountain backdrop is dominated by 9,000 ft. Mt. Denman.

An ebb tide invites us to dinghy ashore, dig for clams, harvest mussels, or shuck a pail of oysters. The shellfish is abundant. Desolation Sound has more surprises: the tide–swept Discovery Islands offer seasonal world-class fishing for the prized Chinook salmon…or Tyees as they’re called over 25 pounds. Savour your catch with a chilled bottle of Chardonnay. Many more secluded anchorages, some within marine parks, beckon further exploration by kayak or dinghy. It is said that one could spend several weeks in the area and never overnight twice in the same idyllic cove. If a yacht charter holiday among sheltered waters and within a few hours cruise of most amenities is on your wish list, Desolation Sound is your destination.
