Description

Explore the inland ocean of one of British Columbia's most pristine wildernesses north of Desolation Sound. Travel the waterways and view the islands, mountains, historic villages and wildlife. Meet the people of the coast. Mariners and landlubbers alike will succumb to the lore of the amazing shores and inlets that comprise the Broughton Archipelago near the north end of Vancouver Island. This guide assists mariners to choose the best routes, anchorages and places to stay between Desolation Sound and Port Hardy.
