Canadian West Coast Voyages by Boutique Ship

Desolation Sound

The best of all worlds — warm waters, great weather, great scenery

Adventure Among Inlets, Coves and Parks

Known as a boater’s paradise, Desolation Sound is your gateway to unparalleled adventure. Located on the edge of remote communities, this region possesses deep water passageways among a maze of islands possessing old growth forests, sparkling waterfalls and sandy shorelines.

Surrounded by BC’s famous coastal mountains, this warm water destination offers a cruising experience through calm, protected waters where hiking and kayaking excursions provide the chance to view an abundance of marine life. As you travel through the inlets and coves, find safe anchorage at scenic points such as Prideaux Haven, Tenedos Bay and Grace Harbour.

If the last couple of years have taught us anything, it is the value of spending time with family and friends. For 2022, we are offering a very limited opportunity to explore the wonders and warm waters of Desolation Sound.

From epic star-filled nights, calm waters, majestic scenery, and sightings of local wildlife, this area is bound to inspire, relax and infuse you and your family and friends with memories that will be talked about for a lifetime! For the young at heart, it’s a great place to explore and enjoy watersports galore, go on a rainforest adventure, take a dip in pristine secluded lakes, explore trails, comb the beaches, or you can just chill on the deck with a favourite book and recharge your soul.

First mapped in 1792 by Captain George Vancouver and Spanish explorers Dionisio Galiano and Cayetano Flores, this area has been inhabited by the Tia’amin tribes for thousands of years and falls within the traditional territories of the Klahoose, Tia’amin and Holmalco first nations.

If you are looking for beautiful anchorages, warmer waters and warm sunny days Desolation Sound is arguably the best area on the BC coastline. This area is only accessible by air or water and offers something for everyone.
