The beautiful and popular cruising ground of Desolation Sound is the largest marine park in southern British Columbia. Its warm waters are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, diving, canoeing and kayaking. It has several offshore islands, and the upland areas contain a number of lakes, waterways and waterfalls, culminating in the magnificent snowcapped peaks of the Coast Mountains. Whether you’re traveling by motor vessel, sailboat, or kayak, this is a marvelous area to explore.
The front of our Desolation Sound map includes a chart finder, a locator map, inset maps, and the unique Proven Cruising Routes© taken by Don and Réanne Douglass aboard their research vessel, Baidarka. Each map is GPS compatible. The back of the map has large-scale, detailed diagrams of local harbors and coves—all the places to tie up and anchor. Included are an alphabetical index of places, and a listing of route waypoints.
