Desolation Sound collage

From Bellingham you'll visit the Canadian Gulf Islands, and British Columbia's Sunshine Coast on your way to spectacular Desolation Sound. Two or three weeks will allow for a leisurely pace and time to explore Desolation Sound. And, if you go for three weeks you'll also see Jervis Inlet and stunning Princess Louisa Inlet and Chatterbox Falls. Serving as guide, naturalist and local historian, your flotilla leader will help you discover an enriched cruising experience among these beautiful and diverse inlets and islands.
