After some local cruising this Spring we ventured North to Desolation Sound on July 20th.
We stopped in Pender Harbour and Gorge Harbour before getting to our first anchorage at Octopus Island.
The Octopus Island Marine Park is a great spot.
To get there we transited through Beazley Passage (above picture). A slack tide is required.
From the head of Waiatt Bay we hiked to Newton Lake, about a 45 minute trip. Great swimming for the humans and the dogs!
