Barkley Sound

Originally explored and named after 18th-century fur trader Charles William Barkley, the bays, islands, and inlets encompassed by Barkley Sound now serve as a paradise for boaters and paddlers. Visitors take a trip to Barkley Sound to discover hundreds of tiny islands, none of which stretches for more than 2 km (1.2 mi) in length. Adventurous nature lovers flock here at the peak of the summer season, drawn by good diving, fishing, and hiking opportunities. During the off-season, a vacation in Barkley Sound remains an ideal option for those who value solitude and wish to soak in the area's natural sights undisturbed by other tourists.
