  • It is a great break from the chaos of modern society. The nature allows you to take a step back and just enjoy the wind and birds. There are many seals, oysters, star fish, eagles and so many other animals. The waters can be so calm that you think you are on a lake and forget that this is still part of the Pacific Ocean.
  • It is beautiful, pristine and was not crowded mid June. Finding a place to potty a dog can be a challenge.
  • What an amazing location. Simply a must see for any proud BC resident. Gives you a new respect for nature's beauty.
  • So much natural beauty, many available anchorages with good protection, my favorite repeat destination in my annual summer cruise.
  • Desolate is about the last word I would use to describe this place. Simply magnificent scenery.
