5/5 based on 20 reviews on the web
Princess Louisa Inlet on the British Columbia Coast is in length and lies at the north east end of Jervis Inlet. It is entered through Malibu Rapids off Queens Reach past Malibu, a former private resort and now youth camp. A portion of the area makes up Princess Louisa Marine Provincial Park. James Bruce Falls and Chatterbox Falls are on Loquilts Creek, a large stream that enters the head of the inlet.HistoryIn June 1792 George Vancouver, charting the BC Coast in a search for the Northwest Passage, explored Jervis Inlet to its end and apparently found the entrance to Princess Louisa Inlet but did not enter as the tide was ebbing through Malibu Rapids at the time. In 1860 Captain George Richards surveyed and mapped Jervis and Princess Louisa Inlets naming it and surrounding features. In the same year Commander Richard Charles Mayne explored the valley at the head of the inlet hoping that it would lead to the interior of British Columbia.

  • With a small boat for up to 11 people from Egmont left. Unfortunately the weather was not so good, which is actually very important. Along beautiful rocks dangers titanium the entrance to the inlet at Malibu. Beautiful sight if you the inlet entrance, further highlighted by the waterfall. Take warm clothes because the boat sails on some pieces very hard. Along the way, unfortunately no bears, but curious seals.
