Desolation Sound

Oct 05, 2018 - National Geographic Sea Bird


In 1792, Captain George Vancouver sailed into this place and saw a bleak waterway that he considered useless and unworthy of exploration, hence the name Desolation Sound. But we disagree with Cpt. Vancouver. The Coast Mountains made a beautiful backdrop, the waters were calm, and the fog floated nicely around the rolling hills. The best way to spend the last afternoon of our voyage was exploring by expedition landing craft and kayak.
