Desolation Sound Professional Review and Guide
"This trip passes through Desolation Sound and Homfray Channel. The route leaves from Lund, although there is an alternative and more protected launch site in Okeover Inlet, on the eastern side of the Malaspina Peninsula. Located beyond the northern terminus of Highway 101, Desolation Sound greets thousands of boaters every summer with its spectacular scenery and unusually warm waters. Bordered by the Coast Mountains of mainland B.C. to the east and the Discovery Islands to the west, Desolation Sound offers paddlers of all abilities a wilderness unscarred by the development that is so common in southern B.C. It is here that paddlers often gain their first taste of the North Coast."
