This trip takes you from the Port Edward boat launch across Chatham Sound to the north end of Porcher Island. It is possible to accomplish this trip in as little as 4 days though a week is recommended; the Chatham Sound crossing is quite exposed and dependent on favourable weather. The extreme north end of British Columbia’s Inside Passage comprises the islands that border Chatham Sound on their east and Hecate Strait and Dixon Entrance on their west. Located only 32 km (20 mi.) south of the Alaskan border at their northernmost point, these islands are largely uninhabited and pristine. Their western coastlines are beautiful, rugged and irregular, affording shelter in small bays as well as the occasional sandy beaches. Although exposed and not for the faint of heart, islands such as Porcher, Stephens and Dundas provide some of the best paddling B.C. has to offer.
