Hotham Sound/Jervis Island Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Close to Vancouver, with great fishing and surreal beauty, this area is quickly becoming known in paddling circles. Exploring Hotham Sound requires 3–4 days. If you have more than a week, you might want to extend your trip to include the majesty of Jervis Inlet and Princess Louisa Inlet. Be forewarned: Although these inlets are beautiful, they are typically steep sided and provide few camping opportunities—you will have to keep your eyes open. The stretch of coastline from Gibsons north to Egmont along the east side of the Strait of Georgia is known as the Sunshine Coast.

It is a region with a mild, dry and semi-Mediterranean climate that has proved attractive to settlement and industry. Despite these pressures, the Sunshine Coast continues to provide a number of superb wilderness experiences for paddlers of all abilities. From the ideal learning environment of Sechelt Inlet to the exposed 32-km (20-mi.) coastline between Gibsons and Sechelt, the Sunshine Coast offers some of the best paddling experiences in southwestern British Columbia."
