Jedediah Island is one of the newest provincial marine parks on the coast and a favourite trip for more experienced paddlers. Nestled between Texada and Lasqueti Islands, Jedediah is a 243-ha (600-a.) jewel with old-growth forests of Douglas-fir and arbutus, a variety of wildlife and a shoreline rich in marine life. 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.
