Explore the remote wilderness
In a landscape that is worthy of every photo taken as the snow-capped mountains reach up to a steep 6,000 feet and the exploration of waterfalls and wildlife make everyday a new experience. Established by the BC government in 1973, Desolation Sound Marine Park is the largest Marine Park in B.C consisting of more than 14,000 acres of highland and 60 km of shoreline.
Explore the endless valley of coves, islets, bays and beaches surrounded by towering peaks. It is humbling to sit amidst such vast and stunning panoramas, and isn’t overstated when quoted as “one of the most scenically outstanding anchorages anywhere.” Multiple trails lead to various fresh water lakes, streams, and hidden waterfalls. A maze of interconnected shallow coves create warm and stunningly clear lagoons. Stretch out on sun-heated rocks and take it all in.
