Desolation Sound is a place of magnificent beauty, where mountains rise from the sea in the deeply cut glacial fjords. Mount Denman dominates the scene, towering more than a mile high above narrow channels with depths of over 2000 feet. It is a rugged coast, offset by warm sea temperatures, picturesque anchorages and a mild climate, making it world-class boating and sea kayaking destination.

As we explore the sound, we enter the domain of bald eagles, harbour seals, Steller and California sea lions, Dall’s and harbour porpoises, humpback whales, orcas, and more.
From lake hikes and waterfalls to warm water swims and vibrant coastal communities, Desolation Sound offers a wide array of unique experiences.
