Beautiful Desolation Sound along our course for Tenedos Bay. It may not look like it,

but this is heavily used by boaters. To go north of this, boats must be piloted through one or more rapids.

That challenge and the distances involved keep most skippers to the south inside the Desolation Sound area.

Many small boat anchorage areas are part of British Columbia Parks. Ashore they frequently

offer maintained hiking trails and wood platformed tent campsites for kayakers. The trails make it easy to get out into

the backcountry - where the bears are.

Refuge Cove has a fuel dock, a small marina, grocery store, hamburger stand and coffee house all built on stilts.

The whole island was deeded to a commune like community. All of the

island twenty paces behind is declared private and is "off limits" to visitors.
