Desolation Sound

Kayaking Vancouver Island's Desolation Sound

Desolation Sound is a kayakers paradise entered at the confluence of Malaspina Inlet and Homfray Channel. Kayakers have been enjoying the spectacular vistas and calm waters. Kayakers enjoy exploring the islands and coves that make up the unique shoreline. Desolation Sound Marine Provincial Park has more than 60 km of shoreline, several islands, numerous small bays and snug coves. The warm waters of the park are ideal for swimming and scuba diving; the forested upland offers a shady refuge of trails and small lakes and designated campsites.
