WE are going by land in 2015. My wife wants to see Idaho and a few hot springs in 2015.
Just wait till 2016. Lord willing I will try to make a few very long trip up to B.C. One trip with my wife, one with my youngest boy and his wife, and to finish it off a trip with a old friend who is retiring that summer. All the trips will start in Port Hardy and go to who knows where from there.
With the price of fuel way down there must be people going in 2015. Let us all know where you are going and how was it.
For you new people going North get a hold of Old Salt he has a lot of info about B.C. waters.
May your keel stay wet and your seat stay dry

Leaving June 6th for Desolation Sound, will spend 4 weeks cruising and exploring the areas. Hopefully the price of fuel will remain low.

Had a wonderful trip that was shortened to 3 weeks but enjoyed our stay in Campbell River, Gorge Harbor, Lund and Cortez Island none the less. Took my sister along and now she is hooked on cruising. Generally speaking fuel price was reasonable and the boat ran well. Caught some nice Kings at Campbell River before returning home. Favorite part was anchorage in quiet coves and enjoying the shrimp we caught. Now planning a trip to Malibu with my BIL and his wife first week of September.

Bill:

...enjoyed our stay in ... Gorge Harbor (that's Harbour, Bill ... You're in Canada, eh?), ... Cortez Island (I know where Cortes Island is, Bill, and there's a nice anchorage on the West side called Gorge Harbour ...

Where did you stay in your "Favorite parts", Bill, and why doncha' poet (post) some pitchers of those "quiet coves" you enjoyed so much so we can hunt 'em up?

Did you make it to von Donop Inlet? There are 3 or 4 nice, and quite different, anchorages in there.

Yep, I plead completely guilty of being a poor speller, especially when the spelling is not my native tongue. I barely can handle mine yet alone another countries. Never owned a camera until I got my IPhone so pictures definitely are not my strength. We did enjoy spending time on the shores of Savary Island, anchoring on both north and south side for shore excursions. Overnighted at Refuge Cove and 2 days exploring around East and West Rodonda Islands, cruising around the north side of Raza Island and up past the east side of Sonora Island. Overnighted in a very nice cove on the west side of Sonora Island. All in all we had a great time and enjoyed the peacefulness and beauty of it all. Kind of surprising was the lack of boats cruising, was expecting to see many more then we did.

Leaving Thursday (Sept 3) for a 6 day trip to Chatterbox Falls via Jervis Inlet. Weather looks good for the most part with a little rain and some wind at times. Hoping for a pleasant trip. Taking my BIL & his wife along. Will stop in Egmont for a visit and maybe lunch.
