Reply To: Copeland Island Kayaking … looking for route, camping info

Keep an eye on the Environment Canada Marine Weather Forecast (and It is true that it is not a long paddle from the Lund to the Copelands, but it can be rough paddling on Thulin Passage in strong winds and more rough when the winds are against the tide.

As noted by others here, Thulin Passage is also busy with vessel traffic in the warm months — as it is on the way to Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands to the north.

Make sure you have sufficient cordage for guying down your tent and/or tarp.

The Copelands are a great place to base-camp, but there is no water there and few streams or creeks in the area. Plan ahead for your water needs and room in your kayak to stow it all.
