Rainy day, time to throw out some trip concepts. I’m going to try to be brief here, see if I can avoid “Tolstoy goes camping”.
If you are interested in camping trips to any of these three regions, please respond with 1) the time of year you would have available for a trip, 2) the number of days you have available, and 3) the rough distance you can paddle per day on a multi-day trip.
With this information, I can then start to work with you on creating a trip. Once we have settled on a plan, we can submit this for listing as an official SKABC trip. Others could join, but the trip concept would be established.
Trip A: Jervis Inlet. This includes upper Jervis, Hotham Sound and Nelson Island areas. (Okay, let’s add Sechelt Inlet, too, just for fun.) The options here are infinite. A two-day trip to Nelson Island is possible. So is a three-day trip to Hotham Sound. Then there are the week-long (at a minimum) efforts to reach the end of Jervis (seldom paddled but very nice) and Princess Louisa Inlet.
Trip B: Desolation Sound Beyond Curme. Sure the Curme Islands are nice, but so is Homfray Channel, the Rendezvous Islands, the Penn Islands and a host of other places that can be accessed from Lund or Okeover Inlet. You will have to have at least a week available for this. Even the simplest of trips up Homfray Channel or Lewis Channel will take two or three days in each direction.
Trip C: Central Coast Out Of Bella Bella. Set aside two weeks for this one. There is no point in travelling this far for a short paddle. And, you know what, in two weeks of paddling the Central Coast, you will only begin to see what this region has to offer. It is an incredibly complex set of islands and channels. The one thing to keep in mind here is that ferry bookings are essential. So, if there is interest, the sooner we set this up, the better.
I know this is all somewhat vague. But, if you are interested in paddling through any of these three regions, let me know and we’ll work something up that fits you and your schedule.
