About Barkley Sound: One of the remarkable characteristics of Barkley Sound is the division between the Broken Group Islands and the Deer Group – two very different archipelagos set within the same body of water. Whereas the Broken Group Islands are a maze, the Deer Group is linear. The Broken Group is in a national park; the Deer Group is a mishmash of reserves, First Nations treaty land, private property and Crown land. This means unregulated campsites instead of national park sites, and mixed uses such as a resort on Tzartus Island and a yacht club outpost in Robbers Pass.

But for exploration, the Deer Group can have as much to offer as the Broken Group: fewer secluded passages but a highly complex shoreline, a scattering of casual camping locations plus a good chance of meeting up with whales, which are regular visitors in Trevor Channel.

Options for destinations are numerous. Bamfield is the most common starting point, though kayakers could easily cross Imperial Eagle Channel to mix a Broken Group trip with Deer Group destinations.


  • Designed by kayakers and explorers who are experts in this region. 
  • Includes full coverage of the Deer Group and the Broken Group Islands unit of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, as well as adjacent waterways including Bamfield Inlet and the outer coast to Pachena Bay.
  • The mapsheet contains all land and marine features of interest, including campsites, launch points, rest stop, attractions and hazards.
  • In combination with mapsheet #210, The Broken Group, your exploration can be expanded to cover all of Barkley Sound. Handy overlap between the two regions covered means never having to navigate in the border between the two maps.
  • UTM grid lines for easy distance calculations.  Learn to understand and make the most of them.
  • Our in-house printing allows frequent product updates to ensure the latest information.
  • Printed on extremely waterproof/durable 10-mil stock when 4.3-mil stock is the norm.
  • Planning and logistical information is included on the opposite side of the main map to help make your adventure come to life.
  • Optimal size and format for use both at home for planning and on-water during your travels.
  • Augment your GPS navigation with a handy visual overview as you travel and as you plan your next day's agenda. In combination you will be well prepared for your adventure.
  • Use alone without electronic assistance by navigating the traditional way without reliance on batteries or connectivity. Truly disconnect! 

Don't forget the guide book: The perfect companion to the mapsheet is the BC Coast Explorer Vol. 1, which goes into much greater details about the features, attractions travel logistics and history. 

New! All 200-series mapsheets now include UTM grid lines. Learn to understand and make the most of them.

About the Wild Coast map series: In 2019, Wild Coast Publishing began embarking on an ambitious program to provide an unbroken series of mapsheets covering the entire BC coastline. The series begins with mapsheet #201 Brooks Peninsula and extends in order down the outer Vancouver Island and up the southern BC coast then finally north through the Inside Passage. You can view the currently available list of mapsheets here. The maps are designed for paddlers and boaters, right down to the size -- a handy 24x18", slightly smaller than a traditional street map and so easy to manage when on the water. Use it as a "deck topper" for easy visualization as you travel on the water, use it around the campfire or your anchorage at night to plan your next day's route, and at home for research when your journey is still in the dream stage. 

Get the Expedition pack: If you are transiting the coast or interested in more of the West Coast Vancouver Island titles, the West Vancouver Island Expedition Pack is your value option. Get all mapsheets #201 to #211 from Side Bay and Brooks Peninsula to Bamfield and Barkley Sound in one set. This saves significantly over the individual purchase price of the 11 mapsheets.
