About Desolation Sound-Discovery Islands: Desolation Sound has long been one of the favorite cruising destinations of the British Columbia coast, but it is only a small part of the myriad islands, passages and coves that abound within the adjacent Discovery Islands. Within them are some of the most challenging rapids on the Pacific coast, making this the true destination for adventurers.
About this mapsheet: The Inside Passage Chart Assistant series is composed of 11 mapsheets designed to enable transit of the British Columbia coast from Washington State to Smith Inlet by using a uniformly scaled and continuous set of mapsheets. Since most mariners use electronic navigation, these mapsheets can be used for logistics and planning where a broad visual overview is necessary. You can read more about the Inside Passage series here. All Chart Assistants are printed on heavy synthetic paper to withstand the toughest conditions. Please note: This mapsheet is single-sided to provide a visual overview only.
Combining with Deck Toppers: These mapsheets can be used in combination with the Deck Topper series to fill in the vast majority of the southern British Columbia coast. The above three mapsheets use a scale better suited to these locations than can be provided by the Deck Topper series. Use mapsheets #232-235 to provide better coverage for this area.
